Peter Jenkinson talks about the toys inspired by this year's big summer events.
"For so many weeks I’ve been shouting at the radio whenever there has been a debate about the Olympic ticket debacle - if you didn’t get any tickets just get over it and watch it on the gogglebox while grinning smugly that you aren’t stuck in the almighty public transport hell that is certain to occur.
Saying that, I had forgotten that I’d applied for tickets until my confirmation of purchase arrived via email this last week - a pair for the synchronised swimming. I am much more excited than I should be. If only that beach volleyball application had been successful then I’d have been whooping just a little bit louder."
