A wooden pull-a-long handmade toy (circa 1940 to circa 1950) consisting of a green painted rectangular base with a rebate down the centre with three drilled round holes. In each of these holes there is a wooden cut out model of a rabbit. The 'Mummy' rabbit, in the first hole, has a brown painted head with black painted lines for ears, a lighter brown face with a black and white eye. A blue painted dress with a pale blue apron and red and white spotted blouse. The second rabbit has a brown painted head with black painted lines for ears, a lighter brown face, and black and white eyes. It wears a painted yellow cap with a red streak, a pair of red painted trousers with two buttons, a white shirt and a painted cream satchel. The third rabbit has a similar face with a silver painted hat, a blue dress with red markings and a cream painted satchel. Each rabbit has a round dowel in its base and the markings are the same on both sides. There are four red painted wheels held on by screws. The last rabbit has 'N.F.S' on the front of the hat. The Wootton Collection was all made by Walter H. Wootton (d.1979), a woodwork teacher.
