As an architect, I get to specify materials for the houses I design. One of the products that gets used often is a line of plumbing fixtures called Waterworks. It is a very high end line with very expensive fixtures and tiles. But they always look great.
Last Christmas, after giving a ride to the Florida sales representative, she gave me a metal scooter as a gift. It is much tougher than ScooterBob, but lacks the personality I can feel in the wooden scooter.
