When we unpacked Bert's old leather suitcase, we were surprised to find nothing in it that we might pack to go away with. We then discovered that Bert did not have any toys.
Over the next few weeks we are going to rectify this and find out about Victorian toys so we can send Bert something special for Christmas.
Our first challenge was to make a home made bear.
Here we are starting our own bear, cat or rabbit stuffed toys. It was hard work but we learnt to be patient and take our time to make our stitches small and neat.
