The Bike That Started It
Yesterday, I posted some of the Gloria playsets I purchased. I had considered purchasing the Gloria bike. Why? Because of the cute baby seat on the back. But they wanted $14.99 for the bike and $10 for shipping. Oh heck no! That baby seat isn't that cute. So I searched for other bikes that could be used in it's place.
Here is the Gloria bike set. The one I didn't buy.
I found this one and figured I could remove the picnic basket and stick a baby seat on the back.
I found this one, too, and figured we would have two moms biking together.
Then I saw this one. LOL! So I figured I would do a family biking story.
Remember this bike? I bought it over a year ago at one of the doll shows. I still haven't figured out which couple would be cute riding this. I have about four more bikes that may be part of the story as well. I then remembered Marta, telling me about a little doll named Evi who had a little bike. I looked her up in Amazon and found what I was looking for.
And here she is! This doll and bike was a little over $8 with free shipping. Unfortunately, you don't get to pick the one you want. It is randomly selected for you. The one I received is very similar to the one shown in the box. CAUTION: That cute little water bottle does not come with the set anymore. It's still worth the $8, because the bike is well made, and it comes with the cutest little training wheels. Another good thing is the doll has articulated legs. So she would be a great body donor. Sorry for over using the word, 'cute', but what else can I say about this set.
So now I am ready to do a couple bike stories. Sometimes I feel I go a little overboard once I get an idea in my head. Did I really need more bikes? Do you have any suggestions for who you would like to see in my bike stories?
