Day 450


March 24th, 2013

At long last, and after two close calls, I have finally seen a kid riding one of these mechano-musical sidewalk monsters.


  1. Aussie says:

    Well done Matt! Perserverance pays off!!!!

  2. Gigi says:

    Woohoo! Told you third time’s the charm :) and you took a video for posterity .. cool!

    These USED to be very popular and this one is relatively small compared to some of the larger ones they’ve made over the years. The coin-op business died a slow death unfortunately and these cheap thrills for the kids were brought down with the rest of the coin-op machinery. The horses were by far the most popular of these “mechano-musical sidewalk monsters” as Matt so eloquently referred to them. Ride ’em cowboy!
