The Big Wheel

Originally released by Marx Toys, the big wheel was famous throughout the 70s and 80s and is still being made by imitators today.  This plastic, low to the ground tri-cycle was designed to be a cooler version of the traditional tricycle that looked sleeker and hotrod like in detail.

In the early 1980s, the Big Wheel brand name, and molds were sold to Empire Plastics, makers of the Power Cycle brand, which was Marx’s biggest competitor.
