Is it known whether Enid enrolled Gillian and Imogen in things like piano lessons and ballet classes, or were those things more common for later generations of little girls?
BarneyBarney says: I don't know, but I suppose most parents would encourage whatever their children showed an interest in. Imogen was keen on horses and she had a pony of her own and used to spend a lot of time at the stables.

This message is for Sue Webster. Can you contact me through the email that Barney printed below? I am willing to sell the magazines to you for 10 plus p&p if you are still interested and if you can pay through Paypal (free to send money). I would prefer them to go to a good home rather than making loads of money. Paul :)

Hi Sue, I was hoping to get a lot more for them as I am trying to raise funds to move house. I don't really want to sell them but it's a case of "needs must''. :( I've been and still am a great fan of Enid Blyton and this collection shows it to be honest. :) Barney, where is the For Sale area as I cannot find it? Paul

Hi Paul, I could be interested in the magazines but could only afford about a tenner for them. I doubt if you'd let them go for less but if a tenner's okay then it's a deal!
BarneyBarney says: Sorry - I've just realised people need Paul's email address:

Hello. I have a full set (16) of Enid Blyton's Adventure Magazine that I bought with my pocket money when I was 13 years old (I'm now 40). I made my own folder for them and looked after them very well. All are in an excellent condition. I would like to pass them on to someone else now but have no idea of their value. Does anyone have any idea or would like to make me an offer?
BarneyBarney says: You might have more luck if you post in the "For Sale" section of our forums, Paul. By the way, 17 magazines were published altogether but the first (Five on Kirrin Island) was unnumbered and may have been a pilot issue, only available in some areas.
