With our oldest grandchild having just turned 4, we have gradually been bringing down stored "treasures" from the attic. Boxes and boxes of Fisher Price and Playskool toys which we packed up when our youngest, now 33, no longer played with them. Some date back to our oldest, now 39 and all the toys have held up reasonably well considering. Our three grandchildren love to play with them on their visits.
One such toy was this red fire engine which was a gift to our son when he was three. He is now 36 and the grandchildren are his children. The fire engine sustained some damage over the years but the pedals still worked and the kids enjoyed riding it.
I recently decided to give it a facelift and as you can see, a can of red spray paint worked wonders. I also had some silver spray paint left over from another project and it brought the original shine back to the bell and the ladder bars. Some of the stickers remained and were able to be peeled off before painting and reapplied afterwards.
There is still plenty of life left in this 33 year old toy!BLOG PARTIES
