Portland Scooterist Noah E. found this doll for me at a Eugene, Oregon scooter rally while junkin’. (Thanks Noah!) And I decided to make her an honorary member of the Cute Bunnies and Kitties Scooter Club â€” hence the bunny ears. I think these came out about a year before I started this blog. So maybe six years ago? Her remote control which is missing is a miniature matching scooter if you can believe it. And she also came with a shiny black leather jacket and helmet. Another thing of note: Samantha is tall! 13.5″ while seated on the scooter. These are pretty hard to find complete nowadays but you can always do an eBay “Saved Search.”
Thanks to Scooter Stu for this find. Available only in the UK thus far, this baby doll does not have time to wait for you and your stroller. Her scooter is remote controlled and on sale for Â£29.99. Her outfit is Â£19.99 and the doll herself is Â£12.99.
Speaking of babies and scooters, I once heard of a vintage ad that featured a mom riding a scooter with a side car that was more of a stroller with a baby in it! It sounded unspeakably dangerous and I have been looking for it ever since. Anyone know which ad I might be referring to? I think it would make the perfect shower gift all framed up for the nursery.
