FREE toys for boys (or girls)

Fiona from Henderson

I have quite a few trucks and other vehicles (cars, trains etc ...) to give away to a little boy who doesn't have a great deal of toys.
They have been loved and played with so many times, but they still have so much life in them. Too good to throw away.

I have quite a few trucks and other vehicles (cars, trains etc ...) to give away to a little boy who doesn't have a great deal of toys.
They have been loved and played with so many times, but they still have so much life in them. Too good to throw away.
I also have a couple of stuffed toys, one very large one and one cute dragon, there is also a duck puppet.
I may also find a few figurines to throw into the mix.
Please, they really need to go to someone who has a little boy or 2 who really doesn't have many toys.

We were just there and loading and unloading stuff. Just gone inside and there was some gap when phone was stolen from black Van. Phone is locked, Find my Phone enabled, Location tracked, IMEI is blocked not so it is quite hard to use. Phone is showing offline since then and was switched off out on street. I had lots of photos on the phone. It was probably someone local walking. I have cctv footage and some pictures but not posting here in hope to get it back. If the phone is returned in the Letterbox then will provide $50 voucher in the letterbox in following days and will also withdraw the police file. Just adding some face masked photos.

😀 Hey Neighbours, I'm Anthea, the founder and managing director of Lifestyle Happy Place. I've lived in Auckland for the past 20 years, originally from sunny Hawkes bay.

😀 My goal in life is to be a person who is consistently moving forward in all aspects of life which meant to avoid staying stagnated in anything. I had realised that after 20 years in the healthcare industry I had done exactly that. So I went in search of a better way, to switch gears professionally and I found my solution.

😀 Together with my husband, we started a business that allows us to live where we choose to live, work the hours we want, travel and explore the world with our children in a way that I could only have dreamed about as a kid.

😀 We are passionate about working with mums & dads who want to create this level of freedom and flexibility in their own lives working a business of their own from anywhere.

😀 Our community of like-minded, self-motivated men and women all have one thing in common.

......"To create an extraordinary life filled with choices"......

There are no have to's in this opportunity, just helping people to move forward in their pursuit of happiness.
