Poodlepods Pippa

No office would be complete without a little dolly diorama to keep everyone entertained.  In keeping with her jester’s role, The Vice-Chancellor’s Fool brings her little chums out of the toy box and into the madhouse on Instagram for a dolly horror HR picture show. Why not join in the fun..@poodlpods

Main Characters


PA Pippa

Our long-suffering vintage Palitoy admin dolly from the 1970’s is still stuck in her university admin career and works in the Future Excellence Engagement Section (FEES). She works for both Professor Sasha and the Vice-Chancellor at the University of Admin.  Pippa can be found sipping her gin, making inspirational slide decks, deactivating robots, playing with her VR head-set, gazing at Robert Redford posters and mopping the floor


Intern Billy Bratz Dolly

Our Millennial dolly endured a short sharp stint in Finance and has never fully recovered (see photo). Pippa took him under her wing and is very protective, especially when robots are around, but most awkwardly, his is now her line-manager.



Secretary Sindy

..is an old Pedigree PA in the dreaded Humanoid Resources and Pippa’s best friend. We don’t want to stir up trouble (!) but there was a ‘dalliance’ in the summer.  The question on everyone’s lips is, can she be trusted or has she now gone over to the dark side?


Diane and Maureen – HR Fembots

These gorgeous ladies are the enforcers who make sure all HR compulsory learning materials are completed on time and to everyone’s satisfaction – or there will be trouble.  Creepy in a Shining kind of way, they stalk the corridors of the University and will not leave Pippa alone.

IMG_0240The Vice-Chancellor 

Yup, he earn’s quite a bit and demands total transparency! He struts about the University in his shiny red boots and worships at the alter of the golden pension pot. He also rather likes those solid silver Prada paperclips – better pick them all up Pippa or no lunch for you…


The Robots

The University of Admin is increasingly populated by robots of all shapes and sizes, enforcing all sorts of rules and making everyone’s life rather uncomfortable – including insisting on robot-friendly toilets.


Professor Sasha

PA Pippa’s boss and a senior member of the University’s Equality Fanny Mark Team who does not know Pippa’s name or anything about her because Prof. Sasha spends all her time applying for special awards to celebrate progression in the workplace (her own)
