Why do we bother buying toys?!

Pierre's been getting creative with the contents of the recycling box !

Two boxes stuck on top of each other and four pie trays held on with brass fasteners so the wheels really turn and he was in seventh heaven !

Time to get painting - when it's dry, he has big ideas about adding windows with Peppa Pig driving ! 

How's that for a cheap afternoon's entertainment ?!
