    Did you buy teeny tiny portions of each? I hope you got some cheese biscuits too. That's genius :cool:

    We have two - a very festive Playmobil police one, and an even more festive Cars 2 one :rolleyes: Actually I say 'we', I don't have any, they're both the foal's

    Yeah. Lots of little bits, not tiny bits though as I'm roping Chemistry into the idea so there's enough for him as well.

    This thread needs more pictures.
