Just an idea I was kicking around with as I tried to think of images for Father's Day. My Dad used to do this with Scalectrix. He'd buy us the track and the cars and spend ages setting it up just so he could play with it. He did the same with the lego except he'd let us play- he'd just keep the best pieces as he was making a spaceship or moonbuggy. Nowadays he doesn't have us as an excuse so he buys Dinky toys because they are 'collectable'. Awww, bless.
