Cee’s B&W Challenge: Toys for Children & Adults


Here are my photos for this week’s B&W photo challenge. Many of these toys were once played with by children and now collected and played with again by adults. I suspect often the same ones! Dolls, bears and trains will always be loved by someone. Who can resist dressing up a fashion doll or blowing the whistle on a steam engine. Who can help but pick up and hold that cuddly teddy bear. I still love these things and I still feel for change in my pocket when passing remote control cars and boats or that mysterious old coin operated fortune teller. In fact I was even tempted to buy one of the colourful pinwheels below.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
