Meet the brilliant fictional characters who have become timeless classics in the world of children's books
Born Toyland, 1949
Defining moment "What's your name?" shouted Big Ears. "I haven't got one," said the nodding man. "What do you suppose my name ought to be?" "Noddy, I should think!" said Big Ears. "Yes! I think your name is Noddy, little nodding man."
Why we love Noddy
* His sartorial elegance: who else would wear red shoes with blue ribbons, a polka-dot neckerchief and a blue hat with a bell?* The Fifties' quaintness of the original stories, penned by the inimitably prissy Enid Blyton (without the lashings of ginger beer).
* He has a yellow open-top sports car.
* The politically incorrectness of his friend's name - and they haven't succumbed!
Noddy Goes to Toyland by Enid Blyton is published by HarperCollins
