Hine E Hine became the most familiar Maori song in NZ when, from 1979 to 1994, it was used as Tv Channel 2's closing-down song. Viewers were gently encouraged to follow the example of a cartoon kiwi tv technician who switched off the tv transmitter and went to sleep with his pet cat in the tv transmitter tower.
Buzzy Bee is a small pull along child's toy. It was produced in massive numbers in the 1950-80's. Made from wood with small springs for the antennae. When pulled along by the string it would click and the wings would rotate. It was a favourite with generations of New Zealand children and many grandparents still buy one for their mokopuna today. Unfortunately the toy is now manufactured overseas and some parts are now plastic.
