story of stuff

I need to start watching this before I leave the house....This is also the dilemma I have with buying a new bike when we have a pink one downstairs unused. Ah!

yo momma...
have ya thought of painting the bike?

you can buy a small can of metal paint at any hardware store for less than ten bux (i recommend avoiding the appeal of spray paint... i tried it on a bike once and it was messy and it is terrible for your body and the Earth)

but you could probably find some little *extras* at Canadiantire

there are streamers- handle bar covers.. all sorts of things....

you could give him his *own* bike for fairly cheap actually.. and it could be fun.. maybe his sister could help?

just throwing it out there.

I was going to suggest painting the bike as well. I bet for only a few bucks, you could order decals from the Hotwheels company. Or is there a sign making place near you? Most have their own vinyl cutting equipment, you could get some small stickers personalized for him?
