There is a strong threat of snow in the late afternoon air here in West Yorkshire. Blue boy is hankering for a run on the frozen hill.
Its freezing enough for snow. It is the first of December tomorrow after all.
I don't specifically recall many toys that were made for snow when I was a kid.
The exception were those ski-based uniforms that Action Man and his chums wore when the weather turned frosty.
I can vividly remember sending my Arctic Patrol Action Man, all dressed in white, skiing down the slope of our snow-covered tarmac drive. He managed a decently long snow plough before veering off into the verge for some apres-ski.
It was a great sight seeing him fly down the powdery incline with his white rifle strapped to his back and the glint of the just-come-on sulpher street light in his green goggles.
Those skis worked really well and the Arctic Patrol kept the wolves from the door over many winters in the Sixties.
Did you have an Arctic Patrol Action Man or indeed any other snow toys?
