If only the politicians could hear their names and policies mentioned in dolls play and bathtub discussions here! I wonder what Billy and Elijah would say if they had a chat about government just now? Would it help me decide how to vote?

Edible rocks are an awesome idea!

My girls loved the Hannah books when they were younger! We were lucky enough to have the chance to talk to the author, Libby Gleeson, about them

Re Butterfly's comment - an anti-Abott ad came on the other day and Snowy informed me he 'doesn't like Mr Abott'. Then, quietly, 'and I don't like Julia either..'

Snowy would like to have Billy's Moshi address btw :)

Are the Three Investigators still in print? I loved those books as a kid, along with the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden.

Kate - I'm not sure if they're still in print. This is an antique from when I was a kid :)
