Where's the fire?


I was sitting next to this cute little vintage riding toy fire truck while I was eating lunch in a sandwich shop over the weekend. I'm not sure if it is a replica or the real thing, but I think it's still a treasure. If it had been for sale, I would have bought it for my youngest grandson.

Linking to Tuesday's Treasures.

How neat Lois! I had one when I was a little guy...guys never seem to outgrow this stuff. Thanks so much for sharing this treasure and I hope that you hurry on back.

Looks in very good shape...maybe too good shape? We had something similar for our son in his first couple of years of life and he loved it...drove it all over the back yard being chased by our German Shepherd, Hans. :)

And he'd have loved it wearing not a hat... but a helmet!!!

You are certainly a doting grandmother, Lois. Nothing wrong with that.

Really cute!

So adorable! I think you would have been shocked at how much they charge for real vintage ones...I had considered getting one for our grandson too. It never happened. :-)

Yes! No wonder you wished you could buy it!!! All little boys love firemen and fire trucks (at least all the ones I ever knew did).
