Idea: Scooter Tire (or Tyre) Bar Stools!



Crystal Walters ( posted these seats on her blog I immediately thought of barstools (I photoshop-ped a sample) and how cool it would be to have these in your bar basement or garage. Can’t imagine they would be that hard to make. Here’s a link to the original inspiration:

Little People

I actually miss the old skool Fisher Price Little People. The new ones just don’t have the peg-gy charm of the originals. I had a barn and an airport. The barn door went “Mooooooo” when you opened it. That never got old. And the airport was beyond rad:


But I have to say this Little People toy is extremely, almost painfully cute:



“It’s party time and Sarah Lynn is riding on her scooter to get there! Sarah Lynn is ready to go with her doggie pal in the side car – complete with helmets and goggles for both! Oh…don’t forget the present and the balloons, which Sarah Lynn can actually hold in her hand! Ideal for growing toddlers, the playset encourages imaginative play and social play.”

Toddlers, smoddlers. I know a lot of scooterists over the age of 3 who will want one of these.

Radio Flyer makes a lot more than wagons!


Thanks to Crystal Waters for this find. (I stole it off her blog As much as I loved my Big Wheel, this tricycle definitely kicks its ass. The “Radio Flyer Girl’s Classic Lights & Sounds Tricycle” has blinking turn signals, plays music (!) and has a horn that really honks. There’s even storage under the seat. Oh, and it looks like a scooter. A pink scooter. Eeeeeeeee! (Sound of my five-year-old-head exploding.)

Scoot Pink! (You know you want to)


Thanks to Julie G for finding this blog. I knew Crystal Waters made scooter seat covers (see link on top right) but I didn’t know about her love of all things pink – especially when it comes to scooters. Her blog “Scoot Pink” is chock full of great finds and some fun posts. I found more than a few things out there in Scooterswagdom that I knew nothing about:

I am an aunt!


So I’m at the Rite Aid drugstore on Tuesday and notice this American Greetings card. Cute, but I don’t have a niece. And then I think, “Oh, wait! Yes I do! She was born this morning!” Cool timing, eh? I think I’ll save it until she turns 10 and tell her that I bought it the day she was born.

“You’re classy, sassy, spunky and cool –
And since it’s your birthday, girl, you rule!
Have a great day”

Introducing "Swag From Around The World!"

We’re going to try a new feature here at ScooterSwag that will charm some and irritate others. “Charm” because they can see bits of swag that they would normally not get to see. “Irritate” because unless they’re international jet-setters they won’t be able to buy it. But a little international joie de vivre never hurt anyone . . . especially Americans who make up the majority of this list.

I received an e-mail from Nadia who lives in the South of France in Menton. She rides a red Vespa. I decided to look up Menton to see what it looked like. Turns out it’s on the French Riviera:


I know, right? I can almost feel the warm breeze on my skin as I ride my scooter near the shore
. . . sigh.

But on to the Swag. She wanted to share this notebook cover she recently found:


Thanks Nadia! I will be thinking of you riding your red scooter as the rains have already come to Portland and we will be socked in for the next four to five months.

If you’d like to share some Swag of your own, please e-mail us a and we’ll post them. Also tell us a little about where you live. I’m especially anxious to hear from some Brits as I know for a fact they have a motherload of swag across the pond.
