Fun4All Checklist

A couple of weeks ago I did a checklist of the miniature board games and other toys produced by Basic Fun (you can find it HERE). This week I'm following it up with similar offerings produced by Fun-4-All, before they went bust in 2004. One day I will catch them all! ;)

Big Wheel

Talking keyrings - there are tons of different designs of these.


Jigsaw Puzzle
There is also a Simpsons version.


Lincoln Logs

Lite Brite



Pet Rock

Play-Doh Fun Factory

See it in action HERE.

Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots
You could get keychains of the individual robots too.



Tip It

You could also get a fire engine.

There were eight different versions; read more HERE.


Boo Roo and Tigger Too


  1. If they went belly up, is anyone else producing these items now?

  2. Hi, I'm glad you've made this list. I'm a collector of both Basic Fun and Fun-4-All myself. In fact your last image of the UNO card game is actually from my flickr :D You've posted a few I'm still looking for as well: Simon, Jacks, Rock Em Sock Em Robots, Wheelie, Pet Rock, Transformers collection. Some I can still find on ebay like Simon and some of the transformers, but they seem to be getting harder and harder to find. Best of luck!

    1. Oops I meant Big Wheel, not Wheelie.

    2. :D It was equal parts fun and depressing to put together. Fun because it's all so cool, depressing because there are so many I still need to collect! Hehe. I'm just a sucker for anything miniature - but at least it means the collection takes up less space...

    3. I am too! lol I love anything miniature :P I think it's mostly because of the cuteness factor, or maybe it's the ability to carry them around wherever you go, either way they are definitely a fun and enjoyable thing to collect. I also follow Museum of Working Miniatures on YouTube (which you link to for the Rebound key chain), his videos are how I found out about some of the more rare items. It's always exciting to meet other collectors online :D

    4. I love that channel! My bank balance doesn't though - I'd never come across some of the miniatures he had featured before. They went straight on the wishlist. ;) Definitely - it's so great to hear what other people have found!

  3. Oh my a blast from the past, I can remember a few of these

    Thank you for linking up to #ToyTuesday

  4. It seems everywhere I turn at the moment I am seeing things from my childhood, making the impending big 40 even more apparent! Thanks for linking up #ToyTuesday

    1. Every time I turn on any of the 'vintage' music channels or whatever I feel ancient!

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Click the pictures below to find full cover guides to various teen magazines (primarily collated to make scale miniature magazine covers but I figure they'll also be useful for collectors and anyone into media history) and scans from my own magazine collection. I've also got a couple of kids' books I didn't want to part with - The Squirrel and Little Owl Book of Pets .

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
