Miniature key

Image
With most of the obscure items I come across I tend to look them up on Google if I don’t know what they are already or want to find out more about them. As for this one all I know is it’s a key. I thought it belonged to Barbie doll for example but it didn’t, and as there are an infinite amount of toys out there I gave the search up pretty quickly otherwise I’d be there for hours!  

Arm belonging to a robot

I’m suspecting this is an arm belonging to a robot or an action figure.  

Charm Bracelet

As I mentioned earlier with another similar find bracelets and rings too are very commonly lost items. This one being particularly nice so I’ve advertised it on a local lost and found website.

I’m often coming across these and like to pick them up as some can be quite interesting. This one I suspect belongs to a medical person as on the reverse there is information about checking for unconsciousness in patients.  

Kinder Surprise Empty Egg shell

These are fairly common, just packaging for the ‘surprise’ inside the chocolate egg; besides kids don’t want something inedible and once the surprise has been put together it can’t be rehoused within its shell. Even less common, although I’ve found at least two with the ‘surprise’ inside and intact.

‘ L aughing G as’ canisters found in city Found two of these metal bottle shaped canisters not far from the city. They’re laughing gas or hippy crack as they contain nitrous oxide. If inhaled could be fatal. They’re meant to be used by the medical profession to numb the pain of patients. Artists Gilbert and George’s exhibition in London 2014 bought these to my attention as they feature a lot round where they live in Whitechapel, East London.
