Wrist Scan for Friday 15th is Open Now!! Theme: "Watches and Toys" !!! Lest play with our favorite watches and toys!!

May 15, 2020,05:48 AM

Hello friends!!

As announced a couple of days ago, I will have the pleasure of hosting this week end exploring this Theme with all our participants. 

It is often said that main difference between toys of adults and children is in their prices. Adults love for cars and watches are good examples of that popular saying.

We often keep carrying forever in our adult hearts and souls the love for toys we have loved and enjoyed in our childhood.

Electric trains, miniature cars, scale planes, baseball cards, JI Joe dolls, etc. etc. still haunt us through toys we have kept through many years or toys we have bought as adults for our own children … or for our own pleasure. 

In my personal case my favorite toys were electric trains and small cars and airplanes and I still keep some of those pieces which have been enjoyed by me, then by my children and now enjoy my grandchildren as well. I feel that often those toys reflect some passions and obsessions we carry on as adults, like my small collection of BondΒ΄s Aston Martins or my collection of Helmet divers figurines.

So the challenge this week end will be to share your favorite toys (or your childrenΒ΄s toys if they allow you to play with them! Lol!) together with your favorite watches and please tell us something about those toys you still own or just remember from your childhood with love and nostalgia.

Wrist Scan Edition is Open right now to start posting your "Watches and Toys".

Enjoy playing this week end and stay safe my dear friends!

There are toys aplenty in our household but getting them away from their owners for pictures, while there’s decent lighting for pictures (and I am in telcos) is a challenge. Still managed to find something for you πŸ˜‰ ...  

Thanks a lot for the endorsement πŸ˜‰

 By: KMII : May 16th, 2020-02:23
From the pre-Corona days, when I had to be ready for anything 😁

Ha ha ha!! Thank you so much dear KM!! You managed to get some superb shots!! Beware of those little strap eating crocos please! Fantastic! Great timepieces you share...

These accumulated over a while - taking more than one or two a day is a challenge πŸ˜‰

Thanks Brauner!

Not being much in use I thought some air time wouldn’t harm - so I paired it with my son’s crocodile. There was going to be a dolphin and a shark but he snatched them away πŸ˜‚

My eldest sister bought me Big Loo by Marx for Christmas, 1963. Although my original is long gone, I found a replacement at a local auction a few years ago...
