I'm not sure these would be too effective in this upcoming freezing cold weather. But still, no one complained back then, the very popular, candlewick.

I've got one the same as the orange bottom one in our spare room. Used to be on my bed when I was a kid.

I'm sure we have all seen this at some time, not so much now though. Did it even work, I guess it must have!

What I want to know is what happened to Shreddies. Years ago you would get several stuck together like a sixer, not anymore all individually cut, no more excitement in tipping them out.

Excellent addition to this thread Andy, Top Trumps! I have a pack or two also. This set has always stuck in my mind from back then, and quite apt now as I believe there was a tragedy yesterday with a Red Arrow plane/pilot -

I had that pack way back when. Might get a few more packs at some point, so I can try and beat my Grandsons :D

Yes a Red Arrow did crash at Anglesey yesterday, killing an engineer :(
