I love it!...I want one, the yellow car that is, great capture
Chris: This is the sort of car kids had in my childhood Robbyne - a long time ago!

Lewis Hamilton, age 8 months, shows early signs of skills as an F1 driver!
Chris: Absolutely Ray, he could zoom a lot faster round the track than that engine could..

These are treasures Chris... good find....petersmile
Chris: Thank you Peter
How great! Those rusty old toys are so cool - but the "baby" is a little creepy! Mind you - I've always thought doll baby's are a little creepy - only had one as a girl, and lost interest after I'd pulled all her eyelashes out!
Chris: You are quite right Elizabeth, as kids we just accept these dolls as normal. Then when we're older we realise they're quite creepy things..

Great stuff here Chris...LOVE the radiant colours.
I just read that Elizabeth is as dangerous as I am... I had a doll like that and I poked her eyes out. I do have my Teddy-bear. I almost hugged it to death.
That locomotive is a winner to me.
Chris: I had a Teddy Bear too Astrid, which I too hugged to bits
Wee bit Tee Cut and it will be sparkling again. Had Cameron at the children museum in Edinburgh last year where he ended up like the doll. thankfully it was very quiet.
Chris: I think this thing needs a little bit more that Tee Cut Scotia..
The doll could get a part in a remake of Child's Play as Chucky's sibling.
Chris: As always you are quite right

Scary one eyed doll!

I used to have a red pedal car - I was always getting pulled over for speeding!
Chris: These things are manufactured for innocent fun but can often appear as unworldly & sinister

Lovely little car, baby doesn't look too well!
Chris: Needs another eye Sarah
What a great find, they must be very old. I confess to still having my Teddy somewhere about the house, and Maureen still has her doll although our daughter found it a bit sinister, don't know why.
Chris: These were at a vintage toy sale Brian
This is a good find for sure.
Chris: Thank you Jacqueyln
I love seeing antique toys like these, Chris. They seem to have a certain charm that is hard to find in toys of today.
Chris: Yes they do just that Bev: thank you
Love the cars but that doll is scary, Chris.
Chris: I agree it is Pauline
Not only policemen are looking younger smile Nice objects
Chris: Found together at a vintage & antique fair in Bath John

What a great collection, either of the vehicles I would have loved as a child - as for the doll, I did not give dolls house room smile
Chris: You're going to tell me next you had no Teddy Bear!
Interesting mish mash of things there Chris. I like the ladybird coming round the corner
Chris: Thank you for pointing that out to me Janet!

Now I'm sure I nada pedal car very similar to that. when I were a nipper. The loco looks to be in better condition than some of things running on British Rail (or whatever the heck it's called this days)
Chris: I can just see you in one of these, the car not the train
