  • Little black toy holding thingys...

    Just taken an unbelievable number of 'little black plastic strips with 6 holes in each' off sets of toys. The ones they use when they attach the toys to the packaging with the wires that you wrestle off while the one year old is desperate for the toy.
    Anyway - they must be good for something - actually just realised they look like mechano(?) - anyone have any good ideas? The wire looks pretty useful too.

    Ooh, I have a growing collection of those too. You spend so long trying to free the toy that you feel you deserve to take some trophy from the experience...

    I've put them in my 'things to paper mache around' pot, but I suppose you could use them as a base for beading on - make a brooch or similar.

    They just look far more useful than they probably are so I'm going to keep on collecting until I work out what use they really have!

    HTH,
    Anne.
