Well a trawl of the topic list ruined my first 27 ideas !
When faced with a difficult decision I always ask myself, 'What would Wall-E do?'.
I looked up to the shelf above my computer and there he was staring me in the face.
So this week the topic is Toys / Characters. I didnt want to restrict it too much, just in case you don't have any international film stars like Wall-E living with you.

Wall-E kindly climbed down to my keyboard for a quick photo for the theme

The Rules:
1. The challenge is just for fun
2. IMAGES MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. Only one upload per member, uploaded in this thread.
4. If you win, you host the next week’s challenge - see note below.

NOTE
Hosting involves starting a new challenge thread (with or without an example image - your choice) - and coming back at the end of the week to choose a winner.

This is Piglet, a small key ring, against a backdrop of Winnie the Pooh wrapping paper.

Mark, to persuade you NOT to pick my entry, be aware that I wouldn't be able to post a new challenge until Wednesday even if I did win. It's the taking part that matters Smile

Attack of the Killer Karate Penguins - well one penguin...
The only toys we have in the house that is small enough for macro photographing. Not having children and grandchildren, it's a tad difficult to find anything...

Well here goes.

Firstly thank you for your entries.

CB - having grown up watching Bagpuss, I recognised a mouse from the mouse organ. A nice close up of her face with the black background. I must admit when I first saw the image, I thought it could of been a grey clanger !

Andrew - I have noted your request. I like the photo ! It works really well with the wrapping paper background.

Eddie - hmmm bacon. Sorry, that comes to mind every time I see Peppa Pig. Looks like she is in a setting made for her.

Malc - why do you have a killer karate penguin? The shot works well with the car. Well lit.

The winner? This week it's CB ! A little bit of nostalgia sealed the win.
Well done, over to you.

Well, maybe I couldn't have made a rasher choice of character Mark if Peppa Pig makes you think of Bacon. Hey did you know I take all my clothes off do fry bacon.........that's so I can do it streaky.

Yes, the setting is Peppa Pig's family home, a toy that my 2 year old received at Christmas from family.

Many thanks Mark for this weeks challenge that had a lot of character and well done to CB! Smile
