As a kid, my favorite mode of transportation my driveway was my plastic blue and yellow Big Wheel. The Big Wheel even let you do things like spin it out very fast and go the opposite way very fast.
These were cool to have. Even though they were made of plastic, they stood up pretty well. The front wheel seemed to get damaged first (the Big Wheels that I had would crack along the seam and slowly become flat spotted).
I wore out at least 3 myself—pedaling until the plastic tires were so flat they no longer worked.
I have often wished for a grown-up size version Big Wheel. No other toy offered as much speed or even freedom.
