Zebedee I have a Zebedee hand pup­pet in a yel­low dec­o­rated box. It’s in great con­di­tion, as is the pack­ag­ing. It’s pretty zany and great fun. I don’t think I will sell, but would love to know more and won­der what he is worth. Su­san Roberts, New­cas­tle, Tyne and Wear Bo­ing! Zebedee was a telly favourite from kids’ TV show The Magic Round­about back in the 1960s and yours looks to be in great con­di­tion. These toys have be­come quite hard to find and I’d say it is worth Round­about – sorry, I couldn’t help that – £100 to £150. They were made by Pel­ham Pup­pets, which was founded in 1947 by an ex-ser­vice­man. There were over 500 dif­fer­ent toys and the rarer blue-la­belled Pel­hams (called Wonky Toys) were the first made and are most sought-af­ter.
