Guys and Dolls Trick Baby Carriage

    In the opening number of Guys and Dolls (Runyonland) it mentions two characters that enter with a Paper Doll vehicle that converts into a baby carriage when the policeman shows up. I am having trouble locating a vintage baby carriage that isn't very expensive. I have checked local thrift and antique stores but nothing I can afford. If you have done Guys and Dolls can you give me suggestions of how you did this?

    THANKS!!

    We used wheels from a flower cart and then I had a group of students design and make one. It's only onstage for a short period of time.
