I love finding vintage goods in their original packaging – it nearly alway means that whatever is inside the box is in really good condition, which is definitely the case with today’s Noddy ‘Nite Lite’! In fact I don’t think it’s ever been used before! It was fairly cheaply made though, so is a bit naive – not the most refined Noddy I’ve ever seen, but still quite delightful! And I love the “Made in South Africa and Proud of it” printed onto the top of the Illumina box – I think it’s a better slogan than “Proudly South African” – it sounds slightly defiant!
A great display piece for a child’s bedroom – but be warned, these night lights emit a slightly crazy (and I think rather scary!) glow when they’re turned on at night!
