Monkey, Frog and the Scooter

I really enjoyed creating Monkey and Frog riding on a Vespa Scooter with a side car, when I was finished I thought it would make a cute children’s book.  Perhaps, in the future The Adventures of Monkey and Frog will become a book project, I think it could evolve into a fun kids bedtime story.

In the meantime, it’s available on t-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, scooter stickers, aprons, postcards, greetings cards and many more fun gift items.  Just click on the links and browse the store for all the items available, I think you’ll be surprised.

 

Here’s a greeting card with Monkey and Frog and their wild ride on the scooter, a great matching greeting card to go along with the t-shirt above or a gift you choose in the store.  Oh, did I ever mention, all our products are easily customized with text?  Yup, you just go to the product detail page in our store and click on the “Customize It” button to open up full feature options for personalizing your cards and gifts … it’s neat and it’s easy.

Let me know about my idea of a kid’s book about Monkey, Frog and Scooters.  I’d  like to know everyone’s ideas.

The Mods, Vespa Scooters and the Sixties

Mods riding a tricked out Vespa Scooter.Vespa clubs popped up throughout Europe, and by 1952, worldwide Vespa Club membership had surpassed 50,000. By the mid-1950s, Vespas were being manufactured under licence in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and Spain; in the 1960s, production was started in India, Brazil and Indonesia.  Soon Vespa clubs expanded throughout Europe driven by the popularity of Vespas and Lambretta Scooters.

Mod is a subculture that began in 1960s Britain and spread, in varying degrees, to other countries and continues today on a smaller scale. Focused on music and fashion, the subculture has its roots in a small group of London-based stylish young men in the late 1950s who were termed modernists because they listened to modern jazz, although the subculture expanded to include women.

Many mods drove motor scooters, usually Vespas or Lambrettas. Scooters were a practical and affordable form of transportation for 1960s teens and young adults, and in the early 1970s, public transport stopped relatively early in the night. For teens with low-paying jobs, scooters were cheaper and easier to park than cars, and they could be bought through newly-available hire purchase plans.

Mod Club Meet-up. Scooters on display.Mods also treated scooters as a fashion accessory. Italian scooters were preferred due to their clean-lined, curving shapes and gleaming chrome. For young mods, Italian scooters were the “embodiment of continental style and a way to escape the working-class row houses of their upbringing”. Mods customised their scooters by painting them in “two-tone and candyflake and overaccessorized with luggage racks, crash bars, and scores of mirrors and fog lights”. Some mods added four, ten, or as many as 30 mirrors to their scooters. They often put their names on the small windscreen. They sometimes took their engine side panels and front bumpers to electroplating shops to get them covered in highly reflective chrome.

Hard mods (who later evolved into the skinheads) began riding scooters more for practical reasons. Their scooters were either unmodified or cutdown, which was nicknamed a “skelly”. Lambrettas were cutdown to the bare frame, and the unibody (monocoque)-design Vespas had their body panels slimmed down or reshaped.

Royal Air Force roundel, a mod symbolAfter the seaside resort brawls, the media began to associate Italian scooters with violent mods. The media described groups of mods riding scooters together as a “menacing symbol of group solidarity” that was “converted into a weapon”. With events like the November 6, 1966, “scooter charge” on Buckingham Palace, the scooter, along with the mods’ short hair and suits, began to be seen as a symbol of subversion.

As many British rock bands of the mid-1960s began to adopt a mod look and following, the scope of the subculture grew beyond its original confines and the focus began to change. By the summer of 1966, the proletarian aspects of the scene in London had waned, as the more fashion and pop-culture elements continued to grow, not only in England, but elsewhere. This period, portrayed in Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film Blowup, was typified by pop art, Carnaby Street boutiques, live music, and discothèques. Many associate this era with fashion model Twiggy, miniskirts, and bold geometrical patterns on brightly coloured clothes. It would exert a considerable influence on the worldwide spread of mod, particularly in the United States.[

As mod was going through transformation in England, it became all the rage in the United States and around the world, as many young people adopted its look. However, the worldwide experience differed from that of the early scene in London in that it was based mainly on the pop culture aspect, influenced by British rock musicians. By now, mod was thought of more as a general youth-culture style rather than as a separate subgroup among different contentious factions. Countless American musicians, in the wake of the British Invasion, would adopt the look of mod clothes, longer hair, and Beatle boots. The exploitation documentary, Mondo Mod, provides a glimpse at mod’s influence on the Sunset Strip and West Hollywood scene of late 1966. Mod would become increasingly associated with psychedelic rock and the early hippie movement, by 1967, when more exotic looks, such as Nehru jackets and love beads came into vogue. Its trappings were reflected on popular TV shows such as Laugh-In and The Mod Squad.
