Three things you didn’t realise you need this summer…

But you really do need all of them.

We are here to tell you that while you may think you have everything you need to make this summer amazing… you don’t!

That’s right. Lloyds is the home of bargains, incredible classic cars and also, the weird and the wonderful.

We have three unique items that are going under the hammer this month that are absolute must-haves… you just haven’t thought of them yet!

Jurassic Park Reproduction

Wanting to add more ‘bite’ to your party, event or promotion?

This road-registered jeep is a reproduction of the famous ‘staff cars’ featured in the iconic Jurassic Park film.

The best part is the trailer that is home to a fully animatronic T-Rex (named Gary) that moves and roars. Gary can be controlled by a remote or for the ultimate surprise, a sensor.

This truly is one of the most amusing things we have sold at auction and is definitely a one-of-a-kind opportunity for us, but also the winning bidder.

This eye-catching replica is an ex-hire prop and has been used for everything from kids’ birthday parties to weddings.

But one of the main uses for this unique vehicle is to create a prize winning formal entrance, one that will never be forgotten!

Creating this was a true labour of love for our vendor but after a year of creating memories for others, he is ready to part ways and start a new project.

Is this your new daily driver? Or maybe it will just be an amazing feature at your house for the kids and their friends.

Inflatable Slide – Wet or Dry

Christmas Day just got THAT much better…

This awesome inflatable slide features a fun 42 degree drop and a bold colourful design and has only been in operation for a total of 100 days.

If you have a body of water on your property, you can slide straight into it this summer. Imagine all the members of the family racing each other down this ripper of a slide!

In the height of summer, hook up the hose or a water pump and keep it cool and flowing all afternoon long. What a bonus that it is configured for water recycling!

And then keep the good times flowing throughout the colder months by using it simply as a dry inflatable slide. No need to slide into water as it has plenty of slide at the bottom to stop you.

This device is Design Verified through Safework in South Australia so it can be used commercially.

Perhaps this could be the finishing touch to an amazing home obstacle course or just an amazing business venture this summer.

2009 Four Winns V335 Cruiser

If fun family activities aren’t quite your scene yet, then you must check out this 2009 Four Winns V335 Cruiser.

This is one for cruising the Gold Coast canals with all your best mates, sipping on cold drinks with the music pumping.

Sail from South Stradbroke through Moreton Bay and up to North Stradbroke Island for the best summer days of your life!

Make it the best New Year’s Eve yet and watch the fireworks up and down the coast on this luxury vessel.

With room for four people to sleep, plus two showers, a toilet, you can bring your besties with you.

This is basically a hotel on water with all the creature comforts like a fully functioning kitchen, air conditioning and a flat screen TV.

Forget booking holidays again, this boat is everything you could ever need for the ultimate summer trip.
