If you have the world’s steadiest hands and a butt load of patience you could be the proud owner of your own very crafted from a kit set of Vespa Primavera SMALL FRAMES. The kit is Japanese and so hard to find outside of Asia but it can be had on Amazon for just over $40:
It seems like no more than a month or two passes before I discover another kid’s show featuring scooters. This time it’s an Italian show even though it looks like it came straight from the shores of Japan.
Here’s a description of what the “Winx Club” is all about according to Wikipedia:
“Winx Club is an action and fantasy show combined with comedic elements. In the mystical dimension of Magix, three special schools educate modern fairies, ambitious witches and supernatural warriors, and wizards from all over the magical universe.”
Oh and Bloom (the main character) rides a scooter.
You can get Bloom doll with her bright pink scooter for $20 on the ToysRUS site. The puzzle was featured in a recent eBay auction and is harder to find.
Here’s a Hello Kitty that won’t break the bank. She’s just $9.99. No batteries required. And just look at those pink bow wheel forks! She and her scooter measures 8.7 x 8.3 x 3.9 (in inches)
You can order her on the ToysRUs site.
There’s more than one superhero out there with a fondness for scooters. Beast Boy is NUTSO for “mopeds.” Should we break it to him that his is definitely a scooter?
This figurine was a recent find of Daniel S. in Texas. (Thanks Daniel!) I went through the ScooterSwag archives and found this Beast Boy toy set that we posted back in 2007 .
I was also able to dig up this episode where Beast Boy and friends are captured by the “Mad Mod.” MM was a villain from the 60s brought back to torment the Teen Titans just for this episode. Maybe there are some Mad Mod Scooter toys out there. Enjoy!
We’ve featured a figurine of the character Dead Pool on ScooterSwag before. These however are custom made one-off figurines made by hobbists/artists. Does anyone know if the gas masked fellow is based on any comic book character?

Thanks to Daniel S. in Texas for these finds!
Julie spotted this little paper scooter kit in Japantown in San Francisco during their 20th Anniversary Classic scooter rally. It seems pretty hard to find on anything other than a Japanese web site but this online store has the best price. Have no idea how much shipping would be? It measures approximately 15 x 10.5 x 0.3 cm and is made out of hard paste color laser-cut cardboard.
Thanks to Julie G. for the photo and find!
Not sure exactly what kind of scooters those are but as this is the first toy I’ve ever seen with a scooter trailer does it matter? It may still be available at Etsy for $25.
Thanks to Julie G. for this find!
Here’s a shiny silver scooter that shouldn’t ever give you problems. Unless you drop it on your foot. Measures approximately W 14 x D 27 x H 20 cm. It’s Â£29.90. Not bad for a bit of modern art.
Thanks to Hannes for this find.
“Joe Bar Team” is a French comics series about two wheeled commuters and all the things they encounter just getting around. Of course one of the characters rides a scooter. This model is hand painted, measures approximately 4″ tall and costs 14 Euro.
Thanks to Cassie for this find!
