The long-running BBC children's television programme Blue Peter
has a series of iconic badges
they give to exceptional people who contact or appear on the show.
Now, you can have your own badge inspired by the classic Blue Peter
badge. This shape has been made to exactly match the measurements of a 1980s-era Blue Peter
badge I own (shown in the attached photos). The sailing-ship motif on the flat front of the real badge is not present on this model; you are free to add your own design inspired by the show's logo, or something else entirely.
No pin is provided on the back of this model; you can get one to glue on from a craft shop, or reuse a pinback from another small badge.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not intended as a fake or counterfeit Blue Peter
badge for fraudulently obtaining the benefits of a genuine badge! It won't work as one, anyway; children who earn a genuine Blue Peter
badge get a photo ID
they need to also show to gain the badgeholders' benefits, and the current-day badges have a slightly-different shape and sculpted details not present on this model. This model is only intended as a little old-school pop-culture-inspired accesory for modern-day nostalgics, costumers and cosplayers (classic Doctor Who
wore two of these on her jacket!), and anyone else who can have some harmless fun with the idea.
I've shared this model freely on Thingiverse
, and you can also download the file here under Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0 license.
If you'd like to buy a print, buying it from my shop would be very cool of you.
