  5. Did you get Rod Hull and Emu in America? If not then No 7 possibly looses something in translation, but what it looses in that it no doubt gains in comic value, but sad as it seems, there's many a British child of the '70's that would (still?) love an emu like that - you get to be as naughty as you want and blame it on the bird!

    1. My Mum made me an Emu. It got a lot of action, attacking people. If you haven't seen Emu in action...

    2. Rod Hull actually made the rounds in the states too...although I remember him always wearing a safari type outfit, as if he was some kind of Emu conservation expert. The funny thing is I actually still have a SANCTIONED Rod Hull emu puppet. Not as elaborate as the one he actually used, but it looks just like him, and I do the Schtick with my kids where Emu acts all affectionate and encourages the kids to pet him, and then proceeds to attack them when they aren't expecting it....they LOVE it.

  6. My best friend in high school made a cream colored knitwear kaftan using pattern #4, then promptly outgrew it, giving to me. I used it as a bathrobe until I wore it out. It was the best thing to put on (with nothing under it but aloe vera) after a bad sunburn.
