I have just turned the tv on in preparation for my favourite show on tv, the quiz show EggHeads.
It is one of these get-rich-quick programmes where you start off with something worth a cent, you “discover” it, then you auction it for $1 million. Utter rubbish.
They just had an old train set on, and for the very first time I heard the term M & B – mint and boxed. And then they went into a spiel about how most toys are worthless, because they have been been played with, and the valuable ones are those that have never even been opened.
And I’m just sitting here thinking how sad that is, to have a toy that’s never been played with.
