Like-A-Vespa

This Like-a-Bike-like walking scooter practically demands to be covered with mod decals and several rearview mirrors. And if anyone knows where to get a kid-sized army jacket, I know where to get an iron-on target t-shirt.

[And speaking of Target, you could wait until next spring to see if they come out with a knockoff, but given that this summer's $50 Like-a-Bike knockoffs are now on sale for $12.99, I would bet their saturation marketbombing campaign is over.]

if you have two kids you need to get one of them this awesome scoot and the other one this
Ducati Monster

then take them all out to the beach for a little mods v. rockers rumble.

It simply looks cute! I wonder how practical it is.

I feel completely ripped-off.

And here I thought I was getting a deal buying the knock-off at $50...compared to $300.

There's something wrong with this world.

[I've heard that if you buy them by the containerload, they're just $14. So there's still the possibility that Target--which bought them by the shipload--is still making money at $13. chew on that. Or wait, don't; it's probably got lead paint. -ed.]
