Car Boot Booty: A Puzzling Time

Car boot sales are a fabulous place to buy toys. Children outgrow toys long before most are worn out and so you can get a really good deal on something that would be very expensive and new. Jigsaw puzzle prices vary but £6.99- £10.99 is quite common.

Look at these absolute beauties I got for my daughter from the car boot sale this week.

How lovely is this Where in the Wood puzzle? Every piece was there, it really tested her powers of observation and taught her a bit about woodlands too. Orchard toys puzzles are fab quality  so what a lovely puzzle.  Cost – 50p

MB puzzles have been around for ever and are tough! This one was in lovely condition and very tricky. I helped her with this and it took ages..all those spots! Cost -50p

For my final good deal, again with all pieces included, we got a simple spell game and an Aladdin puzzle for the combined cost of ….yes you guessed it 50p!!

Hope you found some treasures this week. I’ve spent £1.50 on hopefully hours of peace and quiet!!
