I was always fascinated with my Spirograph...generating such precise shapes and patterns...had to focus but it smile.png seemed almost like magic. Turned out to be my introduction to sacred geometry which I still love.....and sometimes create free hand...but with a little more soulsmile.png

Tinkertoys...they were made of wood, came in a storage canister, and you built things out of them. Kids today wouldn’t bother with them...too low-tech!

A German made racing car - a Shucco No 6 or 9 Car of 1936 - Amazing I looked on ebay - there is a similar car for £10.00 - Photo shows - no tyres - perished - bits missing ?

P.S. I made a wooden box for a Scale Electric - using it to make the cover more colourful - Son claimed it.

I only ever had the one toy which was the teaset below that my eldest brother bought from East Street market in London the week I was born in 1930.
He used to run errands for a ha'penny and saved until he had threepence.
A ha'penny was a former British coin equal to half a penny.He saved 6 for my teaset.

Unfortunately I never got to play with it until I finally came out of the so called Sisters-of Mercy home in 1936 and I was thrilled to bits to be pouring cold water from the teapot pretending it was tea for any friends I had made and sorrowfully lost when the war started.

It survived being bombed out twice during the London Blitz because I took it everywhere with me packed away in the box and it even survived the 57 days and nights we spent down the Anderson shelter during the Blitz with only a cracked cup that was glued together and a small chip in the teapot spout.

My d-i-l has had it now for many years in her cabinet and it will be passed on to my granddaughter in time.
It will be 91 years old this month just like its wizened former owner.
It is foreign made so not really worth anything but treated by my lovely d-i-l like the crown jewels.
