Only a penny?

Mechanical pony
When I was a kid, riding one of these mechanical ponies was a treat. I’d drop a nickel or a quarter into the slot and spend the next few minutes blissfully imagining that I was riding a real horse. I came across this pony in Cincinnati. I’ve been here for the past five days while my daughter rows in a regatta. A penny seems like a bargain and I find it unbelievable that it’s not in constant use!
