I'll be brief: this 1960s-era ride-on tractor from Creative Playthings is awesome, and you should buy it. If you live in or around Eastern Pennsylvania, because apparently, it is too heavy or unwieldy to ship.
And then everyone else should make one. Because, hello, this is molded ply at its awesomest. At one time, an American toy company was making solid wood ride-on toys like this out of basically lumber and wheelbarrow tools. And why don't you? 24" long and 12" high, more detail pics after the jump.
