The Gallery: Planes, Trains & Automobiles

I have a small obsession that I've kept hidden until now. However, when Tara announced last Friday that The Gallery theme this week would be:

Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Basically transport; that can be bicycles, motorbikes, camper vans, motor homes or jet skis. Interpret it any way you like and then come back and let's get that motor running.

I let out a little squeal and knew that it was time for my obsession to be revealed.

You know those 50p ride-ons at supermarkets? Yeah, it's those.

I'm not quite sure why I'm obsessed with them, I'm not even sure there were that many around when I was a nipper, but I think it stems from not going on them very much as a child. Who knows? All I do know is that I have to keep a stash of 50p coins in a separate section in my purse!

And this is why…

The truly scary thing is that this is only about half the photos…

I think I need help, please send it in the form of 50p coins.

    Lol you do take a LOT of photos of him i wonder how many 50p coins you have spent on those rides over the last couple of years?? All worth it though to see the joy it brings him :)
    I like how he is wearing his shades in the fire engine and hello Burton!!

    That is a brilliant collage! Genius idea, I am so mean and don't let mine do it that often, but it would be £1.50 a time if I did! They are fantastic though and such a special treat. You are making such special memories for him. x

    You are making me want to do a post like this :-)
    Don't know that I would have quite so many photos though, but I will certainly give it a shot as soon as I get a mo.
    Great collage, and lucky Boy.

    OMG. You are obsessed woman! PMPL! Definitely something that you give up doing when you have a few kids. Although I do have photos of them all crammed onto one- sharing a 50p ride!

    Woah. That is a serious addiction to 50p rides you have there!! Absolutely worth every second to see how happy he is though :D

    Wow, that is some coleection you have there. Both my elder grils were terrifed of them. The would beg and beg to go on them an as soon as they started they would scream to get off.

    OMG you really weren't kidding when you said you were obsessed we're you!!!?!! Blimey I am a meanie as I always say no! A great collection of photos though and it will make a lot of people laugh!

    Wow – you are slightly obsessed with them! My son loves sitting on them but, the ripe old age of three and a half has no idea that they move if you put money in! I'm so tight!

      I can't get the comment option to work properly on your post so please excuse my comment via this way! What a fantastic day out you gave him, it's something he'll remember forever, my husband still has photos of him in a formula one style car at Silverstone from when he was 13.

    Fantastic, and what a lucky boy! Do it while you can, they are big far too soon (but their longing lasts far past the point they can fold their legs in….)

    Haha omg!! You should sooo go to Blavkpool and just walk up the Golden mile. There are loads and loads of these and you'd be in kiddie ride heaven. Love that collection of pics!
