I LOVE finding cute vintage children's toys and decor for my boys, things just seemed so much more well made in the past. Some of our most enduring toys are ones I have found at markets - when the batteries have worn out on their flashing, beeping and squawking new toys, the boys keep going back to the lovely old wooden cars, trucks and puzzles that never lose their charm.
I have featured lots of my kiddy finds in the past, here are some newer ones (forgive me if I have posted some of these before, I am getting forgetful in my twilight years ;-)
This beautiful wooden toy piano is a big hit with my littlest man - it cost $3 at a market, about the price of a pack of Paracetemol (I need them after listening to him hammering away on it all morning).
This wooden "mouse" is beautifully crafted, when it's not being played with it just sits there looking lovely on the toy shelf :-)
A complete Ravensburger Fairground puzzle, made in 1973, the same year I was born. See? I told you I'm in my twilight years!
A pair of wooden wobbly headed Korean dolls, I know there's a name for these but can't remember it.
Bambi was one of my favourite movies as a child, I was delighted to pick up this vintage edition of the story.
Board games are always popular with my eldest son...
...but it's my middle munchkin who's the biggest fan of these giant chunky dice as you can see.
A little man can never have too many cases to put his things "fings" in.
Another charming little vintage child's chair to add to our collection...
...Hoot likes to hang out here.
A cowboy lampshade, Babar height chart and globe add more vintage charm to our playroom.
Cute blue cars!
How cute are these dinosaur fairy lights? I will never forget the smile on my S's face when he saw them lit up for the first time :-)
I plan on doing something crafty with this cowboy fabric, at the rate I complete craft projects perhaps something for my grandchildren?
