Top of the Pops

Just before Christmas last year I came across this beautiful book in Vinnie's for $2, it was brand new and a really lovely find.







It is more a work of art than a standard pop-up book...




This is a new book, not vintage, and is available on Amazon, I would really recommend it, my boys' eyes light up as each beautifully crafted page pops into life. This is definitely one I would have bought anyway if I hadn't found it and definitely one to be kept up out of reach except for story time until the boys are older :-)

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and all your dreams and wishes come true. I would like to thank everyone who has read/followed/commented on my blog since I started in January, it has been such fun! My Blogoversary is next month and I am planning a little giveaway, so hopefully I will see you in the new year!

It's a great find. I imagine someone put it there for someone just like you to find and it's all part of the Christmas magic.

I was going to say it's in amazing condition for vintage - those cut-outs are so intricate!
