 Dear Donna,

I bought this four years ago at a yard sale. The woman told me it was her mother’s grandmother’s.
Could you please tell me what it is worth?
Paul from Allenstown 
 
Dear Paul,
Your Gym-Dandy Buddy Buggy is awesome. It was made by The Universal Manufacturing Co. in Louisiana in the late 1950s or early 1960s. It is considered a pedal tricycle and can have an added cart with it as well.
I did some research for you and found them anywhere from $250 to $500 depending on the condition and whether it has a cart. One fun piece of information is that Art Linkletter endorsed these as classics. I hope you know who he is. Or maybe I am dating myself!
I hope you got a great deal and find a great home for it if that is what you want to do with it. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful item.
