Happy Birthday Scooter Jenny

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SCOOTER JENNY

I mentioned before Scooter Baby was born eleven years ago in 2004. “Scooter Jenny” is celebrating her 12th birthday in December, she was first published at Cafepress.com/scooterbaby.  Jenny is our first design for ScooterBaby and became the inspiration for creating many Vespa style motor scooter designs available on shirts, hoodies, hats, mouse pads, magnets, stickers, fashion pins and many more designs.  Jenny is a beautiful girl who is a factory worker, as the story goes, her Uncle served in Italy during the Big War and brought home a Vespa Scooter as spoils of the war. He gave it to Jenny, who rides it every day to the aircraft factory where she works on the assembly line. Jenny, like Rosie the Riveter, is one of thousands of young women who left their homes to join men in the factories during and after World War II.

Happy Birthday Jenny!
