Scooter Santas for us Yanks.

Remember this great ornament that I thought was only available in the UK? Well it turns out if you live in the US and are lucky enough to have a Garden Ridge store near you, you can walk in and buy this ornament for just $5.99! That is of course if fellow swaggers haven’t already beaten you to it. ; ) Now don’t pout if there isn’t a store near you. This scooter santa can be still found on eBay in different color combinations for a bit more.

Thanks to Dixie K. for this photo and stealthy find.

Find Garden Ridge store near you.

No red noses but red smiles.

OMG am I excited about this find! Finally! A scooter yard inflatable! Even better – a scooter yard inflatable with SOCK MONKEYS! And a sidecar! That lights up! Wish I had found this a little earlier in the season. But it’s definitely not too late for the 2012 season. And it’s on sale. I have seen this offered for everything from $80 to $228 on the web but $85 seems to be the going rate.

Here are the details. Dimensions: 2.99″ H x 62.2″ W x 47.24″ D, lights up, weather resistant and includes everything needed for set-up.

These inflatables are more than a little reminiscent of scooter riding sock monkey’s Rocko & Spanky. To read more about them and other sock monkeys, visit our past posts here .

Musical Santa Scooter Found!

Do you need a figurine of Santa Claus delivering prezzies on a red Vespa that plays 8 different Christmas favorites? That’s for you to decide. Oh did I mention there are fur accents and the headlight lights up? We featured this guy back earlier this year in “Rare Swag” but now I have found two sources: Amazon and “The Alpine Christmas Outlet” which offer him up anywhere from $69.99 on Amazon to $75.95 with free shipping at Alpine.

Dimensions: 10.5″H x 10.5″W x 4.5″D

True snow birds.

Ordering the flamingo from the previous post? Hold on. Here’s another ornament you may have to have:

Like cats on scooters, penguins on scooters seem to be a common theme and we’ve featured quite a few of them in the past.

Here are two more riding a modern Vespa. They’re resin and measure 4″ x 3″. The price is $11.99.

Christmas in July & A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Scooter Santa Ceramic Ornament

Spotted on eBay! I have been unable to find out much about this adorable little guy — gleefully bearing a candy cane. I do know this: I want one. And that means we here at ScooterSwag will be keeping our eyes peeled. You’ll be the first to know if I find a source.

Christmas in July & A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Space Santa

Here’s another Santa I spotted on eBay. Sadly I was outbid. And this is one I would quietly kill for. I mean, com’on! This is Space Santa! He’s riding a freakin’ space Heinkel! And he’s packing a ray gun! The good news is that this does not appear to be a vintage ornament.
Hopefully more details to follow soon . . .

Christmas in July:
Scooter Kitty Ornament

How about an Indonesian scooter cat for your tree? It’s made of hand-painted Albesia wood. It measures 3.5″ L X 3.5″ H and is only $10. And by the way, there’s another scooter ornament on this site that we posted about last year.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

A Scooter Santa Music Box?

These sometimes show up on eBay. Don’t have any information on manufacturer or where to buy online. The description reads that it’s a resin figure with a music box measuring 10.5″H 10.5″W 4.5″D. Heck, I don’t even know what song it plays. If anyone else out there knows more, please fill us in!
