Obi Wan-da outgrew her old bike so PB and I thought her birthday would be a good excuse to buy her a new one. I was very busy the day I bought it and completely frazzled when I went to Toys R Us. All I remember seeing were princess faces (with their bellies covered) and a big sale sign.

Then PB put it together and beckoned me outside to take a look at it:
Silence. "Boy is that gaudy."
Personally I think it looks like a bunch of princesses threw up all over it. PB said it looks like an episode of "Pimp My Bike".
The only thing that's missing is a bell. Which designer thought the purple butterfly "hubcaps" would be a nice touch, but a bell would be over the top?
Of course Obi Wan-da LOVES it and that's all that matters. There wouldn't be a princess 100 yards near something I like. My parents bought me a yellow bicycle with a rainbow banana seat when I was a girl. It was one of my most memorable Christmas presents ever. If Obi Wan-da's bike makes her half as happy as I was with my bike, then I'm very glad we bought it.
Even if it looks like a unicorn should be riding it.
