This photograph was taken on June 4, 2022 at 10:27 AM.
The location was in the lobby of a very nice hotel in the Georgetown section of Washington DC.
The "Take it!" came as I entered the hotel and saw a small child zooming through the lobby behind a suitcase. Even though this was my first sighting of this imaginative toy - there was instant recognition of what was going on.
The boy stopped and I asked him if I could take a picture of his suitcase - to which he silently responded by dismounting and stepping back to give me full access to catching my photograph (I may not have been his first encounter with someone who wanted a photo of his prize). When I had finished - I verbally thanked him and without a word - he picked up where he had left off - and did some more moves in the lobby.
I showed the photo to several on my informal review committee who had never seen this before - and all thought it was a marvel. Some I think were envisioning having one for their own children. Only one of those shown the photo had seen one before - and she had purchased one for her own daughter - who had since outgrown it.
I told everyone that I would look for a big one that I could use - lol.
Wishing everyone a great week.

Now I have to find out who makes/sells these. My daughter wants one.

Our youngest immediately added this to her Christmas list.

Where were these 30 years ago when I traveled all the he time for work. This would have made all the terminal changes at the airport much easier. Lol!

I got made fun of as a kid for having a rolling backpack. I bet if I had a scooter attached to it it would have been far less “nerdy”.

My grandkids would LOVE this! I’m going to have to save it and show it to them next time I see them.
