Corgi Tele Luxembourg RTL 208 Radio Van

Wednesday, 30 April 2014 22:44:45 Europe/London

I was at a market last week looking at a stall and I couldn't work out where the blokes music was coming from, my ears told me it was from his table but I couldn't see a radio. Then it clicked it was coming from the toy van, I got super excited I LOVE a gadget, especially a vintage one! He said it wasn't for sale but could probably see from my vice like grip and the desperation in my eyes that a cheeky price might have worked. I kept my hands out of my pocket and decided that I'd find one cheaper elsewhere.

I'm over the moon that I managed to get my paws on an immaculate boxed Corgi Tele Luxembourg RTL 208 Radio Van, for a lot less then the cheeky market price. I was going to save it for Christmas for my son Jack but annoyingly I left it on the side for him to see after nursery. We had a little dance round the kitchen and now every morning he turns on his radio like it's the most amazing toy he's ever had, if you have kids GET ONE!!

Displaying a 'gogo' collection

Displaying a 'gogo' collection

 

My children collected loads of these small plastic gogos. They spent endless hours playing with them and dangerously leaving them laying around, many a time have I had the imprint of a three eyed, half elephant, half tiger figure on the sole of my foot… OUCH!!!  As with everything they so desperately need at the time, they’ve got over their gogo obsession. We were clearing through Darceys bedroom and she decided they can now live on her top shelve (the one she can’t reach, where all her outgrown, well loved, can’t part with toys end up).  I love the look of the gogos, they’re colourful and creative and so I decided we should display them.

A while ago I’d purchased a few thimble display cabinets, SEE!!!! I knew I would have a use for them at some point hahaha.  We used a glass fronted cabinet for Darcey (10 years) and a more simple design for Jack (4 years). They both chose a colour and we spray painted them, the kids absolutely loved doing this (we did this outside in a well prepared area, with masks, overalls and gloves). It took all my willpower to let them get involved, especially when I noticed a few runs appearing, blatantly thin layers means absolutely nothing to a 4 year old with a spray can! Not all the gogos fitted in the spaces provided but most did and I am really please with how they’ve turned out.
