I did get a load of new toys at Christmas time, so I thought that I would share them today. But first is an old toy that I have had for a number of years.
I bought this in Boston. I was walking down the street early in the morning, when I saw a neon wind-up key hanging on the front of a building. Well that got my heart beating faster, then I saw the owner taking out the trash and I convinced her to open up just for me. Of course I made lots of purchases including this fellow. You put a coin in front of him and he (I’m not totally sure he’s a guy, but it seems logical;-) reaches up and takes the money. It’s a totally cool toy and every kid that I’ve shown it to wants one.
This year’s version is not as cool, it just has a hand that reaches up and the skull just bobs a little. But it’s still interesting and so I had to have it.
I got a new selection of pterodactyls (and a pteroducktyl).
It was quite the haul and now that I’ve photographed them they can go to their proper places in the cabinet.
