Its funny, I never usually read the local paper, even though it gets delivered free, unless theres something interesting on the front page. Well, this morning I was bored so thought I would have a peruse...in the classifieds there is:

a Little Tikes Playouse for £15, loads of garden toys for about £10 each, a sandpit for £6 and a 3 wheeler twin buggy for £60...going to see them all this afternoon!! :clapping:

Something MADE me pickup that paper,Im sure! :D

I am on the lookout for garden toys... need to get a patio dug and laid first though! :rolleyes:

They sound like good bargains... wonder if the car boots are open at the weekend? :D

Hope you get something you like schnakes.

I have just posted on freecycle for a load of garden toys - will see if i get anything! Just lost out on a little tikes climbing frame and slide to someone who got there quicker than me :( SO hopefully someone else might be able to help. If not - i'll be in the classifieds aswell :)

Playhouse was gone by the time I got there and the buggy, although brand new and looked REALLY comfortable for the kids, didnt have a swivelling front wheel, which could have been a real pain in the bum. Although now Im wishing I had bought it anyway!!! :rolleyes:

BUT! I got a seesaw, two rocking horses and one of those Little Tikes coupe cars all for £40!! Got to go and pick the seesaw up in the week!!! :clapping:

I posted on Freecycle for garden toys a while back but noone answered. One lady was giving loads of great garden toys on Freecycle - I emailed her literally TWO MINUTES after the email came in and they were already gone!!! :eek:

Now I need to decide whether to go and get that buggy after all....!!!


22-03-2008, 10:08 AM
I forgot to say - the lady with the garden toys is a childminder who has just retired!! Im going to ask her,when I pick up the seesaw, if shes selling anything else! Bit cheeky, I know!! :D
