Most children if not all children in Watford and its surrounding area knew where Trewins toy department was. Ebenezer House was the partners name for it but the children just knew it as where you went to have fun!
Pocket money toys was the most popular section of the department being the most easily affordable with whoopee cushions a real favourite. Next was the toy of the moment. Sindy and Barbie for the girls, Action Man and Lego for the boys. With, of course, the ever popular essential soft toy. Teddies out numbering the rest. Not much different from today.
