A Walk Down Memory Lane…

My parents came to visit us recently and my Mum brought over some very old memories from my childhood. I didn’t even realise she kept them!

The Cricket Game

The Cricket Game


I’m not sure if you ever played with this but I doubt they make anything like it any more. Aristotle and I re-enacted a match between Australia and England recently (he was Australia and I was England). It was a close match with England losing by just 8 runs! Aristotle was really fascinated by how the game worked and was puzzling over the mechanism. Yup. They sure don’t make ’em like this any more…

Aussie Books

Old Favourites

Now who remembers these?

These were a special edition series that was selling at the post office and they came with bookmarks (which I don’t have any more, unfortunately). Most of these books aren’t even in publication any more so I’m glad I still have them to introduce to Aristotle.

It was nice to be able to bring something from my childhood that you don’t get any more that I could share with my boys.

Do you have any old toys and books that aren’t easily available any more that your children are playing and reading now? Tell us about them…
