1330 Barnes Drive Wooster, Ohio 44691

While exhibiting at many shows all over Ohio, making memories and new friends, I noticed how the little tykes seemed so bored at engine shows.

What can I do, I wondered ? I had an old Maytag engine. I found a hobby horse in a junk pile and I married these to a Heller Aller pump jack from behind the barn and ended up with a crowd pleaser!

The little folks would laugh and bounce around in their wagons and strollers while watching the horse go up and down. To my surprise, even the older folks and the not so old folks really enjoyed the concoction and voiced many compliments.

The joy and laughter of the little ones, though, made it all worthwhile!
