I didn't get around to taking my niece and nephew to Macy's at Lenox Square to ride The Pink Pig. When my sister and I were children this ride was housed at the now-closed downtown Rich's department store. From poking around the interweb, I've learned that The Pink Pig debuted in 1953. My favorite two memories of it are watching my Uncle Mick attempt to squeeze into it with us and seeing my younger sister freak out when charged by a live turkey! I no longer have my "I rode the pink pig" sticker, but I wouldn't be surprised if mom has one stored away in a scrapbook somewhere in the attic.
