Dolly Wheels

I've collected several modes of transport for my dollies over the years and haven't really played with them. In gathering them together, I realise that I own more bikes than cars.

I like unusual vintage things and found this decorative piece at a local store in 2011.  It is made entirely of metal pieces that have been welded together. 

For months I would see it at the store and wish I could afford to buy it.  Fortunately, my luck changed during the Christmas season that year, when the price was reduced.  Of course, I snapped it up. 

The manufacturer,  Jayland Products (Dalian) Company,  specialises in producing "handmade antique metal home decorations, such as antique style model cars, airplanes, and motorcycles".

I was only able to find this reference to it online from  So, it seems to be an imitation Harley Davidson from 1956.   Amazon marketplace has some other cool Jayland products.

Tonner's Precarious thinks it's a cool accessory.

This bicycle came with a Famosa Nancy doll that I purchased from  I got the bike for my BFC Ink large dolls but wanted to check the fit with a Tonner doll.  Yoshio was kind enough to offer his services.

It seems a bit clunky, but could pass as the appropriate size. 

"Yeah. I'm comfortable with my inner child and my feminine side."

In the 1:6 scale size, I have a silver My Scene Masquerade Madness convertible.  I can't remember if I bought this locally or not.

Chelsea and Ken love it!

I bought this red Scooter around 2009, from a local toy shop that had it on its shelves for a while.  The box was coming apart and had a lot of wear, so I asked for a discount and got it!  It came with a red helmet.

Last Christmas, I got this battery-operated bicycle at a local drug store.  It came with its own doll attached.  Sometimes it seems too large for 1:6 scale dolls, but I like the colour and how realistic it looks.  The container at the back is for the batteries. The 'training wheels' allow the bike to stand upright.

I found this Honda on  I haven't taken it out of it's packaging yet, even though I've had it since March 2013.

I purchased these 1:18 scale Vespas,  Ducati Sport 100 (top) and Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R (bottom) motorcycles at a local toy store in 2011.
The tiny bike is one that I bought for my now 29 year old son when he was quite young. He preferred cars, so I kept the bike for myself.  My mini Lalaloopsy has now claimed it.

Earlier this year, I bought this mini van which originally contained candy and is labelled 'Happy Van'.  My Mini Bs are anxious to show their display and presentation skills at a car show.
