While on my way home a couple of weeks ago, I passed by a local shop, which is kinda like a home depot/pound shop type place. On previous visits, I had noticed that they sell cheap toys and what not, so I decided to pop in an see if they had anything I could use in my games. So after a quick peruse around the shop, I took a stroll down the toy aisle, and to my delight I found these.
This box containing six plastic vans (two for each of the three emergency services) was priced at a mere £3.49! Safe to say, after a quick check to see if they were roughly the right size, I nabbed them up instantly!
When I got home, like a child with a new toy, I instantly opened them up for a closer look. Now they are not the best toy vehicles bar far, but at that price, they’ll do the job! I lined them up with some figures and my home built roads to check the scale, and in my opinion, they lined up quite nicely.
Now a few days after I bought these, my daughter and I went to visit my younger brother. Talking to him, he showed me the silly Christmas presents his mates down at the forge (yes my brothers a blacksmith, and no he hasn’t made me any armour/weaponry yet lol) had got him as his secret santa present. We had a good laugh at the random crap they got him, which included some toys which he gave to my daughter, and this!
Safe to say, I was quite pleased when he said I could keep it!!!!
