Webb miniature

Well known by all, loved by many, the Webb Miniature. A toy made in the 50s, never designed to actually cut the grass, driven by a rubber band designed to slip if small fingers got in the way of the cylinder. This is my sons, who throws it around the lawn whilst I'm cutting the grass. The advertising phrase 'just like dads' is very apt for us. Early ones had wooden handles whilst later ones were fitted with rubber grips.
