An interesting little package arrived in the post yesterday, all the way from China. Robot Lilliput, who is just under 7cm tall, waddles along for a few steps with the aid of a clockwork motor. He is made of tin in the tradition of older toys, but would not be recommended as a toy these days; he is described as a mechanical collectible gift.
The most amazing thing is the price . . . just £2.69 including delivery! I’m certain it would cost me nearly that in postage to send him back to his birthplace.
