This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag: Miniature motorcycles and one fenderlight Vespa!


I found this on eBay years ago. I can’t remember what I was looking for – probably “Vespa toy.” It’s charming how detailed the bikes are with their illustrated backgrounds of roads and mailboxes. I remember seeing toys like this in the toy aisles of grocery stores and drug stores growing up. I rather miss the flimsy blister packs and the bits of improperly molded plastic and this ubiquitous statement: “Made in Hong Kong.” (Oops. Showing my age!)
