A desktop bus and other small Volkswagens (toys)

With the holiday season upon us, our bus is sitting in the garage stocked with wrapped boxes holding trinkets and bobbles soon to be placed under the tree.  It is an appropriate time to post a couple of gifts we received last fall and a couple that will soon surprise the little ones.  Happy Holidays and have a great New Year!

First up is a blue T1 Stiftebox (pencil box) given to me after my parents-in-law visited Germany last Fall.  It makes a great desk accessory at work.

Like the real thing, a little assembly is required.

Happily, I turned the assembly part over to my 6-year old.

Assembly would have taken all of 5 minutes if Papa hadn't insisted on photographing every step!

The Christmas gifts.  The bug/bus and lift are blatant advertising for our FLAPS, but I couldn't resist.  We could always use another 23-window.

Can’t have Christmas around here without a VW or two under the tree. The ’67 bug/’66 bus and autolift are blatant advertising for our FLAPS, but I couldn’t resist- we could always use another 23-window (’60 bus on the right).  All three are MK2 products – the same as the beetles we gave them last year.  The hood opens on the beetle and the deck lids open on all 3.
