Garden Gnomes Not Included: Sweet Community Playthings Tractor On eBay


Dayton, Ohio bidders will have the advantage on this awesome, old Community Playthings ride-on tractor. Though it's just under 11 inches high, all that maple lumber and those chunky Firestone tires will cost a bundle to ship.

Maybe when the winner picks it up, he can try negotiating for the kissy little lawn ornaments in person.


The rest of us can just study the configuration carefully, and then spend a weekend in the garage with some two-by and the edge router.

Can I play with it too? Would I fit in those seats? :( Sniff I doubt I would. Now, I'll rightfully hand it over to my son.

My preschool had that when I was little, and when we visited last summer we found it in the church basement just waiting for my kids. And it is every bit as awesome as it looks — and still perfectly solid after all those years of abuse.

[dude, you stole a tractor from a church?? -ed.]

Heh. No, we left it.
