Vintage Toys Adoption Giveaway!

Well here is the 'little' gang...normally I keep everything, but as I am being really strict with myself about
hoarding things...I have decided to put these 4 friends up for adoption for free.

They do need a clean, possibly restuffing... a bit of darning - maybe a new nose or a jazzy ribbon.....

(They do not smell musty at all)

The panda has a crunchy texture, so does the bear next to her, I think she is made of sheep skin. The big old Ted is jointed and has lost all fur, and the rabbit feels like she has wood wool in her too.

I don't EVER give old toys away, but because these old friends will have to be wrapped up and put away when we 'fingers crossed' put the house up for sale, I would much prefer they go to live with someone, who can put them on an old chair, or bed so they can watch the world go by.

They have obviously been loved and lost by someone once, and I think they must be between 60-70 years old...

So all you have to do is leave me a message.....saying why you would like them

I will post worldwide, and will pull a name out in a week!!

Bye for now

PS...If you would like one particular toy I will try and figure that out too..just leave me a message :0)

This house is being overrun by rabbits! If those Teddies can come and live with me the numbers will be balanced again! I also have a very nice wicker chair that we can all sit on.
Yours in desperation
Big Ted James

That's very generous of you x

I would love to introduce my little boy to the joys of vintage and I think he would adore them all x

Would love to give them a lovely home. Currently splitting our one bedroom home upstairs to make room for a little one (hopefully) :) and they would be sure to fit in well xx

I found your blog when I saw Silky Sue. I'd love to be part of your give away. If I won, your teddy would join a much loved cat and other teddies on my office chair.

What a wonderful giveaway! As an adopter of all sorts of waifs and strays, from human, animal and stuffed, they would find a welcome home here. Plenty of cosy chairs for them to sit on with friends with similar stories to share - oh the adventures they will be able to tell each other! Lots of understanding and patience given to any misdemeanour's as well!

They are old and must have been loved so much! They would have wonderful stories to tell to my children about there previous owners! So lovely! :0)

Fingers crossed that one of them would travle to our home were they will find lots of love...

Why would I love them? I may be a contemporary type bear maker, but my collection tends to run on the old, worn, needs love type of toys. They would fit right in here with the rest of the hug, and be appreciated for their bald beauty.
Please through my name in the drawing.

Well, as I run a long established Retirement Home For Waifs, Strays & All Lost And Unloved Toys they would feel quite at home here having afternoon tea & honey sandwiches daily!

What an amazing generous act of yours.
I would love any of these gorgeous boys, but I have to say I'm feeling especially strong thing for MR Earless there with no nose. He is speaking to me.
they would fit right in here, in the house of wonk and have lots of old boys to chat to and bear furniture to lounge in
