2nd Time Around Tuesday

Welcome to 2nd Time Around Tuesday...I love this day. Visiting everyone and seeing all the things they find at garage sales, trade days,shops and the attic!

Today I am sharing a piece that my Cowboy found that has spent many years in an attic. He found it the other day in our hall bathroom. I have a shelf that I display antique toys on. He got it down and dusted it off. Yes he dusted. My only excuse is it is on a shelf that is up by the ceiling I can't reach it. Anyway he dusted it off and got it out for our grandson to play with.

I tried to get a good photo of him playing but I couldn't. He kept moving too fast for my little camera.
This is 40 something years old. It was mine when I was little. It was so fun watching the baby play with it. The first day he just put the animals in and then walked around with it following him. On the back side of the top is a photo of all the animals on the stands and it its all set up. He discovered the photo after playing with it for a couple of days. He looked at it then looked up at me and smiled so big! Dawng I never have the camera when I need it.

I decided to investigate it on Ebay and I found out it was from around 1960 at least the ones listed said that. I was born in 1957 so it would be about right. I found one on Ebay for $225.00. It was complete in the box. I don't have the box.

You ladies that get to garage sale and thrift shops if you find one grab it. Even the seperate pieces are worthy something and people are buying them.

I won't sell mine. I am glad that my Cowboy was smart enough to get it out for the baby!

Thanks for stopping in and playing with my circus train today. Isn't it so sweet how my grandbaby shares his toys?
