Paper Monitor

11:07 UK time, Thursday, 1 November 2012

A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.

So it's 1 November, the season for poppy-wearing is well and truly upon us, and we've got some poppy developments to report.

A quick recap of the first appearances of remembrance flowers on the front pages as it stood a couple of days ago:

Daily Mirror - small poppy
Daily Star - medium poppy
The Sun - medium poppy, no stalk
Daily Express - big poppy

And now we have a flurry of new ones to add:

The Times - small poppy
Daily Mail - big poppy
Daily Telegraph - big poppy

We'll keep you posted if the Guardian and Independent follow suit.

Meanwhile, the papers seem keen to push another season upon us with news of what's topping the Christmas toy lists.

Somewhat surprisingly, hi-tech gadgets are out, and nostalgia is in.

Cabbage Patch Kids, Twister, Lego and Furbys are all expected to be bestsellers, the Daily Mail reports.

Paper Monitor wonders whether it might be time to rummage through the attic.
