Sticky Back plastic. Here's one I made earlier
8 April 1999 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

Blue Peter is a British institution. EVERYONE has been brought up on it's mix of sticky back plastic, papier-mache, toilet rolls and pipe cleaners. Everyone has tried to make things that come out as the presenters "here's one I made earlier" efforts. (Cheating presenters). They also get the large sections of the British children population to raise large amounts of money each year. It's simply unique. And uniquely British.
