The Crap at the Bottom of the Toy Box

I had a thought whilst digging through one of my local op shops toy box.  Why don't they chuck out all the bits that accumulate at the bottom of the box from long gone toys.  Bits from Buckaroo, Lego hair, Mr Potato Head hand, dolls sunglasses, Scoops scoop, ....

The crap at the bottom of the box!

I then though what could you use them for to avoid having to throw them out.... not a lot..... or so I thought!!!

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who's spent time thinking about the crap at the bottom of the box too!

On a side note it made me think of the Raggy Dolls an 80s flashback!!

It's not much of a life when you're just a pretty face,
Just to be whoever you are is no disgrace,
Don't be scared if you don't fit in...
Look who's in the reject bin!
It's the Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!),
Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!),
Dolls like you and me,
Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!),
Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!)
M ade imperfectly!
So if you got a bump on your nose or a lump on your toes, do not despair,
Be like the Raggy Dolls, and say I just don't care,
'Cause Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!),
Raggy Dolls (Raggy Dolls!),
Are happy just to be,
Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Dolls like you and me!
