A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Galt Puzzle

Scooter Vespa Lambretta Puzzle Galt Puzzle Jigsaw Made In England Toy

Spotted on eBay this vintage puzzle is made by Galt, an English toy company. It’s wooden and is amazing 19″ wide. It probably dates from the late 1960s to the early 70s. I love the pictures underneath the puzzle pieces that show what’s inside the vehicles! This puzzle also reminds me of another vintage puzzle we featured awhile back.

Scooter AND doll included!

Well here’s an unusual but cute scooter for Barbie to ride. Not sure how to identify this one but to say it is a little Buck Rogers. And dig that Channel quilted seat! It’s called the “Barbie Glam Scooter.” You can find both Barbie and Teresa (Barbie’s brunette friend) on ToysRUs for under $20.

Thanks to Amy S. for this find!

ScooterBelia Clocks Wall Desk Scooter Vespa Lambretta

Here in the States (well most states) we set our clocks back an hour in that fall. Imagine that. We just “poof” lose an hour. Where does it go? We get it back in the Spring (Spring Back) but I just want my time to stay put. I’m losing it on my own fast enough. In honor of time here are some nice scooter clocks . . . all on one site.The wall clocks (shown here) are £18.50 each and desk clocks are £13.50 at the Scooterbelia site .

Thanks to Richard of the Woolybacks SC for this find.

A real kickstarter!

The Scooter Diaries Ronald Bowman

I came across a Kickstarter campaign on the blog “Mod Scene Weekly” and I want to see this book get made! They have less than two days to meet their goal.

What’s it about? It’s “an epic adventure romance through Latin America on a scooter during a time when such a journey was virtually unheard of.” And I gotta say the romance part sounds great! But just the fantastic photos alone would make this book worth it.

Visit here to learn more and watch the terrific book trailer. And then lay down some dough!
