At the first of today’s workshops at the British Library, children in the age-group 5-7 brought their favourite toys to talk about.
There were two little creatures called Sita and Gita.
A boy made up a story about how squeaky Sita and jingly Gita walked into his room while he was asleep. He was frightened, but understood when he woke up.
There was a Lego space-shuttle. A girl made up a story about how the shuttle went to a place where aliens experimented on humans.
There was a pink-roofed house with Lego girls.
The house was, of course, haunted. The theme is Creepy House.
And there was Croco – a crocodile whose teeth were yellow because no one ever brushed his teeth.
What a delightful hour I had!
