princely toys - scary toy

Watch this with children…

Originally broadcast on the BBC in 1976. One Man’s Private Kingdom Narrated by Gerald Harper.  Jack Donovan has a houseful and a life-full of Princely Toys. They are not strictly toys but a collection of magnificent automata – working models that will blow you a soap bubble, do you a trick or make you gasp at the audacity of their acrobatics. Any one of them alone would be a marvel, a priceless and irreplaceable memory of that 19th-century art which could accept nothing but the best – and could afford to pay for it. It’s a fair promise to say that you’ll be delighted, intrigued, baffled, amused, and maybe, just maybe, led back into that delicious dream-world which started with the first teddy bear.
