    Default Anyone know what this toy is - or better still if once can be found!?

    Late 60s or early 70s. Used to have eight pieces but two were ripped off by my dog. Red and white on one side and blue and yellow on the other. I loved it. It would bend a click in to lots of shapes and it was a favorite. Now I have a son I want him to have one too! Cheers Graeme

    I don't know what brand it is - or what it's called - but I have one! I've never seen anything like it since I got it in the early 70s.
    Their light of pocket torch, of signal flare,
    Licks at the edge of unsuspected places,
    While others scan, under an arc-lamp's glare,
    Nursery, kitchen sink, or their own faces.

    Thanks to my mother and her nostalgia-object-retention policy...

    Fantastic - thank you Schulpher. Now whether I will ever find one I doubt but just having an answer gives me deep satisfaction. Best Graeme
