In a previous and much younger life, I worked with children. I spent many millions of hours reading stories, playing games, cleaning sticky fingers, painting, etc. If one toy stood out in my mind, it would have to be the things produced by Fisher Price, particularly these little people. The boys frequently had the Fisher Price Garage, with the cool little petrol pump, the ramp and lift (elevator) and the turntable for rotating the cars. Cars are cool, there’s no doubt about that but what was quite fun was sending the little people down the ramp. Those people seemed to get everywhere, under the couch, in the fruit bowl, outside in the sand box….they turned up like those black cubes in the last Doctor Who - you were never quite sure if they had malicious intent. I like the little red haired girl with the pig tails and the scowling boy with the cap irritated me - you can’t stay mad forever. Oh the memories just looking at these brings back.
