A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol

Scooby Doo Ska Rude Boy Vespa Lambretta Mod Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol Scooter Toy

Have you been good girls and boys over the summer? Well here’s a cartoon and a toy for you. The cartoon is called “Rude Boy Lives” and is from the new Scooby Doo series “Mystery Incorporated.” It actually features ska loving scooter riding skeletons chasing down the usual suspects. It’s a-mah-zing. The toy is called the “Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol” and features a scooterish object to help Shaggy capture ghosties. It came out a few years ago so it’s not impossible to find.

Thanks to Joe B. for this find!

This summer make your own souvenir!

California Redwoods Scooter Vespa Souvenir

Here’s an example from my fellow scooterist Coady R. of the Slugrockets Scooter Club. They had their first annual “Big Wood” Scooter Rally near where they reside in Humboldt County, California. And yes they rode through hollowed out Redwoods. This paperweight was purchased during the rally and then righteously hacked into a more suitable souvenir.

Felted Scooters

Felted felting Scooters Vespa Crafts

So the Cute Bunnies and Kitties Scooter Club had a craft night recently and we made (or in my case attempted to make) some felted scooters like the pink one Nicole made. ScooterSwag’s regular contributor Cassie was an overachiever. Not only did she make a scooter in about an hour’s time but added a kitty rider made from hair she brushed off her cats and some whiskers she had saved. I was still trying to get a basic scooter shape after about two hours time and sorta added one tire.

Curious what’s involved in felting? Here’s a video showing the basics.
