the wandering zippy ...

I discovered a great competition on Times Online, called Wandering Bears, entries to be in soon to win a 3ft Hamleys Noel teddy worth £199 in time for Christmas. For 18 months roving reporter Syd the Bear has been beaming us pictures of himself on his travels around the world, taking in many of the most famous landmarks on the planet. The aim of the competition is to send in entries of your bear in a holiday pose situation. Click on the link above and take a look at the pictures in the gallery, they are really amusing. Unfortunately Zippy pictured above in sunny Egypt, from the children's TV programme Rainbow, cannot be entered into the competion because he isn't a bear!



After seeing Zippy on his travels, I had a rummage around in my photo drawer for my childhood autograph book, I remembered having these signatures. I remember Geoffrey, Rod, Jane and Zippy from Rainbow appearing at the opening ceremony of our school fete when I was kid, I can't remember whether George and Bungle turned up, I didn't manage to get their autographs if they did!

Do you think I could get any money for these on ebay!

:-D That is class! Just looking at Zippy in a normal pose makes me giggle. Rainbow was so good. I think that your autographs are probably worth a fortune! I bet there's loads of people who'd like them!
