Throwback Thursday: 1946 Clipper

We’ve written before about the longevity of a Folbot. About how your Folbot will not only last your lifetime, but can also be enjoyed for generations!

For this Throwback Thursday, we give you the story of a Folbot Clipper. Bought in 1946, it was enjoyed by the original owners for many years. Not only does their son have fond memories of growing up with the Clipper, it’s now being enjoyed by new generation(s), creating new memories!
