Kids Corners

Some kiddy stuff.

I saw the idea of using vintage board games as decor on Flickr and loved it. This Lone Ranger game was an eBay purchase 99 cents and the French/English game was $5 in Vinnie's. The tin toys and lamp are as previously posted, I used the wooden drinks crate I wrote about before as the table base, I had being using it for storing the boys' craft materials but it was a bit heavy to lug around so now it has a new purpose.

The Lone Ranger game is from 1966 and is made in Australia and the French game was made in Canada in 1980. Nice to have some games from before everything started being "Made in China".

This is a shot I previously featured, the little book display is an old spice rack I spruced up with white paint, along with some of the boys' tin toys and a little case I jazzed up with some robot paper.

This is a shot of the boys' shelves I took a while back, rare for them to be so tidy!!!

Great idea for the games, especially ones that are missing pieces. I have a few vintage toys for my guys but they tend to get lost in the lego clutter! We will be reducing out what they are not still playing with this summer. We will have a garage sale instead of always going to them.
