Boys and their toys

My step-dad {Rod} has an extensive collection of toys from his childhood.
We'll call them vintage toys, ok?
While they all hold sentimental value,
some have a significant monetary value at this point too.


Among his treasures are some really cool model cars that he keeps high on a shelf, out of the reach of little hands. My three-year old nephew {Stone} managed to figure out a way to get Papa's blue car off the shelf during a recent visit, and here's how that ended up:


Presley {Stone's 7-year-old big sister} was tugging aggressively on the very stuck little car, trying desperately to dislodge it before Papa came home.

Aunt Deb: "Pres! Be careful! We don't want to damage Papa's car!"
Presley: "Or Stone's!"

Ah...perspective...

{Neither Presley or I were able to free Stone's little car, and had to wait for Papa's help.}

What a cute story - of course you wouldn't want to damage either toy! LOL

I'm sure it wasn't the first time a small pair of hands caused damage to either one of those cars!

So funny. Just a reminder that we all have different views and priorities. LOL

Precious! Papa isn't nearly as "obsessed" with his toys as he was before the grands entered his life! Cute moment in our history! xoxo

Don't even get me started on the sad ending to my original Star Wars action figures.

I love the saying

'The only difference between men and boys is the price they pay for toys!' and this story perfectly illustrates it!

We have some of Paul's Lesley matchbox cars that his parents kept and gave to us. Will pass them along some day.

It just proves the ability of small ones to do anything, if they set their minds to it - Stone found out how to get that fabulous toy, even though it was way up above his head!
Glad Papa was able to deal with the crisis - I hope neither vehicle suffered damage! Presley's concern for Stone is very touching.
