Entertain Your Friends at Christmas
Do you need a bit of help going uphill? Ideas for presents this Christmas? Take a few tips from the master contraptioneer Heath Robinson, who has a solution to every problem.
If you are worried about getting everything done at Christmas, use a few Heath Robinson tricks. Pull your trousers up with magnetic braces, peel the potatoes by gramophone, get a machine to pour the coffee, clear the table with a hydraulic jack and light your cigar with a foot pump. Using a Heath Robinson excuse, you can even test the kiss-permitting properties of mistletoe.
If you’re stuck for a present, introduce your friends to the wacky, ingenious world of the Mighty Commander of the Preposterous with a copy of Very Heath Robinson. It contains hundreds of ideas for improving everyday life, introduced by Adam Hart-Davis and Philip Pullman.
