    Graffiti Scooter ---

    I have just seen a Graffiti Scooter advertised on TV.... which im sort of shocked that you would purchase something for your kids which makes a mess everywhere!!

    A quick google found this which saves me typing my thoughts!

    Now I don’t have a rant very often on the blog, but I am about to have a little one!

    I saw an advert for a new toy and it has really annoyed me, it is a scooter – that’s harmless enough, but this scooter is a graffiti one, as you ride it down the road it draws on the tarmac beneath you! Is it just me or is this encouraging all sorts of behaviour we don’t want?!

    It may seem I am over reacting as it is chalk that attaches to the back so I guess the ‘graffiti’ will be washed away, but I am more concerned about kids getting into trouble for drawing on the pavement in town, at the school gates or wherever they may take their scooter and I am concerned due to the fact it encourages graffiti, ASBOs here we come!!

    What do you think?

    Have to agree with you Rick. Hopefully a lawsuit will be bought against the manufacturer soon.

    I want the sparks one. I do agree that this chalk scooter will make … I want the sparks one. I do agree that this chalk scooter will make streets look horrible, probably ok if you live in a council estate as it will detract from the litter, but in normal places it will look awful.



    I live on a council estate and we dont have a litter problem. Where would you class as normal?

    I see no problem with it. Heaven forbid the streets of this country should look like children actually live there.

    Depends where you live I guess. If I saw chalk marks down my street, I'd get my butler to sort those little whipper snappers out.
