Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.\n\nMetal maestro Dominic Chinea is blown away by a prewar ride-on toy aeroplane that has been grounded for decades. Owner Charlotte is hoping to restore her grandpa’s vintage toy for her own daughter Phoebe to enjoy. Rusty and in pieces, getting the plane fit for piloting again is going to be a mammoth job for Dom.\n\nLuthier Julyan Wallis is tasked with reviving a make-do-and-mend ukulele fashioned from an old cigar box. This hand-crafted instrument was made by owner Kate’s father in the 1920s and was played at family gatherings throughout her childhood. \n\nAnd ceramics expert Kirsten Ramsey works wonders on a collection of badly broken zoo animals made from wood pulp.
