Connections: February 22.17


SANYO DIGITAL CAMERABack in the seventies

when I had little boys

Playmobil ranked among

their favorite toys.

Beloved childhood pieces

tenderly packed away

in case other little fingers

might some day want to play.

And play they did!

And added more

turning Grandma’s house

into Playmobil store.

Little fingers again grown

it’s the same old story

and I am determined

to re-box inventory.

I won’t know

that next generation

but I hope they will hear of me

at the next exhumation.

  1. I saved my boys’ Playmobil and Lego, but ours are all mixed up in plastic bins. I do admire your tender packing, as I’m sure subsequent generations will also.

    • Almost everything here has been in plastic bins too. I’m not sure why I have this compulsion to store things in their boxes; it certainly isn’t because I have nothing else to do. It’s lovely to know that I’m not the only one holding on to such things! It was so worth it, though: to see my grandchildren playing with my sons’ old toys has been great fun.

  2. Simple times – a toy with pieces, small hands, and a vivid imagination. 🙂
