Minnie’s a mod.

This is almost too cute. She even has a kitty riding cupcake! She’s got a BOW helmet (but of course) and a very stylish riding jacket which I wouldn’t mind owning. The measurements are 2″ X 4.2″ x 2.5″ and the set is $34.80 on Amazon. For Disney fans and scooter fans a must have.

“Madagascar 3” Scooter Toys where are you?

Fingers crossed folks. “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted comes out June 8, 2012 and features a whole lotta scooters. Hopefully we won’t get cheated like we did with “Ratatouille” and it’s sad lack of scooter toys. Are you listening Disney?

Thanks to Tom C. for this heads-up!

The Angel on the Red Scooter

More Honda goodness and also a story that will hopefully warm your heart. From the cover:

“She is just an ordinary woman riding her red scooter in the aftermath of one of the worst hurricanes in the history of southern Louisiana. The hurricane was named Katrina. This woman was asked, purely by chance, to take a stand and help when there was no one there to help the people of her city. The city was flooded and nearly destroyed by the hurricane. In her days of riding around the city on her red scooter, she helped in her own way. When you read her story, it will be up to you, the readers, to believe or not to believe God’s presence and guiding hand over her actions. You will judge whether it was coincidence or the Will of God for her to be at that place in time at that time in her life!”

If anyone has read this book, I’d love to know what you thought. It’s retailing for $20.98 on Amazon.

Jonathan Adler loves scooters.

I’ve been a longtime fan of Jonathan Adler for his pervasive love of all things retro and kitsch. But he hadn’t produced a single bit of scootery until just recently. Get ready to empty your wallets folks, because his style ain’t cheap. The Positano needlepoint pillow is $98, the Jet Set Duchess totes are $178 and the Vespa Jute Pouch is $38. Sigh. I need a sugar daddy.

On Sale! Personalized Pottery Barn Doll Scooter

Originally $59, this cute painted wood scooter is now on sale for $39. Doll and matching helmet are not included. I think a teddy bear would look particularly cute riding this. The scooter measures 11.5″ wide x 20″ long x 12″ high and is designed to fit the Pottery Barn dolls or dolls and stuffed animals that measure approximately 18″ tall. Oh and you can personalize the scooter with a name for just $7.


This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Go Bot Scooter

Oh look! Another Honda scooter. (Alex – are you paying attention? ; ) This is a little robot that turns into a scooter. Which I think is so much cooler than turning into a Freightliner truck like the more well-known Transformers. To see a video of this toy in action, click here.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!
