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 .

Rocko and Spanky Go to a Party (Rocko and Spanky)Rocky

This is very, very cute. Two sock monkeys ride their scooter and sidecar all over town looking for a birthday present. Here’s the description from Amazon:
“In this kids’ book debut by sisters Kara and Jenna Lareau, Rocko and Socko (a funky pair of sock-monkey twins) couldn’t be more excited about buying a gift and dressing up for a big birthday party on Saturday. In a spunky collage of digital photos and kitschy-chic illustrations, the action starts quickly for these simian siblings, who tear off at the beginning of the book in a sidecar-equipped Vespa. But can they agree on what to buy at the Gift-o-Rama? And then there’s deciding on the right party outfits, an equally contentious affair: “What about these boots?” asks Spanky. “Can I pull off the western look?” “Please do,” says Rocko.” But after some good-natured squabbling, the duo is ready to arrive at the party, fully decked out and gift in hand. The only problem: Who’s birthday is it? Could these twins have possibly forgotten their own birthday?”
