Father Christmas

Father Christmas was the first animated character my Mum bought when her Grandchildren started arriving in the mid seventies.

(You can probably tell that by looking at the colour of the fake fur clothing!)

He would take a few steps, stop, then ring his bell, stop, take a few more steps …. until someone turned him off or the battery went flat!

(He’s a man …. not able to multi-task.)

Even with a new battery Father Christmas doesn’t move anymore unless we pick him up and put him somewhere else. The grandchildren wore him out before the great grandies could see him in action. He came to live with me after Mum died and has become a memorable part of the Santa collection.
