SUNSHINE FAMILY CYCLE
This Sunshine Family Surrey #7237 was made for the Sunshine Family in 1974. It measures approximately 13” long by 10” tall, has plastic bicycle parts and a cardboard canopy and basket. It belonged to our two daughters who took very good care of their toys. The detail on the handle grips, pedals, gears and chains as well as the tires is impressive.
The cycle is in good condition but the front wheel doesn’t turn freely as the back wheels do, and the handlebars do not steer the front wheel. There is an approximate ½” crack on the front head tube which we tried to capture in a photo. In the same photograph you can see a separation on one side of the fork.
The canopy and basket show some age, although there are no tears or major creases. They are just not as stiff and clean as they were when they were new. Because of the properties of cardboard, the canopy is slightly warped and the inside of the basket isn’t as bright and clean. This surrey can be used for display purposes, but we suggest not for heavy play.
We will include the Sunshine Family Idea booklet of craft projects that came with the surrey. Our daughters spent many hours playing with the Sunshine Family Craft Store, Camper and Surrey. They made every project in the accompanying booklets. However, this booklet is still in remarkable condition with light wear.
This intriguing surrey would be wonderful addition to display your Sunshine Family.
