A classic from my childhood!!!

Maybe my recollections from childhood are fuzzy, but aren't Big Wheels supposed to have a hand brake on one of the back wheels? Part of the fun was locking the wheel and going into a spin.

Exactly what I thought. I rolled my eyes when I saw the picture of the kid riding with a helmet. How did we ever survive back in the day???

I had forgotten about that, but you are right- and all Big Wheels were orange with black wheels when I was a kid.

No handbrake, no deal! I've got some crazy kids that seem to lack fear at home and by god I want to see what they are capable of! Mine had a handbrake, did you know the tires could be worn through? (Helmet is for legal reasons I'm sure, no kid wears one irl except those with pop quiz parents that don't like brain damaged kids... well or maybe just those that want to enforce safety, no parent wants brain damaged kids.)

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

Every time I see a trike, I think of those glider trikes and wish woot would get them again, because part of me wants to do the stuff they do in this movie.

You just backpedal...the handbrake always just made me turn to the right...which I could have done with the handlebars...or the classic sneaker stop...turn into the grass and the all time best - stand up and watch it roll away!

My son's didn't.

I chose a big wheel over a trike for my son. I liked that its low center of gravity - less likely to tip. He rode that thing for years.

Always wear your helmet, kids. And correctly - over your forehead.

I think I'll wait until Woot! offers this: http://www.amazon.com/High-Roller-Adult-Wheel-Trike/dp/B00ADICLBA


And yes, the original had a hand brake. This is the one I had as a kid:

I got one of these for my boyfriend's 4-year-old niece earlier this year. We finally got to see her ride it this weekend. She could not stop thanking us for her "bicycle." She loves it.

It fits her on the smallest setting, and she has plenty of room to grow into it. It's low enough to the ground that she can get used to pedaling without worrying about balancing, even when turning. The steering column is a little tight when you first put it together (thanks Papa and uncle J), but it loosens up and becomes easier to steer over time.

Basically, just as awesome as I remember my white and purple Big Wheel being.

Yeah, this thing is totally missing the power slide hand brake.

I wonder if Woot will ever get the Green Machine???

I remember the hand brake, but the ones I bought in the 80s didn't have it either. I have one of the new ones that my grandkids ride when they come over, they call it the 'motorcycle' and I have to buy a couple more because they always fight over it.

You're thinking green machine. It had the hand brake, the big wheel never did. At least that's the way we rolled in the 70's. Of course my movement toy of choice was cardboard down a dry grass hill, but not to many undeveloped hills around these days.

Green Machine - WHAT A RIDE.

Not sure which alternate universe you grew up in but all the ones I rode in the 70's started off having the hand brake, as shown in the video above. They also started out with a nice round front wheel that eventually got a flat spot/hole, same as the rear wheel on those that the hand brake stayed attached.
