Morning, team x this little toy museum in fitzrovia got me thinking about toys i loved when i was small. i remember a fisher price advert for a little kitchen, where a girl apparently whipped up some baked beans on the stove then served them up to her parents... i wanted it so much. but it was not to be. instead i entertained myself for hours with my lego, strawberry shortcake (and of course, custard), battlecat, guess who and she-ra. natch. what were your favourite toys & companions?
