brilliant
29 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I too used to rush home from school to watch it. I did actually have 2 tapes full of the episodes which i do wish i'd kept but kids TV was so good back then that I soon taped over them with other things. The song only human sounds great that episode was my favourite for ages. I still have the ink thief book but sadly I'll never see the TV series again. It's full of fun characters representing the things that go bump in the night. The story is basically about two kids that move to a new town and while exploring the area come across an abandoned toy shop that's where the magic begins. I can't remember a lot of the characters names but i liked the cat i think he was called toddy and the orange guy that got turned into a doll towards the end he was so cute.
