Even children are allowed to touch the artwork.. The child in the top
picture who is being lifted up to look at the sardine automata later
opened the lower smell cabinet and without being able to read - picked
out a jar and gave it a sniff and then put it back in just the right
place and delicately closed the door - it was a delight to see, as
many adults didn't manage to figure out the jars were for smelling.
Children know. The boys in shot are trying to win themselves a
chocolate sardine and have just discovered the secret inside the
shell; their response "woooaah, check this one out! Look at this!" and
the girls in the bottom have also just figured out the shell, the one
on the left went "ohmygod, look at this, OH MY GOD."

I spilt glue on my sardine tin when I was fixing in a part of the
mechanism. So last week I had to go back and reprint. It was a pain
because the box is so battered so the ink just tends to flood out the
lettering. In the end we had to do a layer, dry a layer, varnish the
layer and then do the next so that if the lettering flooded we could
wipe it down to the last layer rather than have to start again each
time. Ray worked with me for 4.5 hours to get this back to how it was
before and there was only minimal swearing.
