three vintage children's jigsaws: red London double decker bus, Magic Roundabout characters and Trumpton characters

We had a bit of a jigsaw bonanza at the market last week.

It started with this gorgeous London bus dating from the 1960s…

Then we found a couple of classic children’s TV jigsaws.

First up is Trumpton with Captain Snort, Doctor Mopp and Windy Miller to name just a few. Who remembers the firemen’s roll call? Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble & Grub!

Followed by The Magic Roundabout – Dougal, Dylan, Ermintrude and friends.

Ahhhh… the memories come flooding back from our Watch with Mother days in the late 60s & early 70s.
