Just bought myself a ranch

Well, technically it's rather a fort than a ranch. When I was a kid I had lots of rubber Indians and Cowboys and always wanted such wooden houses but never got them (you see my love for miniatures was always there). So now I just bought one at ebay. I did actually look for something else but you know how you find things you never searched for (I actually searched for more of those plastic beads to make more coasters. We have lots of dark colors left but need some light ones)

Searching for toys made in GDR then brought back many memories from my childhood! Lots of familiar things I used to have or we used to have at kindergarden. Very typical designs which you can't buy anymore. Other than at ebay or flea markets, that is.

Here's a picture of my ranch - expect my figures to travel to the Wild West soon:

If you want to see for yourself, go to www.ebay.de and search for "Spielzeug DDR". That's my childhood, right there.
