Playschool's Humpty under hammer

By Staff Reporter

Humpty is going under the hammer with one of the original dolls made for children's TV show Playschool expected to fetch four figures at auction.

The 53cm-high egg-shaped toy, which is being sold by Bonhams at Oxford next week, is one of three made for the BBC show which ran for more than 20 years from the mid-sixties. Bonhams says the doll, valued at £1,200, was "an important member of the Playschool cast, taking part in almost every single episode".
