About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

W is for more Wellingtonians

I knew I'd seen some pink ones! I had them in one of the other boxes all the time...

These are again; non-Giant nappies, in yellow, red and pink. The horse they came with is the one I call 'Remould' but better than the ones we looked at a few weeks ago, so I guess earlier production by the same people, but the limbers are the poor one, so when I sort them all out I suspect we'll find they come somewhere between the two sets looked at the other day.

The base is clearly blank, the limber lacks the Giant moniker and I've shown the damage to the face of the box, it looks like it might have been another 'MADE IN HONG KONG' or an attempt at it as I've never seen them with that there, only the mould damage.
