Bagpuss shop pops up in Bayswater (UK)

Pop-up used for nostalgia. I like this because - well, Bagpuss is cool! :) 

From The Londonist: 

Only 13 episodes of Bagpuss were ever made way back in 1974, yet the enduring love for the cat who was "baggy, and a bit loose at the seams" continues apace, writes Zoe Craig. 

This October, nostalgia fans can get their Bagpuss hit at a new pop-up Bagpuss & Co shop at Whiteley's Shopping Centre in Bayswater. (There's nothing like this at the new Westfield in Stratford, you know») 

For a limited time only, you'll be able to visit the old saggy cloth cat and his friends before they return to their owners. Inside Bagpuss & Co, you can see the original Bagpuss used in the show (did you know he was meant to be ginger, but the dyeing company made a mistake?), alongside his friends Gabriel, Madeline, Professor Yaffle and the singing mice.
