Bicycle toys

It seems to me that bicycle paraphernalia such as models and toys are not that common. So when I spotted this in a thrift store I couldn't pass it up. I don't know anything about it other than it looks home made. But here's the cool part it works just like a real bike, crank the pedals and the chain drives the back wheel. I mean its sturdily built and if I where 20 inches tall I could ride it, not easily, but it could be done.

So do you have any bicycle toys, models or odds and ends that you care to share with us?

I found a european folding tandem at a charity drop off point. An otherwise cheesy bike that had two fold axis to give a Z-shaped collapsed bike. I still kick myself for not locking up the bike I was riding then riding off with the tandem. Then driving back for my bike. When I went back with a motor vehicle it was already gone.
