Whoa…that’s one sweet ride! Vroom….Vroom! This vintage Wyanotte Toys convertible wind-up roadster is fully loaded and just revving to get out on the road. All Metal Products Company, founded in 1920, produced inexpensive pressed metal toys under the Wyandotte Toys brand name. This classic roadster not only rolls along when its key is wound, but also features a working convertible roof!
Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: Where would you go on a road trip? What kinds of things do you think you would see?
We're all about learning through play.
Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
