Colin (the cardboard box).

Hello - my name is Colin (the cardboard box).

As you can see I've been really loved and played with for my whole life. Originally I contained toilet paper in a warehouse in Sidcup..............

Read the rest of this heart wrenching story in the toy cupboard ....... I suggest you have a box of tissues handy.

Ah, the famous Sidcup, whose water Coca Cola used to impersonate bottled mineral water.

Hi, Penfold, I'm in Lewisham.

you had a good time for a while as a 'toy' when you were destined to be an outer casing packaging.. be grateful you had a cuddle, please don't think me hard, many brown outers didn't get the joy you had!
