Well, I never actually had a Big Wheel... I kept trying to convince my folks but my mom's arguement was always, "you'll outgrow it too fast". I think the real reason was b/c there were so many kids w/ those things on our block and it drove her nuts! You knew it was after school or cartoons were over on Saturday mornings when you heard the clicking of those Big Wheels outside! I had to settle for using whoever who let me ride theirs. I lived on a long hill in NYC. Kids used to race 'em, but my favorite game was playing chicken! Kids would stand down at the bottom of the hill and jump outta the way before they got creamed! But what I hated is when kids would do this to unwilling targets! They would pick someone out (and 3 times this happened to me, once right in front of my mom!) and mow them down! This, unfortunately sealed the deal of me never owning one of these beauties. But this is something I definitely miss seeing... 20 neighborhood kids on their Big Wheels!
