Bedtime stories

Monday, October 5th, 2009

In preparation for our new Child’s Play section on the H is for Home website, we’ve been collecting some lovely vintage children’s books.

Eye-catching colours & fab illustrations are often a good starting point for us.


We have a few series of books -  including…


Mr Men… here’s Mr Jelly in action from 1970s British TV


Thomas the Tank Engine… famously narrated by Ringo Starr!


Ladybirds

and the This is… series, illustrated by Miroslav Sasek, which is one of our particular favourites…

We were collecting these even before we had our new shop section in mind!

And this is our most recent acquisition…


It’s a 1960s listen & read-along book – complete with it’s original vinyl record!

Hope you’ve enjoyed a peek at things to come – we’ll let you know when our new section goes live.
