Anyone of a certain age will remember the brilliant programme Playdays that made daily stops along a bus route to different characters each week. My favourite character was on Monday’s episode – the Why Bird. So imagine my excitement when the tweet led to a video combining a childhood favourite with my modern day love for stationery!
Fascinating and educational! Happy Friday!
