So I had reason to reminisce about a childhood toy of mine recently; Octons. Do you remember them? I had forgotten what they were called and could find no reference to them online until the miracle of twitter helped me out and the lovely @justinthewoods showed me this post. I became more determined than ever to find some.
I should have known to just call my Mum in the first place; as luck would have it, she had kept mine all these years and here they are. I photographed the inside of the box too just because it's ridiculous and made me laugh.
