mostly for Carol

Just to clarify for Carol ... Fisher Price Little People have holes in their bottoms so they can sit on their Fisher Price Little People cars and seats and things. If they didn't have the holes, they would fall off. Only over the years the different types of people seem to have evolved and be non-compatible. See here. I believe that some of the earlier ones command quite high prices from collectors - they've been going for fifty years.

Hope that helps! :)

Today, we are going to a friend's house to do wiring/sewing - you can take a guess which of us is doing which. The children have blessedly gone to nursery. We're both exhausted - they still aren't sleeping very well and reveille was at ten to six this morning.

Gah.

  2. Now I wish I had saved some of those FP little people that populated my house years ago. I can't describe the joy of stepping on one in the dark in your bare feet. Usually while trying to sneak quietly out of a sleeping child's room.

  3. Carol - oh good, glad you are no longer boggling quietly :)
    Star - I have already had The Duplo Man Experience. It's debatable which is worse at 3AM - that, or a dead shrew's head stuck to the bottom of your foot.

  4. oh don't forget the hideousness that is the squelch of a mouses stomach when you step on it in the middle of the night!!
