SPH # 33: Hard to Find



The theme is hard to find and I remember my excitement when I saw this toy that I had when I was a child being sold in Divisoria. I immediately got one for my B and he loved it. The ball beneath goes around in a circle and when it does, the hens on top starts to peck. It is such a glorious toy to have. It is what we call a "hen-pecker."

What are your hard to finds? For other photo hunters, please go here.

  16. I remember a similar toy wherein you have two plastic balls attached to a rod and when you shake it, it hits each other and make noise. Forgot the name of that toy but was popular in the 80s.

  18. I think I have memories of this, but my childhood was too long ago. :p I like how toys then can be made of wood. Now they're mostly battery-operated.
