About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

C is for Crescent Children's Ward

Quite uncommon, due to their being made out of  poor batches of Zamac/Mazac which is notorious for breaking-up and crumbling, they've obviously been well looked after!

There was a Matron figure in a darker pinafore in larger sets, and I suspect the blankets are replacements, the originals should be squarer - apparently - and these are a modern sort of nylon towelling? You will see if you click on the image that the kids and the bedside-cabinets are all on the way out, but they're here for a while now, whatever happens to them and the beds and adults have kept their integrity.
