Hello! I regret to inform you, that while I was looking up the formal definition (well, wiki definition) of kiwiana, my very first - ever - blog post, deleted.  Grrr!    Thus I will leave you with this definition of 'kiwiana' to familiarize yourself with, if you are unfamiliar, as I shall probably use it in a future post :

Kiwiana are certain items and icons from New Zealand's heritage, especially from around the middle of the 20th century that are seen as representing iconic Kiwi elements. These "quirky things that contribute to a sense of nationhood"[1] include both genuine cultural icons andkitsch.
