Mattel to introduce a more casual GI Joe line (with scooter!)

Scooter Ken

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.

Kurt Adler Snowman Vespa Scooter Christmas Ornament

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.

Casa Lambretta T-shirts Scooters

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. ; )

A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Agent P Scooter Hallmark Christmas Ornament

Agent P Scooter Hallmark Christmas Ornament Phineas and Ferb Disney

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.

Weeee Wheeee.
