Description: In 1961 Fisher-Price introduced the #161 Creative Block Wagon, a rectangular wagon that holds plastic blocks and wooden dowels. By 1964, Fisher-Price took the idea a little bit further and added a seat for children to sit on and a hinged steering column with a wheel to hold or to pull the toy with. The steering wheel has a horn that goes "beep-beep" when pushed. Just like the wagon, the Creative Coaster was sold with plastic teethable blocks with holes in the center and dowels that fit through the holes in the blocks.
Accessories:
  • Rectangular wooden ride-on wagon with a raised seat and an adjustable front bumper to tilt the steering wheel (steering wheel is removable). *See "Variations" below.
  • FPT8537 - Yellow 14" long steering column with a white plastic steering wheel on one end. The steering wheel has a red rubber horn in the center that goes "beep-beep" when pressed.
