Yeah we're going to be so neat, dancing to the Lundby beat

One of the Holy Grails for Lundby dolls house collectors is the pool, which was only available from 1972 to 1974.

I was incredibly lucky to be given one a couple of years ago by friend Miggs, who found it with a pile of Lundby furniture in an op shop in Wellington, New Zealand. I still have very clear memories of getting to the bottom of the box of Lundby stuff and squealing "YOU FOUND ME A POOL!" She just thought it was some sort of packing. I was a happy girl indeed.

Alas, my pool was without its ladder and diving board. Until now. In an international co-production a We Love Lundby Club member in the UK is selling replica diving boards made by a collector in the USA. With a feel good twist as all proceeds going to support cancer research. And my board arrived yesterday.

Now I just have to track down the correct metal ladder for it. And the other Lundby Holy Grails I don't yet have...
