My mum's got some baubles like that too. They're like 100 years old or something apparently, passed down the generations. They're made of this really thin glassy substance, so brittle that they break really easily. :(2

If my Mum had some baubles like that she'd be my Dad.

Only one of ours survives to this day - all the others got smashed over the intervening 40 years :bawl:

I think I might have some glass baubles somewhere, that have been passed down through my family for generation after generation.

I think I might have some plastic ones, filled with sherbert, from the 1970s. :shifty:

What was the reasoning behind those I wonder.

"Break the jagged shards of glass to retrieve the sherbet, children". :happy:

The sherbet isn't in the glass ones. It's in soft plastic ones. :happy:
