An educational book with a scooter on it? I’m so on it! Just $22.79 at Amazon:
“Renowned author and journalist Sheila McLeod Arnopoulos uses her talent for investigative reporting to take us deep into the poorest villages in India. Yet, far from being passive victims of their circumstances, the women who live there-often illiterate, yet possessing outstanding leadership skills-have joined forces and are making astute use of microcredit to break the cycle of poverty. Microcredit was launched by Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus (for which he won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize), and consists of very small loans made primarily to women for the production of essential commodities or to start small businesses. Based on a number of trips to India between 2001 and 2008, Arnopoulos shows her sense of solidarity and desire for authenticity by sharing the daily life of these villagers of all different ages. However, the first-person account of her extensive travels-on foot, in a rickshaw, by bus or train-focuses primarily on these women’s inspiring success stories.”

Found in a Dollar Store a few years ago, this little play set has an unusual combination of items â€” but if you want the perfect mod doll with a cleaning OCD â€” this may be it.
Thanks to Glen B. for this find!

Spotted on eBay recently. I believe this is like a mobile music box! Cassie gave me one of these but it no longer plays a tune.

Geoff Rowley is a famous (and cute!) UK skateboarder who has developed several mod designs for his boards in his Flip! line. This one’s a couple years old so may be hard to come by. Thanks to Scoot Magazine for the photos.
(Yes April, I’m that far behind in my reading ; )
American Greetings has a new scooter card with a neat twist – each comes with a special code good for one song download from iTunes. So rather than get blasted by a sound chip when you open the card, you can blast whatever you want at a time of your choosing. Hurry though, apparently these are only available until September 20!
Thanks to Karla R. for this find.
