No worries Rosie, your welcome. I think I have a bit of an obsession with collecting all the color variations!

Now there's a challenge  ;D  Just when you thought it was safe only to collect the colours, you now find you have another 20 to purchase  ;D

Hi Robert,

I have a couple of the next size up, although they seem to have become rather expensive these days. Aren't there 4 sizes altogether..? - I think your right there's probably at least another 40! - Probably have to consider remortgaging to acquire all the different variations! I can live in hope!  ;D

Hi
 Yes, 4 sizes, and I think at least one more colour...

I've seen a brown one :)

Robert -  I know in the small size there are 6 main colors, however there are 17 different shades in total! :o

I don't think that there are as many in the larger sizes. Just the main 6 colours I think.

Even more than I thought  :o

I collect the green, but often the shades are very different!
