We saw the Wiener Mobile


I’m always eager to get out of the house and site see. My daughter is the same way. All I have to say is, “go get your shoes” and a few minutes later she has a bucket full of toys and her socks and shoes in hand, smiling and ready to go.

Yesterday, as I was checking my Facebook messages, I happened to notice a picture of the Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile. I had seen it when I was working in Colorado, quite a few years ago, and I thought it was neat. I had also gotten a wiener whistle too; the big kid in me. Now that I have a child I thought it would be something that I could take her to go see and share the excitement with. It took the both of us ten minutes to get ready and out the door…honestly, why can’t every morning be like that?

As we were walking up to the Wiener Mobile my inner child was beaming and my daughter kept saying, “Wow! Cool!” There was a small crowd of people, which I was happy about. A kind lady took our picture standing in front of the giant wiener on wheels and then I took my daughter inside it to have a look around. This was actually the first time I’ve been inside it and it’s more or less like a big car with plush seats that sits eight or ten…I didn’t get a good seat count.

We didn’t spend too much time looking around inside, but I did manage to get my lil girl a whistle. She’s still trying to figure out how to blow it…she’s three. All in all we enjoyed getting to see an icon and it’ll be something that I can share with her later. Maybe we’ll get to see it again later down the road.

A little history:

Tough the company started in 1883, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile started in 1936. The first wiener whistle came out in 1952. In 1958 they added a free wiener whistle in their package of hot dogs.
