Thanks to Julie G. for this find!
Mattel released a press release recently introducing a whole new line of GI Joe dolls meant to portray the well-known character “outside of combat.” What caught my eye was the faithfully portrayed vintage Vespa scooter for Joe to ride. Clearly Ken will have to step up his game if he wants to keep Barbie. To see the complete line, click here.
My goodness. This Kurt Adler Christmas ornament is $65! It’s designed by David Strand. And measures over 6 inches tall. But this ornament is priced like a Radko! Still it is the first snowman on a scooter I’ve run into. Except for this guy. And he’s much too big to hang on a tree.
I got a message from someone about these neat Casa Lambretta shirts and then darn me, I forgot to write their name down. The price for them is 35.00 Euros each. The good news? At that price (not including shipping) you can believe you’ll be one of the only handful of Americans who has one. ; )
Oh this is a big ScooterSwag FAIL. Mea culpa. I always make an effort to go into a Hallmark store before Christmas to see if there are any ornaments featuring scooters. And this past year I didn’t. (Sigh.) So I missed this rather adorable ornament. It doesn’t light up or make noises. But you can still find it for fairly cheap on eBay.
If you have the world’s steadiest hands and a butt load of patience you could be the proud owner of your own very crafted from a kit set of Vespa Primavera SMALL FRAMES. The kit is Japanese and so hard to find outside of Asia but it can be had on Amazon for just over $40:
The oversized sweater ($54.99) is a new edition to ModCloth’s arsenal of scooter goodness. The skirt ($64.99) we’ve covered but it seems to be back on ModCloth . . . for now. They don’t carry tons of stock so don’t dilly dally.
