A toy store in a nearby town has a clearance sale on, so I got these at 50% off (of even already discounted prices on some) just the other day:
At 1:48, the trucks, bus, and fork lifters will see service on any contemporary/near future table (like, for instance, zombie games).
The Schleich fruit bats will act as giant bats whenever needed.
Today they were selling stuff at -75%, so I got a whole bunch of carnival/halloween outfits for the girls. If some of them are not to their tastes, I can probably sell those on with a small profit ;o)
