Electric Pony Bucks and Trots (Jan, 1932)

I wonder if they installed it outside the Piggly Wiggly.

Electric Pony Bucks and Trots
A NEW entertainment device which holds lots of fun for the youngsters is an electrical pony invented by Otto Hahs, a mechanic of Sikeston, Mo. The pony is operated by electricity and is set in motion by depositing a nickel in a slot in the neck of the beast. The pony lopes, trots and bucks, the rider regulating the gait with the bridle reins, to suit his tastes.

    I’m looking for parts for electric ponies. I have several and want to refurbish them.

    Jim- people like you make the world go ’round. I used to LOVE the nickle ponies, and especially remember one outside Woolworths’s in Sudbury. Best of luck!
