I have always believed that Children like Box's better than it's contents...and to prove my point the two pictures above clearly uphold my belief...
That Box was played with on every visit the Grandchildren made.....It had a window so you could see out - and holes where the arms could go through..it was carefully put in the Garage each time before they left -
Until the next visit when it was the first thing to come out to be played with - it was a "Space Ship" - a "Boat "-A "plane" a "train" and "Tank" - but it fitted in to every game they played whatever they wanted it to be It became..
Until it eventually fell apart and was disguarded to the rubbish bin.
Now they are looking for another box seems they must have one to continue there games.. but the box needs to be a bit bigger than the last one...as they have grown a few inches since then.
What fun they had with that old box...and their Grand dad
