A recent end-of-season seaside visit yielded nothing new in the way of plastic tat, just the usual current pound store plastic warrior offerings.
Last year the same row of seaside shops that yielded ‘space marines’ was empty of anything new:
This year some other shops were smaller or semi-closed for retirement. A few less suppliers of plastic tat …
No doubt when the current crop of pound store figures disappear from the shops I will regret not stockpiling more of them on the pound store plastic mountain.
I was surprised to see Cowboys and Indians (or Native Americans) retitled “Western Adventure” but these were (similar to) sets that I already have stockpiled for a rainy day from several years back.
I bought several sets about 5 or 6 years ago more for the useful slightly below scale waggon and useful Britain’s lead style plastic palm trees than the pirate ‘China made’ clones of the Airfix Cowboy and Indian figures.
What was inside was well worth the £2 it cost a few years ago. A good starter pack for an imaginative child of any age!
