Not knowing the Dutch language I couldn’t find out much about Bumba other than it seems to be a Belgian children’s show with clay animation characters. But if you Google “Bumba” and “Scooter” there are all kinds of goodies out there.
A new series of shorts premiered in June this year on the Disney Channel and one of them is all scooter. It’s called “Croissant de Triomphe” and the heroic scooter makes the most adorable noises I’ve ever heard come out of any bike . . . animated or real.
Let’s hope that there are more French Mickey Mouse shorts and scooter toys are not far behind.
To check out the background story on the shorts here.
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.
Actually the real flavor is Strawberry Lime. In the lower right hand corner the ID tag reads: “Liz Ruetsch; #1331039; Windsor, CA.” I’m assuming that means Windsor, California although the bottle also reads “Product of Canada” near its neck.
Thanks to James M. for this great find and photo. He spotted these at his local Meijer store which is a grocery outlet chain in the Great Lakes region.
Of course you can also order Jones Soda with your own custom label. Find out more here.
