Marigold Bumbellina Froome

bumbellina-froomeMarigold Bumbellina Froome is a mature student at the Saint Littleted Technical College in Toytown.

She is making up for lost time, trying to build a new life full of art and colour and culture after escaping from an unhappy 20-year marriage to a demobbed Action Man with a melted hand.

She sees reviewer-reviewing as her way in with the much younger, cooler toys, and is never happier than when she is in the thick of it, with her Fringe Pig pass round her neck, enjoying unfettered access to all the reviewers at the Fringe.

Sadly the younger toys laugh at her for using strange, outmoded words like ‘CD player’, ‘Moulinex’, ‘mix tape’, ‘individualism’ and ‘privacy’.
