As the ad continues, Elsie opens her Christmas presents and much to her delight, one of her gifts is a toy astronaut helmet which she immediately puts on.

Following her journey as her interest in the universe and space travel grows, we next see Elsie being waved off by her parents as she heads to university with a packed boot full of space books and of course her helmet, which takes top spot on the shelf of her rear window.
