Does anybody know who the man with the pigeon on his head is supposed to be from the ELC Happy Land Village? We thought a postman but then saw there was an actual postman. Is he the Village Idiot, Local Flasher? Anyone....?

His name is Grandpa Bonnet, DH of Granny Bonnet.
I've no idea why he has a pigeon on his head. grin

I wondered about that too. DD calls him Bamps, after my dad (who wouldn't be known for having a pigeon about his person).

SquirtedPerfume, how do you know that? I didn't know the characters had names!

er, from the product description? Dont know really how I remember this DS is 11 now so we've not played with it for a while!
I just immediately recognised him from the OPs description.

Here's the description of the village from Mothercare.

The HappyLand Ready to Play Village set is truly amazing value, as bought individually, the buildings would cost over £120. HappyLand is the perfect setting for inspiring early imaginative play in your child. This lovely HappyLand Ready to Play Village Set includes: two-storey cottage, two-storey bakery and tea-room, telephone booth, greengrocer market stall, three trays of fruit and vegetables, a car, two delivery vans, a cat, a dog, Mr and Mrs Barley, Poppy and Charlie Barley, Granny and Grandpa Bonnet, Mr Bun the Baker, Delia and Petula the Grocer. There are also fun sounds to enjoy.

Maybe he's supposed to fill the "Northern" demographic? grin <ducks>

I love Happyland. Bought loads of it and DS barely played with it at all sad

Hmmm, we didn't get Granny Bonnet in our set. The set description sounds different, maybe we get different ones down here in Aus (I'm an ex-pat Brit)?
THanks for the info though, I think you're right about the 'northern' thing -ties in with a Teletubbies ep called 'Grandad's Pigeons' that DD LOVES watching!
