Got this for my sister who collects such fluffy things, she was made up ! My memory of Bagpuss takes me back to my school days, when a flu bug would see me allowed off school for a week or so. There I lay, swathed in blankets, my Mum fussing about me holding a Lucozade bottle, or Ribena if my Dad had won on the horses, when I would suddenly hear the opening lines of the sagacious Bagpuss, to be soon joined by his several mice friends, what BLISS ! I soon settled back down, my Mum would quit her fussing for bloody Crown Court was on next ! Ah well, back to my plan to see if I could blag a few more days off school. Was that not the wise message Bagpuss was telling his mice about ?
Ordered this as a gift for my daughter. It said "large" on the description so I wanted the larger one. When it arrived, the box it was in was tiny. I laughed at the thought of what the small bagpuss would be like. However, when I took the toy out of the box it unravelled into a substantially sized cuddly bagpuss! Absolutely lovely! Quite a magical nostalgic feeling all round the family. And the little story line when you press his mouth brought memories flooding back and a few moist eyes were seen all round! Great that the supplier used their brain and put it in a small box. Saving packaging costs - brilliant!
I am very happy with the Musical Bagpuss because it was a reasonable price, the expected size, the furry material was just what I wanted and the person I gave it to was pleased. The talking bit was good too. Would recommend this to anyone who remembers and loves the saggy old cat! Looks just like the one on TV years ago.
This was a present for my husband's 40th - he yawns a lot so is nicknamed Bagpuss! This is a superb toy - great price with the added bonus of it being musical. If you are looking for a Bagpuss don't go anywhere else.
I bought this product for my daughter as when she was a little girl she loved she loved Bagpuss and I couldn't afford one for her she now has a family of her own and was delighted with her surprise present.
