2022 birthday and Christmas present round up

Every year I am lucky to get at least a few Blytonian gifts between my December birthday and Christmas. In fact, each year I am amazed to still get Blytonian gifts as sometimes it feels as if those that know me have bought every readily available bit of merchandise already!

If you read my 2022 Christmas gift-guide then you might recognise this Yoshi purse, as I put it into the post and onto my own wish list!

Here’s a close-up of the Blyton book on it – Let’s Garden – which is easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it.

You also might recognise this magnet:

Which I also put on the list, but my mum appears to have bought me by sheer coincidence.

Here it is on the fridge, holding up one of Brodie’s pictures of a boat between a couple of lighthouses, and beside my Scrabble magnets which (when Brodie hasn’t been messing around with them) spell out a standard daily diet for Blyton’s characters.

Just to be clear, the magnets and picture have been on the fridge for a while, but I moved a bunch of other pictures, magnets, shopping lists etc out of the way to take this photo. And I cleaned the front of the fridge. Wouldn’t want to look like a ragamuffin on here.

My mum checked with Ewan before buying me this, and he thought I didn’t have the stamps. Well, I did, just not out on display. Though it was a good thing he said no, as I didn’t have the little sheet that came inside the envelope, or the set of postcards that came with it.

I’ll need to find some space in the hall for the postcards alongside all the others.

This was written by a member of my Enid Blyton Facebook group so when she shared it in there I added it to my wish list. I’ll hopefully review it in the next few weeks.

Did anyone else get anything Blyton-related last year?

    I did not get anything Blytonian. I think you are blessed to that extent.

    Looking forward the the ‘Plenty of Character’ review.

    I got ‘Before I Got To Sleep’ for my December birthday. One thing I was particularly chuffed about is that the birthday night prayer is the final prayer of the book, after the prayer for New year’s Eve – out of order for 99.7% of people. But not for me.

    The Poppy story book, the Blue story book, House at the Corner Armada, Six Bad Boys, and another big old hardback story book.
