Welcome to the first edition of The Rumpuspuss Wringer – asking the hard hitting questions you never thought to ask. First up – the lovely Aime who built my website and is always on hand with top-notch humourous advice on all things marketing. Over to Aime…
I am Aime Cox-Tennant and I run Studio Cotton, a little marketing agency for small creative businesses.
Tell us a bit about what you do
During the day I work on brand identities, websites and marketing campaigns for indie brands including jewellers, florists, yogis, knitters, gardeners, and of course, personalised puzzle makers.
What was your favourite childhood toy?
I loved so many toys, right now all I can think about is my Littlest Pet Shop collection, but this was back in the nineties when the animals still looked like animals. I seem to remember having a vet set where I could wash blood off the animals – but that sounds too creepy to be true!
I was also waayyyyyyyy to into Beanie Babies, but I am pretty sure that continued though my teens.
What was your favourite puzzle as a child?
My nan used to by me a new Wasgij puzzle every Christmas, I still have them now and have been known to break one out from time to time.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
I was very lucky to go to Disneyworld in Florida around my 4th birthday. I remember we were about to leave the house, but my brother James wanted to watch the end of Ducktales first – I think I said something like “But James, we’re about to meet the real Scrooge McDuck on holiday!”.
What is your biggest unsolved puzzle in life?
I had these rocks as a kid that were gemstones encased in dirt, and you had to soak them in something – underneath was a plastic jewell that you could add to jewellery. Absolute tat and I freaking loved them. I was saving a couple of rocks for a special occasion, so I hid them in my room.
I never found them again, and wonder to this day where they could be – although I am pretty sure my mum just binned what would have been two clumps of mud!
I found the trailer for them here!
First album that you bought? Spice by the Spice Girls, obvs.
