    To open or not?

    Post by mk209 on Sat Feb 16, 2013 8:05 pm

    This is bugging me Laughing The temptation to open is strong..........



    They've been packed since 1982 so it seems a shame to open now.

    If you do open them I have some sealed ones kicking about that I could let you have cheap if you feel guilty!

    Laughing thanks for the offer if guilt does get the better of me I'll PM you. It was one of those purchases that seemed good at the time but I'm sure they'll just sit there in a cupboard for the next 10 years or so. Still for £3.75 it felt rude not to buy them.

    Laughing I recall having the same dilemma a while back, I resisted the temptation by getting hold of a set already opened and used, so I still have a sealed set, which I will leave to my grandchildren, to through a similar dilemma !!

    At my work my boss has his store and then his warehouse where all the good stuff is. He has things that have been packaged since before WWII and up. Sometimes I do have to open a few if they're to be sold but its fun because its like opening up a time capsule. So I'd say if you can grab another set keep one closed and one open, or just hold onto the card and plastic.

    Gary, I'm sure your grandkids will really appreciate being left something that is worth £3 in your will Wink I suspect the only dilema for them will be whether to dump it in the blue or black bin Laughing

    Laughing Well Dave,that's true I guess, but after all the potential baby sitting,and spending extortionate amounts of money,on the little financial parasites,I will class it as "Grandads revenge"

    leave them sealed, you know whats inside, no reason to unwrap them , plus they take up less space when you leave them sealed
