Vintage Pedal Cars of Soviet kids

Vintage Pedal Cars of Soviet kids

Now they don’t make them anymore. They don’t even make ones relatively similar to them. As an alternative you can get a plastic car or the maximum cool stuff now is an electric toy car that you can drive, which is also mostly made of plastic.

However, sometime before that they were making real metal toy cars that kids could drive by pedalling them. They were relatively hard to break and were often passed from father to son.  Some of them have survived until our days. Here is a collection of them.

NEVA. Very thin metal and very small in size. However, kids liked that they have a trunk and a hood that they could open.
