Wouldn’t it be fun to be the person who designs the coin-operated Kiddie Rides that you sometimes still see out front of suburban grocery stores and strip malls? They aren’t as easy to find now as they were when I was a kid back in the stone age, but I still enjoy documenting them whenever see one. Because, nostalgia.

This kinetic likeness of Dino, beloved pet dinosaur / dog from The Flintstones was spotted on Vancouver’s Granville Island, inside the kids’ toy shops emporium.  Manufactured by Just Kiddie Rides Inc., you can see a video of Dino in action at This Link!
