For the wretched toy of my youth today has been found:
See I said it looked geeky and was red, blue and yellow!
And his name? Maximus!
In the loft clear-out no Ladybird books have been found. :o( It is a total mystery, but amongst the masses of items to go through, an old Green Shield stamp catalogue was unearthed and what did it contain?? Well a name at last for Maximus and quite a few other familiar items!
Oh my word - one of my all time favourites right through to my mid-teens! I never got bored of this - well OK it was really tedious cutting out the circles to start designing on, but faaaaaaaar superior to spirograph. :oD
MY Crayola caddy - the big square one... Now this was obviously wasted on the child in this photo as I remember often resorting all of my crayons into colour order (look at the illogical mess hers are in!) and making sure there were nice sharpish points to them - no dull edges!
Had completely forgotten about this until I saw it - I remember the stethoscope worked really well, and the syringe was huuuuuge!
So that's what it was called.... tsk...
