Softplastic toycars

Post by Johnfromholland »

Fourty years ago, when I woke up around 6 am on sundaymornings, wondering why my parents slept so long, I used to play with several softplastic miniature cars. I collected 11 different ones in the last few years. If you have other ones hidden on your attic, I would like to swap them for a beer on the International Weekend. Greetz, Johnfromholland

Oops, I ment so say I want to swap YOUR toys with MY beer :-) I want my collection youthsentiment to grow.

About the smell: the "weakmaker" in the plastic can cause cancer. That's why they are not produced anymore.

I may have sniffed a lot on my softplastics in my early youth :lol:

I saw what to my eyes is an old video projector but I assume it's an "advent video beam"?
