As we celebrate the running of the 142nd Preakness, we also honor another special date for a local business!
Joseph’s Department Store in historic, downtown Havre de Grace celebrated their 80th year in business. As they prepared for their celebration, Bahoukas was lucky enough to get some awesome riding toys.
This beautiful red scooter is in wonderful condition, never used. It’s from Radio Line and the 1950s.
This Mercury blue tricycle by Murray is a 1950s collectible in excellent condition.
We showed you the stuffed horse and jockey in a previous post. But check the amazing
stuffed animal that sits on the tricycle, also in mint condition. You must know a young
child who would absolutely LOVE either of these riding toys!
No better way to enjoy the summer sand than with a bucket and a shovel!
Whether it’s your back yard sandbox, a little garden spot, or the sunny beach,
these cute and collectible, metal, Donald Duck, Disney-Character buckets and shovels
make a perfect toy. A little rust due to age, but otherwise in excellent condition.
A tiny one (maybe holds a couple cups) and a larger one – probably a quart size.
Made at the Ohio Art Company in Bryan, Ohio
These original items are from 1938.
Proudly made in the USA

Did you know…
Barbie has become a cultural icon and has been given honors that are rare in the toy world. In 1974, a section of Times Square in New York City was renamed Barbie Boulevard for a week. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris at the Louvre held a Barbie exhibit in 2016. The exhibit featured 700 Barbie dolls over two floors as well as works by contemporary artists and documents (newspapers, photos, video) that contextualize Barbie. … from Wikipedia

The winter sled with runners that we are familiar with today was made popular in 1889 as a Flexible Flyer!
We have several wooden sleds available at Bahoukas, including a slightly older one that is not pictured here. These are great to use and perfect for decorating with. Do you know the history of sleds? They started round the time of the pyramids. Since then, they’ve become quite sophisticated. Check out this Popular Mechanics slideshow. You’ll appreciate sleds even more!
