Play School Humpty sells at auction for £6,000

A soft toy of Humpty Dumpty, used in the BBC series Play School, has been sold for more than £6,000 at an auction house in Oxfordshire.

The 53cm-high (20in) toy is one of three made for the show which ran for more than 20 years from the mid-1960s, and also featured characters such as rag doll Jemima, Big Ted and Little Ted.

Based on Humpty Dumpty from the nursery rhyme, it first appeared in April 1964 and was then in nearly every programme.
