I have written before about how many toys my children play with that formerly belonged to me and the husband. Both natural hoarders, we find it hard to get rid of anything and have always done so. This instinct is proving really useful at the moment as it seems that toys from the late 1970’s early 1980’s are the most sought after items, much like clothing from that era.
This soft toy dog attached to a slightly dangerous metal frame (which actually belongs to my sister) is so often fought over that for a while I had to hide it. However, I have got it back out and yet again its proving popular and is brilliant for imaginary adventures. We could probably buy a modern one with a soft wood frame and eco friendly padding, but it wouldn’t be the same and I bet that they wouldn’t show anywhere as much interest in it.
