Sunday Post: Toys

I had so much fun with this one! These toys are ones that I’ve had for 20, 30, or more years. Some my children played with, some were given to me at different points in time, but all are now there for the grandchildren. Please note the doll bed (or tiny portions of the bed that show). My grandfather made it for us granddaughters. Since I was the youngest granddaughter on that side of the family, the bed was passed no further once it reached me. Needless to say, it is a cherished family heirloom now. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂

  1. [ Smiles ] I have noticed that you have a nice collection of classical toys; do take very good care of them.

    Also, I have to let you know that your post brought back a lot of my pleasant memories.

    1. Thank you Renard. They have been packed away for years (we have moved a lot!), but when we bought this place it was with the intent of staying put! So, I unpacked them all and was really pleased with how they had stood the test of time. And the grandkids are happy, too!

  2. I love seeing all your buddies! There’s such comfort in your photo. I had a similar doll bed made by a man who lived down the street. I don’t remember what happened to it.

    1. I am glad you like the photos. There is something special about things that are passed down from one generation to the next. When my grandchildren come to play, the I can almost visualize when my childern (their parents) played with the same toys. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Paul! I’m amazed that I still have these toys. They have been through three kids, boxed for many moves, and now they been pulled out for the grandkids. I love it when things go from one generation to another. 🙂
