Christmas is coming – and you’re probably too skint to buy little Jemima the latest PlayConsole5 DVD mini-system. So, what better gift for a budding designer than a cardboard animated model from Flying Pig? Created by Rob Ive, the various cut-out-and-make characters include Cupid (above), Mexican Peck, Bob the Dog and Jungle Jim. Turn their handles and the models nod, wave, or position their arrows as appropriate. Hours of fun, and a craft lesson to boot. Order on-line at www.flying-pig.co.uk.
