Princess Tiny Neferua: “Wow a skooter. Only a few days ago I was telling a friend how I use to make them and trolleys, also drinking cups out of Klim and Ovaltine cans. So good to see one again.”

Brerlou L King: “ The steering was ingenious, advanced mechanical engineering. They even had brakes, made from old shoe leather. Always wanted to own one, but could never get a pair of ball bearings.”
