I kept a ton of books from my childhood (Enid Blyton, Hardy Boys, Willard Price, etc) to pass to my kids. My eldest really enjoyed them but sadly, the other two are not into reading. YouTube and gaming interests them much more.
Now the books are so old and worn, I don’t think I can donate them to a library.
My old Kindergarten scrap book and Teddy Bear. My oldest (Mr 7yr old) sleeps with the bear.
Conviniently (for them) my old Tazo collection which had 5 seasons worth of Tazos (2x Looney Tunes, 2x Cheetohs and 1x Simpsons) had disappeared. I looked up the value which came out at about $200 as it was in the folder and not played with so near mint condition.
Got a record player recently. Seen the old man on the weekend and he gave me some old vinyl. One was Best of Rolf Harris, another was a compilation of Al Jolson, complete with black face and white gloves. My 16 year old daughter was horrified.
He also gave me Sgt Peppers some ABBA and Men At Work, so it wasn’t all bad.

2 Stussy tee shirts that he wore in the early 90’s possibly Nirvana at Festival Hall and looked like he was proud to have them back. So if you see them in the Northern Suburbs ask the wearer where he got them from.
