Apparently, there’s lots of fun for everyone in the Big Yellow Teapot, or at least so the television advert for this toy would have us believe. Â I would probably say that not everyone would find it that much fun, but certainly most toddlers would have a ball.
Unsurprisingly the Big Yellow Teapot was a teapot that was big and coloured yellow, but this wasn’t for sticking your Tetley or PG Tips in for a bit of a brew. Â Nope, the Big Yellow Teapot can only be described as a teapot shaped dolls house. Â Quite why a teapot would be a good place for little plastic people to live in I’m not sure, but as houses go it was pretty well equipped.
Like most houses it had windows and a front door, but it also had a giant handle on one side and a spout on the other, which doubled as a slide. Â You could poke the little people in the spout and they’d shoot out into the main body of the teapot, knocking the little plastic chairs and tables flying. Â Sticking with playground fun, the lid of the teapot lifted up to reveal a little merry go round for the tiny occupants of the house to spin round on.
Just imagine if we did actually live in houses shaped like this? Â It would make estate agent house descriptions quite entertaining…
