"As we lived in a a flat my dinky, scooter and bicycle with training wheels lived at Nana's. I spent many happy Sundays tootling up and down the garden path and the footpath in my vehicles."
That quote from a recent post of mine resulted in a question from one of my readers, Kylie. "What's a dinky, Jill?" I responded "A very small tricycle for pre-schoolers. I have a picture of my daughter on her Cyclops dinky. A Google image search for Cyclops Dinky will bring up some pictures."
As a picture is sometimes worth a thousand words I thought I should dig through the family album to find a dinky picture. I couldn't find the one with my daughter so I am posting this picture from 1977 of one of my boys on his dinky.
A Google search for the meaning of the word dinky tells me that is has several different meanings today. I wonder if that is why Kylie posed her question.
