I bought one of these for my nephew but before I could give it to him, Wenlock's 'All Seeing Eye' had spotted the leaflet on my kitchen table for an anti-Olympics protest on the day after the opening ceremony. Before I knew it, the building where I live was surrounded by a special armed Olympics police unit and now I'm banned from central Stratford's "Dispersal Zone" until late September.
This is a disaster as it means I can't visit my nephew at all now, or get to the supermarket. It takes an hour longer to get to work as I can't use Stratford station, a journey that'll be even longer in the summer. Worse, I'm stuck with this tiny, creepy figurine that watches my every move. Overall, I really can't recommend this toy - the massive security around here was going to be bad enough anyway, without it figuratively intruding into my home too.
