Lucky Lidl girl!

Look what she’s getting for Christmas:

lidlvacuum

A lovely vacuum cleaner!

A cooker!

lidlcooker

lidlbust

And a styling bust. What? Didn’t these used to be called Girls’ World?

When I was a young mother this sort of advertising enraged me. Tsk! Girls doing housework while the boys get fun experiment kits! I’ve mellowed, and accept that girls (and quite a lot of boys) love playing with these toys. Wonderful Posy Simmonds said it all back in 1982.
