(Didn't you desperately want to get into advertising after graduating and utterly fail to get anywhere, Alice? Why yes I did actually.)
One of the V&A's most popular exhibits is Tippoo's Tiger, a Victorian mechanical, musical toy from India which shows a British soldier getting horribly mauled by a smiley tiger.
The tiger has been a mainstay of the gifte shoppe for some time, with postcards, erasers and cardboard replicas on sale. Today we discovered that he's now available in soft toy form. I had to have one.
It is possible that I possess too much plush. But I know at least 2 LJ Friends who will assure me that that's not possible.
