As you know, I sorted out the games cupboard yesterday (click here if you missed the video). As a result, I found myself tipping out the pieces of a few old games and toys to see if they were worth selling or donating.
Just the same as the concept of trying clothes on to see if you like them, you can do the same with games for 2 reasons:
- To see if you like it – too old, too babyish, too boring, too [fill in the blank]
- To see if all the pieces are there
You can even take a photo of it if you were once attached to it or it meant something to you.
I now have a problem giving the above game away. There are face parts missing.
Same with this:
There are two days of the week that only have three pieces of the puzzle as opposed to four.
This is why clutter piles up in my spare room. I wait to find the pieces.
There’s a yellow pail missing on this ship…
The car and Mr Monopoly is missing from the ‘My First Monopoly’ game….
Half of the tree top is missing here…
I have the same issue with jigsaws from when the children were little. There’s at least one piece missing from each jigsaw. I was chatting to my mum about this and she said that as I haven’t found them by now, I should just throw them away. My answer to that was that I have a pot somewhere with missing jigsaw pieces… it’s just that I can’t find it 😂.
And so it goes on…
Does anyone else have this issue?
