Cadbury Limited, Bournville, Birmingham: Film Fair Wombles from the BBC TV Series, c mid 1970s, oranges yellows and greens with full figures of each Womble, his name, and "Womble Hint no. _ on Back" Also a note "Please dispose of this wrapper carefully 'Keep Britain Tidy' " Toploader small.
The idea for the original Wombles book came to Elizabeth Beresford while walking on Wimbleton Common with her children. The Wonbles featured teddybear like creatures concerned with keeping the common tidy, as humans leave behind an awful mess. In the mid 70's, the Wombles BBC puppet show took off and Wombles were everywhere! Here are #1-6 of the scarce Wombles Cadbury Milk Chocolate wrappers! Each has a different full colour, full sized portrait: Great Uncle Bulgaria, Tobermory, Orinoco, Bungo, Wellington, and Tomsk. Each comes with a handy Womble Hint for a recycling craft on the back, like Orinoco's milk bottle cap mobile. Wombles are not exactly pushing systematic change, but they did appear, lifesize, at COP26!
CONDITION: Very Good Plus; no names or marks, wrappers are still closed and clean, no wrinkles or creases, just not quite crisp with a few tiny edge rubs. Item #22674
