This review by Pat Posner.
The publisher reckons...
A collection of delightful and insightful poems about traditional and contemporary toys - from teddy bears and dolls to wendy houses, building bricks and - electronic gadgets. The range of poetry tackles playing with, sharing, losing and outgrowing favourite toys as well as the imaginary games we play with them.
