'A milk tooth which had fallen out. He kept putting it back in and chasing the other Scouts.'

'A hand-carved wooden stake for killing vampires on a weekend camp.'
'A Happy Meal. He was eating it after carrying it around for three days.'
'A laptop on a night hike.'
'A portable GPS with the OS map of the area and our route pre-programmed. We were doing map-reading - I think he missed the point.'
'A 10-litre can of petrol "to make fire-lighting easier".'
'Teddy bears from some possessive Explorers.'
'A musical toothbrush providing the soundtrack to a late-night teddy bear's disco.'
