Parts Is Parts: Piles Of Creative Playthings Vehicles On eBay

Yeah, the purist in me cries a little to see fragments from so many broken up Creative Playthings Playtown sets: there's the boat from a Marina; there's the helicopters from the Air Field. The luggage haulers, too [hey, weren't those missing from the Air Field last week?] There's some gas pumps from the old Playtown parking garage, and on it goes.

But you know what? Fine. Collectors may not be interested in a pile of mismatched wooden cars, but they're all still made in Finland and sport some rocking, modern, imagination-spurring design. You can dump them in a big box, and your kid can play with them to his heart's content. And you won't be sweating that he'll gnaw away the resale value.
