Scooter Ornaments

Next on the holiday gift post thread...
One may say that posting about scooter ornaments on Nov. 3rd is a bit premature, but when you are bitten by the scooter bug, it is never too early to start. Besides, you want to get them before anyone else does!

Not sure if we can trust Walmart on this, as the photo is errible, but they are advertsing a Hand-blown Duck on Scooter Glass Ornament for $10.It looks as if there are pedals on that front wheel. If anyone finds this in the stores, let me know.Walmart also sells the repro elephant on a scooter for $48.

This Santa on a Scooter is cute, but is he $63 cute? According to the Table & Home.com website:
...these intricate handcrafted collectibles are mouth blown, hand painted and decorated by highly skilled artisans. Each glittering ornament features a small coat of arms charm identifying it as a Reed & Barton original, and is presented in an elegant keepsake gift box. Inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas. Comes with special imprinted gold hanging ribbon. Decorated with authentic Swarovski stones.

You can also buy it for $70 at William Glen.Too rich for my blood, indeed!

Scooterworks still has stock of the Hallmark Santa on a Vespa. This is one awesome item that I highly recommend that collectors get. It is a great recreation of a scooter. The headlight lights, Santa waves, and it plays "Here Comes Santa Claus" if you pull on the present in back. If you missed it the first time, get it now for $24.95.

While it may not be an ornament, you could make one out of the Genuine Buddy model that Scooterworks sells. The 1:12 scale models have a real spring for the rear suspension, vinyl seating, and real rubber tires. Only $14.99 and in a range of colors.

Chistopher Radko makes collectible glass ornaments. This "Roaming Holiday" has Santa on a nicely detailed blue scooter. It retails for $50. Pricey, too but I am considering it. You must purchase through a retailer which you can find my visiting the site.
