While I'm here I wanted to share this great thing I got recently. Tammy World and her dad, Wally, are helping me.
|These really cool 1/6 scale trash cans!|
I saw something online somewhere about them being available at Walmart, so I sent Fuzz on a mission for me. Sorry I can't give credit to whoever posted it, but I honestly can't remember where I saw it.They're actually pencil holders. The sticker on the outside says 'Pencil Bin'. But they are perfect 1/6 scale trash cans.
|"Here's some trash Dad." "Ok. Put it in."|
|"Don't drop that lid on me like last time." "That was an accident." "Uh huh."|
|"I like this one Dad. It looks like a Creamsicle." "Well I wouldn't lick it if I were you."|
They came in this blue, what Fuzzy describes as a 'neon green',and this road workers orange.
|"Take me for a ride Dad!" "Get off Tam. We have to finish showing these trash cans to the people."|
They're in the school supplies, and our local Walmart only had one blue one left. I think the blue ones look way more realistic, although Ken swears that he has seen orange ones like this one in human size. (He's obviously been somewhere I haven't been!)
|"Are we done showing 'the people' now Dad? Can I push one?" "There really are people Tammy." "Sure there are...Can I push one?" *Sigh* "Yeah I guess. Take the green one. The orange one's not full." "Ok."|
It's too far from the start of school I guess, because most Walmarts seem to be out of them. I checked a different Walmart when Lori and I went to the flea market last Friday and all they had was one orange one without a lid.
I would have liked to have had another blue one, and a black or grey one would have been great. I suppose that isn't a cool colour for a pencil bin though, which is why they made them in the bright colours instead.Good luck finding these things. They'll look great in dioramas. I know my kids would have loved to have them for their dolls too.
