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.
“Joe Bar Team” is a French comics series about two wheeled commuters and all the things they encounter just getting around. Of course one of the characters rides a scooter. This model is hand painted, measures approximately 4″ tall and costs 14 Euro.
First up we have a natural fiber pillow with a rustic screen print. You can choose from two different fabrics and the also team it up with other vehicle designs. It measures approximately 16″ X 16″ and is Â£23. Thanks to retrotogo.com for this find.
Choice two is a blue and green French pillow that reverses to a smaller print of the same scooter on the other side. It’s 100% cotton and measures approximately 34 X 24 cm. It costs â‚¬30.
I have always loved vintage waterslides. I have a vague recollection of applying them to my bicycle when I was very small. Gosh that dates me! Anyhoo, here is a prime specimen spotted on eBay recently. If you’d like to wallow in a little more vintage goodness (and some rather randy imagery), click below.
