Fold out Moleskine based on childhood memories.
Just after WW2 my Dad had a small carpentry business mostly making seasonal toys. Shrove Tuesday used to be the time children would play with whips and tops. You wind the string of the whip round the top then pull it away to leave the top spinning. The aim was to keep the top spinning as long as possible by whipping it. If Dad had a big order Mum and I would sometimes spend the evening tying knots in the end of the strings and threading then through the handles.
He made small dolls which would toddle down a slope too and some miniture pull along horses on wheels, shown in the picture.I really liked those and wish I still had mine now.
Toys in the little blue Box
While visiting my parents in Michigan my sister pulled out a bag and showed me these MINIX and Matchbox hidden in a small wooden box. Of course I wanted them but she claimed they are hers and has had them since we were kids in England, about 1964 / 65. I do remember these and of course I wanted them but she refused. So I decided the next best thing was to catalog them on here. Great piece of history thats for sure. I still think I should have them, I mean why does she need them.
