  • The footage in this clip is shot in two different locations.

    The first 43 seconds are at the Harrogate International Toy Fair. This ran from 10-15 January 1970.

    From 00:44 though, we move to the "Play Orbit" exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts on The Mall, London. This exhibition ran from 28 November 1969 to 15 February 1970.

    "C/U tumbling doll" - this is the "Tippy Tumbles" doll.
