Description: Here is my vintage Mr Funny plastic book stand. He is displaying a seclection of coloured covered Mr Men books. Thurman added crosswords to the rear of the books and brightly coloured covers. To the right on the wall is leaflet from the Bookseller 1983 advertising the Mr Men books' new look.
I beleive the Mr Funny book stand is very rare - I've never seen another, perhaps if you have one too you could post a photo of yours so we'll know how many there are? He certainly generated a lot of interest when I carried him home on the train!
