these are the toys I want my children to have – how nostalgic.
A slingshot is possibly not the most productive of toys but it kept me amused for hours in the local woods.
plastic toy soldiers – what a classic.
matchbox cars! (is this beginning to seem a little boy centric?)
Marbles got banned from my school playground, I still have the emotional scars.
I’ve just restarted a Lego collection, timeless.
there we go, something for girls and boys – the kaleidoscope.
I really really loved the plastic Brontosaurus I was bought when we visited the Natural History Museum.
I actually still have the toy boat I was given as a child, it has a small ‘J’ written in the corner of the sail to differentiate it from my two brother’s boats.
I don’t remember having a real tin robot when I was little but I think everyone should have one in their house somewhere.
and last but not least, the quintessential spinning top, a staple item in every 80s playschool.
