Is that a crab's claw I can see in that pile??

Well spotted Aaron, I hadn't noticed, but on zooming in to the full res photo I find it is. They are not totally hung up on blue objects, as I have found bowers with yellow-green flowers as decoration when they are available. But in plastic objects, blue colour seems to be the big drawcard.

That's amazing. "Hmm I think I need this old crab claw added to my collection of junk to attract a nice lady!"
