Sometimes shards of memories stutter back to mind like old satellites.
One landed this week as I half-remembered a small toy from my yoof.
It was a miniature metal bird-cage with a plastic bird sat inside on a perch. Nothing unusual there. The neat bit was the rubber cage bottom, which when pushed up and down with a short metal pin it whistled and peeped like a little canary.
It might not have even been a toy at all but rather classed as one of those oddities known as fancy goods back then [do they still exist?].
Did you have anything like this? Were they made in Hong Kong.
