HairBolus: When I saw the cars I thought they strangely were trying to depict "Tucker 48"s.

I found the tweet https://mobile.twitter.com/sovietvisuals/status/1572845652244955137
which says USSR 1972.

The Soviet Visuals Facebook discussion says the cars are Moskvich pedal cars that had been repurposed.
Further poking around finds claims that these were made at the same AZLK factory that made the gasoline powered adult Moskvich cars, though I can't find an adult version that looks similar.

This guy has a nice collection of them

[Fark user image image 540x404].

This is my Moskovich pedal car collection . A Petrol blue 1969 generation one In great original condition , A Tangerine 1980 generation two in good original condition, An Apple green 1980 generation two in fair original condition and a Red 1988 generation three in as new original condition.

I presume only high party officials were able to get these cars for their children, so it must have been a real treat for just a citizen to ride in one at an amusement park.


Then one of the designs is a rip off from Studabaker
