We Want To Give Your Child Their First Car…

Red 65 Mustang Pedal Car

We’ve got a Red ’65 Mustang Pedal Car just waiting to be signed over to a lucky preschooler.

Some of you may not know that Susan and I, along with our mom Joan, have two online stores, www.pedalcarsandretro.com and www.a-rocking-horse-to-love.com. Our experience as work-at-home moms – and living through how tough it is to make it all work – is the inspiration behind 5 Minutes for Mom. It is why 5 Minutes for Mom is committed to bringing mom-entrepreneurs exposure and credit for the amazing work they do.

Today we are offering from our store, Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles, one of our favorite pedal cars. This AMF Mustang Pedal Car design is completely authentic and has been re-manufactured using the original AMF tooling.

It is identical in every way to the original ’65 Mustang Pedal Car. It is an incredibly popular pedal car and we are giving it away to one of you!

This car is CHILD SAFETY TESTED and APPROVED and conforms to ASTM F963 Federal safety requirements.

If you have a toddler or preschooler who’d love to hit the road in this sweet set of wheels, simply follow these two steps:

  1. Publish a post on your own blog linking back to this giveaway post and also linking to our store Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles If you can also link to our pedal cars page that would be wonderful. We really do appreciate the links to both this post and to our store.
  2. Leave a comment on this post.

If you don’t have a blog, we understand you can’t link back, but then please spread the word amongst your friends.

We are sorry to say we must limit shipping to US addresses. So Canadians, if you live close enough to the border to pick your prize or purchase up on the US side, then you can still enter. It’s incredibly simple to set this up. We help Canadians do it every day.

Good Luck!

    What a cool car. My son loves cars and trucks. Now he can be like his uncle Scott if he wins! He has a real ’66 Chevy impala that has been pretty much restored…gotta love kid versions of adult toys!

  2. heather says

    I have a boy who LOVES loves loves cars! he would probably faint if he saw it in our garage for him to play with! How fun it would be to win!

  3. says

    OOOoo, what a wonderful time for me to be planning a post about 5M4M!!! Since Kailani was kind enough to link to my “Superlicious Super Dishes” Carnival and cookbook give-away, I was working on a post to “honor” y’all.

    This car is amazingly cool…it would’ve been a childhood dream. My kids are a bit too old for this now (a few of them might argue that, lol), but I have some special nephews/nieces who would LOVE it!!

  4. Wanda says

    What a great car! I think my husband would try to take it from our daughter if we won. She would be the hit of the neighborhood in the red pony!

  5. brandy w says

    please we bought my 3 year old a tricycle and now my 20 month old is fighting her for it. this would be perfect for either one of them. the fighting will stop

  6. Sarah VM says

  8. Amanda says

    What an incredible and generous prize – I think all 3 of my boys (dad included) would fall in love at first sight – talk about the envy of the neighborhood!!!

  9. says

    yea, baby! This is the coolest! I loved playing on my sister’s pedal tractor and our cars when we were kids.. we thought we were going at lightning speed… Mom even painted stripes, railroad tracks and stop signs on our driveway to help the flow of traffic! With 4 kids and lots of friends always coming over there was a rush hour on our long driveway!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win the pedal car!

  10. ~Lana B.~ says

    Oh this is too cool!! My 2yr old DD is totally in LOVE w/ cars. This would be perfect for this coming summer for her!

  18. Jill Rivera says

    My husband had a car like this when he was little. I would love for him to have another. I am also looking for the football game that vibrated. That is the other toy I am looking for him.

    Our son would love this!
    I posted on my blog & linked to this site & both of your stores.

    My great-grandson loves to imitate his dad. I believe we would have a hard time getting him out of the car (if we won it, of course). I would love to give him this car. Thank you for the opportunity to win this.

  25. Jenny M says

    My sister in law is thinkign of starting a blog just so she can get another chance at your contest after I sent her the link- this is our dream car!

    I also said a “thank you” for Kailani including my “Snackalicious Super Dishes” Carnival on her “5 Minutes” column…Y’ALL ROCK!!


  27. Christine Saulter says

    This is my son’s DREAM car! He keeps telling us about a dream with a red talking car that he can drive! I don’t know about the talking part (I guess he’ll have to do that himself), but it is red, shiny, beautiful — and it will be fast with our kid power!
