Win One For The Little Zipper! Creative Playthings Mail Scooter On eBay

Haven't seen one of these turn up on eBay before. It's a Creative Playthings Mail Scooter called the Little Zipper, presumably a reference to the 5-digit Zip Code, which was being promoted for general use in the late 1960's and into the mid-70's.

I'd email the seller to confirm the dimensions: 10 3/4 inches sounds really short, and converting it to metric--27cm--doesn't help. Maybe if the metric system had such effective merchandising tie-ins as this, I'd know what 27 centimeters means.

maybe it's just me, but this scooter does nothing for me. I like most of the Creative Playthings toys, but this one falls short.
