Can you match the Holyrood PR staffer to their much-loved cuddly toys?

toy stories from Scottish public relations agency

Let us introduce each of the much-loved cuddly toys belonging to members of the Holyrood PR team.

A – Teddy. A bit misshapen, but only because his owner sleeps on him nightly
B – Holly Hobbie. A 70s classic who never loses her charm
C – Baba. This lamb is small in stature, but loved mightily
D – Norris. Don’t be fooled by the lavendar bonnet. This is a feisty teddy
E – Bert. Complete with a hand-knitted jumper from grandma
F – Snap. A luminous creature with a photographic heritage
G – Lordy. Somewhat threadbare after travelling the world
H – Truffles. A high-maintenance Highland cow
I – Archie. A special care baby unit hero

Why did we look them out? Well, we’re proud of our PR successes, but even we have to doff our caps  when  true public relations titans come along.

Recently the loudest media buzz has been created by the cuddly toys featured in charming TV adverts  – whether Monty the penguin from John Lewis or the singing toys at the jumble sale from Freeview.

So, to celebrate the PR success of these two toy-themed stories, we thought we’d share a few toy tales of our own – digging deep to find the furry friends who have been with Holyrood PR PR staff down the years.
