Whippet Grey is a catalogue of curiosities from kitchen ephemera to Lycian bracelets. Whenever I flick through I always think what fun their buyers must have had on their shopping trips.
Clockwork Colorado Beetle £6.50
Wind-up this colorado beetle and watch her crawl. Put her on a table and she won’t fall off. The antennae feel for any edges and she turns around just in time.
Obviously don't buy this for any offspring of potato farmers. They may fail to see the joke.
