If you were to ask me what my favourite characters were as a child, Babar, Noddy and Paddington Bear would be the three that would come to mind immediately. My Grandmother was a big part of my life as I was growing up and her British background influenced much of my childhood. I grew up with the old fashioned paper dolls that came in a glossy book with dozens of vintage outfits. After coming home from her yearly trips to London, she would bring us pixies, paper dolls and classic books. It was lovely!
As you can imagine, when I laid eyes on these two money boxes, I was quite excited. Babar AND Noddy! Ah!
Vilac is a French company that was originally founded in 1911 and they have been creating lacquered wooden toys for children for years. Their latest creation has turned everyone’s favorite elephant into a unique wooden money box that includes both a lock and key.
Vilac has done the same with Noddy and has even included his signature bell on the top of his head! I just love the deatil they put into this.
