It’s difficult to recall those distant days when the attention of a wayward or distracted child could be held with the assistance of a sardine tin and some feeble wordplay. Even the finest of homes had space for this great delicacy. A shared passion for sardines bridged the generation gap enabling father and son to bond together. The attractions of Meccano and William books paled into insignificance when compared with the radiant sardine. In another ten years the young man may be a member of the Drones’ Club and driving a Bugatti along the Croisette at Cannes but somewhere deep in his heart is the cherished recollection of those Skippers sardines. If the sister products shown below exercise similar powers of attraction he may be well advised to extend his seduction technique by investing in a supply of My Lady tinned fruits.
