Good thing / Mad thing

Vac-Man, about pounds 28.99

Vac-Man is the arch-enemy of Stretch Armstrong, from the US cartoon strip. After pumping the air out, his red rubber body can be extended to strange and disgusting lengths, turning him with one deeply therapeutic wrench from a Henry Moore to a Giacometti. Then simply press the vacuum release button on the side of his head and he shrinks back to "normal". The instructions warn against "excessive abuse" but the Independent did manage to puncture its Vac-Man almost immediately. However any damage can be repaired and it should be noted that stiletto heels were involved... From Argos, Toys R Us, Hamleys or any good toy shop

SPECIAL OFFER: A free Vac-Man to the first 10 Independent readers to send a postcard bearing the name of Stretch Armstrong's canine companion to Vac-Man competition, Weekend Dept, The Independent, Canary Wharf, 1 Canada Square, London E14 5DL.
