My children breezed by this display in favor of early Star Trek toys.
Made in Japan in the 1950s, this tricycle was part of the Shelburne Museum's Time Machines exhibit. I like the tractor-like handlebars with bell. The hubs are space-agey, the chrome seat support and step plate all shiny, suggestive of designers' fascination with space-related concepts.
