It all began on a family holiday in Yorkshire, spending time with my husband, our new baby son Henry (who was ten months old at the time) and our two ‘four-legged’ children! During this holiday, we stumbled across the most wonderful little toy shop. In the front window was ‘Percy Pup’ – which immediately drew me into the shop – and it was this little fellow that started me (without knowing it at the time) on this particular journey.
Percy Pup duly came home with us (well, that was inevitable!), along with many other toys for Henry to grow in to. They have lasted extremely well, considering the robust and rigorous testing they have experienced at the hands of my son. I dread to think how many miles poor Percy Pup has travelled around our kitchen, and how much faster he has become. Even now, as a six-year-old, if Henry gets his hands on this beautiful toy, Percy’s off at 60mph around the island, often on two wheels – poor pup!
Children aren’t young for very long and I can’t tell you how many precious memories toys like these can give not only your little ones, but also you as your loved ones grow up and develop throughout childhood.
