Those awfully nice people at Playmobil must've read about Charlie and his bloomin' buses. Because - in an effort to stop him turning into the Hunchback of Notre Dame (UK version) as he crawls around the floor with his four-wheeled toys - they've sent him a nice toy helicopter! So now we're flying high (as well as crawling low) - although the transport theme continues. But it has more advantages than merely encouraging him to stand upright (or even stretch towards the ceiling). Oh yes. Because - although he hasn't said it yet - I'm sure that when he does it won't cause anything like the same embarrassment or offence that 'big buh' has created. What possible misinterpretation is 'helicopter' open to? How rude can that word sound when shouted out in town? Exactly! So we're safe at last. Aren't we?
