Easy Peasy!

Fisher Price EZ Turn Vespa Scooter

(watch the EZ Turn Scooter in action!)

Be sure to watch the video link above. The Fisher-Price EZ Turn Scooter can spin in a complete circle. (That’s doing a doughnut in midwestern parlance.) This toy also works well on carpet or hardwood floors. Measures 20.6 x 10.5 x 13.8 inches and is best for ages 12-36 months. $27 at Amazon.

This summer make your own souvenir!

California Redwoods Scooter Vespa Souvenir

Here’s an example from my fellow scooterist Coady R. of the Slugrockets Scooter Club. They had their first annual “Big Wood” Scooter Rally near where they reside in Humboldt County, California. And yes they rode through hollowed out Redwoods. This paperweight was purchased during the rally and then righteously hacked into a more suitable souvenir.

The Young Ones.

Old Navy Gap Baby Clothes Scooter Vespa Mod Dog

Here are some new scootery baby clothes from both Baby Gap and Old Navy.

First up is a mod number that looks like a top and bottom set but is actually a onesie. It’s 100% cotton and snaps at the shoulder and inseam. Sizes are from newborns to 2 years. It’s $19.95 at Baby Gap.

The pink two-piece dog-centric number is also 100% cotton and is now on sale at Old Navy for $10.00 but only the 18-24 mos. size is left. So hurry!



Felted Scooters

Felted felting Scooters Vespa Crafts

So the Cute Bunnies and Kitties Scooter Club had a craft night recently and we made (or in my case attempted to make) some felted scooters like the pink one Nicole made. ScooterSwag’s regular contributor Cassie was an overachiever. Not only did she make a scooter in about an hour’s time but added a kitty rider made from hair she brushed off her cats and some whiskers she had saved. I was still trying to get a basic scooter shape after about two hours time and sorta added one tire.

Curious what’s involved in felting? Here’s a video showing the basics.

Marx Scooters in Disney Collection

Disney Marx Scooter Vespa Collection Goofy Pluto Donald Duck

Spotted in the Vancouver BC (Canada) airport, these are from a collection of Disneyana on display there. No Mickey scooters unfortunately, but hey we’ve got Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck in the house.

A different kind of summer flip flop.

Solar Powered Flip Flap Flapper Scooter Vespa Mod

This gadget is so ridiculous it just makes me laugh. It’s based on the flip flopping solar powered flowers that you can put in your window if want your house to be more Pee Wee Herman Playhouse-like. Here’s a video if you still can’t picture these things. Be forewarned — watching them is mesmerizing. What I remember from my own childhood were “drinking birds” which were in their own way solar powered too.

In any case, it’s cheap as chips at £4.75. You can order it from Cosmic Gift’s eBay shop here .

Thanks to Blackie of the Woolybacks SC (North Yorkshire) for this find!
