How Health and Safety has changed

Our daughter has a basket full of animals which used to belong to my beloved girlfriend.

Many of them were made in the 1970s and bear a copyright symbol as proof and they're in pretty good nick.

One thing I was struck by today, though, is how some of the animals could never be made today, as they were then.

Take the pictured crocodile – it has a movable mouth, opening its jaws and the teeth are phenomenally sharp for a toy.

You can then push the jaws shut around whatever they are clamped around – more often than not small fingers.

Mind you, it's brilliantly made, though!
