Grandson
« on: June 03, 2024, 05:51:32 pm »
  Here are some pics. of some toys I recently bought for my one year old grandson , and myself of course . Maybe I can create some interests in him besides just video games and TV . I am going to start him out with Tinkertoys , then when he is a bit older , move on to the Erector set . Even though the Erector set has an electric motor, I have also acquired A Meccano steam engine . This will not only give him a better powerplant , but also one that can burn him , scald him and set the house on fire . Man ! what a toy . Even if I can't interest him in them , I will have some nice toys for myself !

I have my first grandson due in late October.

I am already developing a group of toys for him. :)

Great start for your grandson!

My granddaughter has liked my engines since she was 1 year old.

She has her own little Fleischmann steam engine which was a gift from Charlie!
