Ern Shaw's Dingbats Characters

Tiny, Mac,Toodles, Mick and Twanky and many more, were names for the funny colourful pixie like characters that Ern Shaw created called the ‘Dingbats’. These characters appeared in annuals, colouring books and games.

His first ‘Dingbats’ annual published in 1950 sold at least 100,000 copies, and inside included stories, puzzles, jokes, games and lots of fun activities compiled and illustrated by Ern Shaw.
