Giant ladybirds

From the Chadds of Lowestoft Gift Book, early 1970s. One can only speculate about the amount of high-grade pharmaceuticals that the creative team at Chadds of Lowestoft must have imbibed during the brain-storming session for their gift book.

The only other people to have ever seen a blue fluffy policeman helping a family of giant ladybirds across the road were Hunter S Thompson and Carlos Castaneda.

The ladybirds are simply made out of red and black pom poms, with pipecleaner legs. "The Fuzz" (as it says on his flag), has a knitted body, with felt hat. His badge is made out of a milk-bottle top.

Far out, man.
