In the age of Ipads, the noise of a typewriter isn't heard very often these days. There we were, on the way to school, when at the side of the road appeared a collection of objects and a sign 'please take, free to a good home'.
There was an exercise bike (I left that well alone, obviously!) and this...
amazingly, it still works! Could do with a new ribbon and the roller needs a clean, but the kids are fascinated by it.
Not to be left out though, Luke took a shine to, of all things, the empty box the typewriter had been propped up by, which he insisted on bringing home too...!
