Halloween offering

Happy Halloween, one and all. Brought to you, especially for today, another unknown plastic offering, this time in the shape of a 3.5" Dracula. Ive been saving this little gem for a while. I believe he dates from the eighties.

Small plastic Giraffe seeks wheels!

Rather nice, seated Giraffe made from a soft rubbery plastic. My guess is he came with a car. He stands 35mm small, but with no makers mark, I haven't got a clue who the fella is!

Live action Tele Babar Part 2

A couple of years ago I posted some lovely Babar dominoes. They caused quite a stir over at do you remember blog. Apparently a lot of people remembered the TV show, and found the live action Babar frightening. I can't see it! For my money, the masks and costumes are magical and share links with the Theatre of the Bauhaus.

Not long after I posted the dominoes I was lucky enough to find these two hardback copies in English, taken from the TV series. The books are beautifully designed, and the stills from the show are fantastic.

You can watch a foreign language version of the Tele Babar TV show below.

Published by Methuen in 1969, the hard back books measure 248 x 300mm. As far as I can see there were three books in the series, the two here; Babar goes visiting, Babar Keeps Fit & Babar Learns to Drive.

An extra helping of Fisher Price Little People for Steve. Thanks for the thumbs up! Fisher Price Little People were originally made from wood and then later on, plastic. Its always a joy to find another member of the gang!
