Owling around

Hoot1, originally uploaded by curbside style.

Meet Hoot, my daughter Ada's second best friend and one member of our wee owl collection. Hoot was made by British Toy designer Kristin Baybars in the late 60's under the 'Ostrobogolous Toys' brand for Kalpatch Ltd and was featured in the British Design 1969 Journal. He's had a bit of repair work done and I've had to re-attach his wings once or twice but he still looks pretty good for a lad in his Forties no?
