When we at the Docklands Market a week or so ago, we came across this stall selling the usual bits and pieces. I have to go back this Sunday as I have decided to buy something for my bedroom to replace something I have never been keen on. Said object can be seen in my profile pic. I saw the replacement item at the market but we did not have the car and it was too awkward to carry, plus, I wasn't 100% sure. I am now.
This tin tram looks to be modelled on Melbourne's old W trams. The maker seemed to be having a bob each way with a pole but with kind of a skid on top. I think it was about $40 and from what I have heard, this could be fairly cheap price.
I am not sure if I had one or someone else did and I played with it, but it is a working typewriter for kids. It was very slow to type with as you had to turn the dial to what character you wanted then press the lever to move the golf ball thingy to make an inked print. Fun for kids though.
