Whilst on my way to visiting my four Godchildren [is there such a word?] yesterday I stopped off to get them some sweeties. and chocs for my nephew.
I noticed in the comic rack an Octonauts Cbeebies magazine and was blown away by the free gift, a green flat car reminiscent of a Star Wars Hover Speeder.
I've been impressed with this magazine's free gifts for the last few years to be honest but at nearly five pounds an issue I've not taken the plunge.
Alas I can't find an image of this green Octonauts car but I think we'd all like it on Moonbase.
It puts me in mind of another toy I keep seeing online on Ebay, a similarly flat and lovely white Piano car driven by Schroeder of the Peanuts gang.
I've heard of Charlie Brown and Linus but don't recall Schroeder. I love this Aviva toy though. Its like an Aviva Snoopy in the Bath car I once found at a boot sale like this one pictured on picclick.
They all seem to be dated 1951 but that's clearly the comic strip date.
Wonder if they were a Sixties or Seventies toy line?
