I could never sit on one of those!!! Even thinking about it now is kind of making me dizzy, haha.

a rooster on wheels. it was plastic and you had to attach a rope on the loop at the front of the toy and you pulled on it to make it roll behind you. I don't know who gave me that toy, but it is the only toy I have left from my baby years (all my other toys I had before I was 8yrs old burned in our house fire.) my rooster and my sister's rabbit on wheels were found almost a year after the fire at my grandparents house in the hands of my younger cousins who were playing with them. my parents requested to have them back since they were ours and my grandparents gladly gave them back. they were very understanding too. I still have my rooster and will never part from it either. they don't make those anymore. after that, it was a barbie doll that was my favourite (still have that as well). was the first barbie doll I received after the house fire. it is missing hair, fingers and toes have broken off over the years of me playing with it. if I could get both these toys restored, I would do it in a flash and wouldn't care how much it cost either. I know my rooster can be restored to its original state, but not too sure about my barbie doll though. those are the only toys I have left from my childhood. forgot to say, my rooster will be 50 yrs old this coming christmas. (I received it as my first christmas gift. I was 11 months old on my first christmas, turned 1 yr old 6 days later lol). my barbie will be 41 yrs old on christmas.
