Years ago I had a brilliant toy for Christmas. It was a long plastic box with a handle and you opened it up and it was an office. It had little drawers with things like paperclips in. A pretend phone a clip board, all that fitted in.
I know my ds (4) would love sonething like this but all I can find is tiny ones made out of cardboard that are post offices.
Has anyone seen one anywhere? (Wish my mom and dad had kept mine!)

I had this!!!! I absolutely loved it, but unfortunately I've never been able to find a replica sad.

It was a wonderful thing wasn't it? And a little secret compartment under the clipboard!

I had the post office one! It was my favourite hinges for ages.

My ds (and me ) would love to play with one. They should bring them back!

Omg I had the post office one too- I know remember the scales and I loved it! I think my sister had the office one. What is the middle one in the picture?

Not quite the same, but this toy post office set is pretty good (I think it's the same as when dd was small - amazon reviews still seem to rate it highly.)

Thanks sadik, I made ds a post office bag lst year so it's more a general office I want for him. So glad I've bought back memories for everyone. I was so chuffed when I found a photo of it!

There is one on ebay but they want £25 for it which is an awful lot!

Or this one, again with postage it would be £33 so very expensive though!
