Start a girl-only scooter club.

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Santa on a Snow Scooter

Some will decry my posting of this toy as it’s not technically a scooter scooter but it’s so weird and wacky I couldn’t resist. Battery operated and made in Japan, these can be found on eBay and usually go for $100 or more depending on condition.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

PS: Here is a similar toy featuring Snoopy as an astronaut:

Watch Snoopy Ride!

To counteract Thanksgiving boredom?
A new/old paper scooter model

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (Yes, that goes doubly for those of you outside of the States.)

I am about to go in and tackle some asparagus but before I do, I thought I’d post this neat little craft for you in case you have some time on your hands. Besides, unlike some of the other paper models I’ve posted, this one is dead easy! I think you could almost turn it into a greeting card.

For the full-sized version to print out, please visit this link.

Thanks to Dave ThCap’n for this find!

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Bradford Exchange Lambretta Cuckoo Clock

Where to even begin with this one? We’ve featured other Bradford Exchange Limited Edition Lambretta collectibles here before including, of all things, a Faberge-type musical egg (?!?) but this clock beats all for outrageous swagitude. Alas, it doesn’t appear to be available at the Bradford Exchange site anymore. But if you want one, prepare to pay at least £125 for one.

New Starbucks Italian Roast Mug

Yay! More scooter swag from Starbucks. This very attractive mug is now available in some stores and online for $8.95. By the way, the photo pictures above is much truer to the actual colors of the mug than the photo online. I know because I bought a mug the same day Julie sent me this photo. ; )

Thanks to Julie G. for the photo and this find!

Calling all Scooter Nerds (and their bairn)!

Target should just get it over with and change their red and white logo to the mod rondelle. They consistently have lots of mod themed and scooter stuff in every aisle of their wonderful store.

The latest proof: The Harajuku Mini clothing and accessories collection. The scooter — with training wheels! — makes appearences throughout the “Nerds” theme of this line. Designed by Gwen Stefani who had the same designs in adult sizes back in 2008 and covered in this post here.

The sizes for this clothing are a wee bit smaller, fitting newborns and toddlers. Prices are very reasonable with $19 for the coveralls and $13 for the shirt shown here. Stores will no doubt carry other styles, sizes and even school supplies with this design so explore your local Target soon!

Last but not least, here’s a link to the cute Harajuku TV commercial now running. No scooter in it, but still worth a look:
