toy week

We got these little clowns to entertain our son from someone who was cleaning out her mother's old stuff. But of course we don't let the son play with them. Checking on internet the other day we found out that they were sold with their original box (we have that) for 150-170 British pounds each. As we had suspected.

So they are collector's items. Not toys.

As we are about to move I look at many old things these days: useless mass produced toys and old toys with stories ... and collector's items. This week I'll share pictures of the second kind of toy.

These are great... collectible, musical clowns. Mass produced toys pale in comparison.
