Here’s a vintage 2-part hand-tinted postcard for you!
It seems like no more than a month or two passes before I discover another kid’s show featuring scooters. This time it’s an Italian show even though it looks like it came straight from the shores of Japan.
Here’s a description of what the “Winx Club” is all about according to Wikipedia:
“Winx Club is an action and fantasy show combined with comedic elements. In the mystical dimension of Magix, three special schools educate modern fairies, ambitious witches and supernatural warriors, and wizards from all over the magical universe.”
Oh and Bloom (the main character) rides a scooter.
You can get Bloom doll with her bright pink scooter for $20 on the ToysRUS site. The puzzle was featured in a recent eBay auction and is harder to find.
Watch the TV Commercial for the Bloom Scooter Doll in some language that is definitely not Italian.
Here’s a Hello Kitty that won’t break the bank. She’s just $9.99. No batteries required. And just look at those pink bow wheel forks! She and her scooter measures 8.7 x 8.3 x 3.9 (in inches)
You can order her on the ToysRUs site.
Here’s a toy that may only be available at Target. It’s the Hello Kitty Chasing Rainbows scooter and it’s a simple push toy for their 12″ dolls. No batteries, no friction power, just fun. It measures approximately 8″ tall and almost 15″ long. It even comes with a little purse.
You can find it at Target for $25 .

There’s more than one superhero out there with a fondness for scooters. Beast Boy is NUTSO for “mopeds.” Should we break it to him that his is definitely a scooter?
This figurine was a recent find of Daniel S. in Texas. (Thanks Daniel!) I went through the ScooterSwag archives and found this Beast Boy toy set that we posted back in 2007 .
I was also able to dig up this episode where Beast Boy and friends are captured by the “Mad Mod.” MM was a villain from the 60s brought back to torment the Teen Titans just for this episode. Maybe there are some Mad Mod Scooter toys out there. Enjoy!
Not sure exactly what kind of scooters those are but as this is the first toy I’ve ever seen with a scooter trailer does it matter? It may still be available at Etsy for $25.
Thanks to Julie G. for this find!
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!
(watch the EZ Turn Scooter in action!)
Be sure to watch the video link above. The Fisher-Price EZ Turn Scooter can spin in a complete circle. (That’s doing a doughnut in midwestern parlance.) This toy also works well on carpet or hardwood floors. Measures 20.6 x 10.5 x 13.8 inches and is best for ages 12-36 months. $27 at Amazon.
Thanks to Julie G for this find!
Spotted in the Vancouver BC (Canada) airport, these are from a collection of Disneyana on display there. No Mickey scooters unfortunately, but hey we’ve got Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck in the house.
