We'd like to offer a hearty big up to reader Robin for pointing out the 40th anniversary of Playmobil.

He wrote: "If you guys do write the story and I get a hat-tip at the end, then that would be the pinnacle of my otherwise tedious IT career."

There you go Robin. We hope that's cheered you up. Now get back to work. ®
