My “Shocking” Confession

March 30, 2011

I just need to do this! If you read my blog even only every now and then (first, thank you!) you know I’m a bit too over judgemental when it comes to (cheap) plastic toys – I simply hate do not like them… BUT – yes, here it is – a GIANT, FAT “but”: we do own a few ppp… pppl… plaaa… plastic ones… (but really a can-count-on-the-fingers-of-one-hand few!) and we’ll have one more soon! I spotted this pull-along cat in a Swedish magazine and it was love at first sight. It’s plastic, it’s flashy but I love it! The retro part won! I have to have it!

Ok, I did it, phew – what a relief!

Now, to make you drop those eyebrows, here it is – a wooden beauty: isn’t this the most awesome thing you saw? I never thought this would even be possible (don’t ask me why). It’s a tiny (10 x 13 x 8 cm) radio made of pine and dark wood, it has large controls just perfect for the tiny fingers and it’s a normal, AM/FM receiving radio! At a €152.50 (From Wannekes) it’s certainly not cheap but a one-of-a-king piece, crafted by hand in 16 hours and made of high quality wood means something, right?
