Here’s a toy that may only be available at Target. It’s the Hello Kitty Chasing Rainbows scooter and it’s a simple push toy for their 12″ dolls. No batteries, no friction power, just fun. It measures approximately 8″ tall and almost 15″ long. It even comes with a little purse.
There’s more than one superhero out there with a fondness for scooters. Beast Boy is NUTSO for “mopeds.” Should we break it to him that his is definitely a scooter?
This figurine was a recent find of Daniel S. in Texas. (Thanks Daniel!) I went through the ScooterSwag archives and found this Beast Boy toy set that we posted back in 2007 .
I was also able to dig up this episode where Beast Boy and friends are captured by the “Mad Mod.” MM was a villain from the 60s brought back to torment the Teen Titans just for this episode. Maybe there are some Mad Mod Scooter toys out there. Enjoy!
We’ve featured a figurine of the character Dead Pool on ScooterSwag before. These however are custom made one-off figurines made by hobbists/artists. Does anyone know if the gas masked fellow is based on any comic book character?

Hooray! The Christmas Scooter inflatables are here! In fact we’ve only ever featured one inflatable here before at ScooterSwag. They were these scooter riding sock monkeys . But now we have Snoppy and a snowman (and penguin). The photo of the Snoopy was shot at a Lowe’s Home Improvement store but you can also order him for $89 online here .
The much larger snowman is available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $120 here.
I’d be the first to admit I’ve made fun of the craft site Etsy and loved calling it “Regretsy.” But I gotta give them credit. There is a lot of great stuff on there and it keeps getting better. I’ve even ordered from them. So type in “scooter” or “Vespa” or “Lambretta” and see what comes up for you.
Julie spotted this little paper scooter kit in Japantown in San Francisco during their 20th Anniversary Classic scooter rally. It seems pretty hard to find on anything other than a Japanese web site but this online store has the best price. Have no idea how much shipping would be? It measures approximately 15 x 10.5 x 0.3 cm and is made out of hard paste color laser-cut cardboard.
