Pretty much since cheap plastic was invented, there have been cheap plastic dress-up and accessory kits for kids that allow them to roam the neighbourhood as a nurse, a cowboy, a police officer, etc.
My, how things have changed.
Now, thanks to Woolworths and Chad Valley, we have cheap plastic dress-up and accessory kits for kids that allow them to roam the
neighbourhood house as a wizard.
And not just any old wizard in league with magical otherworldly forces, no… but instead, a wizard in league with the State of Israel!
UPDATE – Over at B3ta, some peeps remember a similar association involving Chorlton and the Wheelies: The show was sold to numerous countries around the world. However it was never sold to Israel after a graphic artist mistakenly drew a Star of David instead of a Pentangle on the front of the talking spellbook, which spoke with a Germanic accent.
