"As the day grew long and the sun fell in the sky, the giggling reel of teeter-totters, swings and round-abouts, hopscotch, tag and hide-and-seek gave way to more tranquil times sitting among circles of friends in the shade of old trees. The last few moments of yet another carefree, Summer day were spent with spiky Jacks and tangled knots of cats-cradles or playing Gypsy seers with our folded paper fortune-tellers.".
DESIGN DETAILS... The first layer of your delightful plaything offers friends, children, grand-children, lover... whoever... a choice of SEVERAL DISTINCTIVE DOGS. “Which is your favourite... the SWEET BOSTON TERRIER, LOYAL BORDER COLLIE, FUN-LOVING COCKER SPANIEL or the MAJESTIC ALASKAN MALAMUTE?” The next level asks “Would your dog enjoy a BONE, FRISBEE, a BONE or a WALK?” The final choice is between 4 coat colours... "Do you prefer BLACK, BLACK & TAN, TRI COLOR or SPOTS?” Then, with a flip of your hand (and the help of your Fortune-Telling booklet & the 8 charms which are inside your chartpack) you can delight them all with their ‘readings’. Will you advise them to "Believe in Yourself", prompt them to “Make a Wish” or simply say “I Love You?” A full alphabet (included in your chartpack) allows you to customize the 'heart' of your charmed and charming Fortune-Teller with your name and, perhaps, a dedication to the children you love.
