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.

A is for At Last!

Ages and ages and ages ago I mentioned this, I can't even remember the context now, but somewhere on the blog I said something like "...like the kissing dolls I think we've already looked at...", well; I'm not sure we ever did - so here they are!

Two hard styrene plastic 'bobble-heads' with magnets in the foreheads, as you push them past each other they snog...giggle...giggle...! 'Lots of Fun'? I don't think so, but mildly amusing the first time...things were a little slower and more innocent (on the surface) back in the 1950/60's.
