Project 365 #43: 120209 A Well Travelled Gift

    Newer Older

    I was out at the flicks for two back to back films tonight (Valkyrie and Revolutionary Road trivia fans!) so just had a chance to grab a very quick pic of something close to hand.

    This time, it was the very, very cool Christmas gift that Laura got from John the Nurse. It's a toy tube train with pull back and go motorised wheels!

    Laura is a tube nut so it went down a storm. The gift is well travelled, as it was posted in the North East in December to sit...somewhere...for two months before arriving in Helsinki where it was promptly diverted back over here.

    So it's a well travelled gift! (And the first person to point out that it was undboubtedly manufactured in China will get a VERY well earned slap!)

      Yep, Made in China.

      It is certainly different from the usual scarf and gloves as a present. For one thing you'd be unlikely to get two of them.

      I can't help but feel it has a strange look on its face though - maybe it is the eyes.

      The eyes are a bit... strange, if not a bit creepy, I admit that.

      It looks like something out of Budgie the little Helicopter! Very cool.

      Isn't this off Underground Ernie, the cartoon about the underground? (I think of Laura everytime the kids make me watch it! lol)

      Yes it is. :D
