Amy’s Unusual Pushalong Toy…

The strange creature in this picture is actually a real badger! He used to live with other badgers in a hidden badger’s home called a ‘sett’ on Amy’s farm.

After the badger died, Amy’s uncle had him stuffed  – like the animals you sometimes see in museums – and mounted him on a skateboard!

Amy brought the badger in to show her classmates and everyone wanted a ride on this unusual toy. It gave Mrs Bird an opportunity to talk about how badgers live in the wild, and the children drew some wonderful pictures of badgers, too.
