      Me too! I wish I’d kept all my toys!

      I had a bad experience with a tin toy when I was about 3 years old – I had a wind-up Santa on a tricycle with a plastic balloon suspended from a wire “string” on the back & I got the wire firmly wedged between my teeth with the balloon in my mouth. Panic stations until my mum managed to dislodge it!
