Toy Drop 2 October 16, 2010

Finally managed to drop the Roly Polar bear today as my second Toy Drop for The Toy Society.  I dropped him on a bench in Margaret’s Buildings and went off to do my laundry.  I am delighted to report that he went within minutes.

In other news, Monkey has blackmailed me into letting the Happy Cornish Pasty stay so he won’t be going out as Toy Drop number 3.  I will have to get working on something to replace him.

I spent a spare couple of hours this morning finishing off another toy for a Toy Society toy-drop.  I thought it was going to be a rabbit but, once I had embroidered the face, it became obvious that he was, in fact, a polar bear.  Luckily I hadn’t started the ears so I made a quick change to my plans.  Fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine tomorrow so I can send him out into the world.

Having had a bit of a mission to find a sealable bag to fit the snake into, I finally got to do my first toy drop for The Toy Society in Victoria Park.  I picked a bench on the main drag, tied the snake to the railing in a casual manner and grabbed a quick picture before running away giggling.  I don’t know why but it all felt a bit cheeky.

The crochet snake snapped in the wild.

I set off to the supermarket but couldn’t resist passing the spot on the way home to see if he had been found.  As I got nearer the bench, my heart sank as I could still see the bag tied to the railing even though the park was quite busy and it been there for an hour or so.  I sat down on a bench opposite to try and decide whether to rescue Mr Snake or not and generally wondering if people were too suspicious to take ‘something for nothing’ at face value.  I was considering my options when a little boy and his mum came by, spotted Mr Snake and rescued him.  I was delighted as by pure chance I got to see the discovery as well as having had the pleasure of doing the drop.  I am off to plan for the next one now when I will do better at leaving the discovery in the lap of the gods.
