Kurt Adler Snowman Vespa Scooter Christmas Ornament

My goodness. This Kurt Adler Christmas ornament is $65! It’s designed by David Strand. And measures over 6 inches tall. But this ornament is priced like a Radko! Still it is the first snowman on a scooter I’ve run into. Except for this guy. And he’s much too big to hang on a tree.

A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Agent P Scooter Hallmark Christmas Ornament

Agent P Scooter Hallmark Christmas Ornament Phineas and Ferb Disney

Oh this is a big ScooterSwag FAIL. Mea culpa. I always make an effort to go into a Hallmark store before Christmas to see if there are any ornaments featuring scooters. And this past year I didn’t. (Sigh.) So I missed this rather adorable ornament. It doesn’t light up or make noises. But you can still find it for fairly cheap on eBay.

Weeee Wheeee.

Watch Toy Hunter clip here.

This was a fun clip to watch even though I am still not sure why anyone would want a “Tytus.” I am also amazed when companies don’t keep archives of their products, past and present. But it’s a lot more common for them to forget their past in an effort just to keep up with the present. I think all companies need a docent/librarian.
