Dreams of retirement?

This is what we did this afternoon!

HAHAHAHA!!!

I made a quick trip to the Thrift store and came home with 2 boxes of Tinker Toys.....

wait...they are Fabulous Fiddlesticks!

But they are old enough to be Made in the USA and have tin bottoms on the boxes!

I was happy with my find and my hubby and I both put together something from the instructions!

He made the Ferris Wheel....my favorite!

And I made the Windmill (with a little help! heeheehee! )

Yes, I am old enough to remember Tinker Toys. However, I was not all that creative building items with them. I did, however, enjoy building what I called
"decorations."

Oh my gosh, my brother, sister, and I spend a lot of hours playing and creating with Tinker Toys when we were kids. I loved them! I like browsing on eBay and seeing all the toys I had as a kid....except that I don't like seeing them called "vintage"! LOL!!!

Glad you had a fun and happy day!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Hi Diane,

Sounds like a fun day.
Tinker toys did not make it down here, we did have K-nex that were a little like that.

Happy week
Hugs
