How many Whimbles do you own? What is a Whimble you may ask? A Whimble is a thimble produced by Wade Ceramics. Costing around £6.50 each these upper crust thimbles, sorry Whimbles, are the royalty in the world of thimbles. First produced in 1995, the first one, strictly speaking is not a Whimble. It was produced for the 2nd Wade Fair held on 11th June 1995 and although produced by Wade, did not carry the distinctive Whimble logo. The next was of Holly Hedgehog for the 3rd Wade Fair. Other successful Whimbles include those produced for the Wade Collectors Club, the Seattle Tower, produced for the Wade Fair in that city in 1996, Arthur Hare for the Dunstable Wade Fair also in 1996, The Three Bears and Puss-in-Boots, one of Arundel Castle and the most popular of all, the Betty Boop Whimble which was produced by Wade in 1997, and the Betty Boop Rose Whimble now selling for around £12 on the secondary market. In all there have been fourteen different Whimbles produced by Wade Ceramics for C&S. 

 

The next Wade Whimble to be released in March 2011 is to commemorate the Royal Wedding between Catherine Middleton and Prince William on 29th April 2011.
