The Jimps

These are the details of all the Jimps that I know to have existed. There are thought to have been a total of 67 Jimps made, so there's many more to uncover. Please do let me know if you know of any Jimps that I don't, or if you can provide any further details on those that I've listed. I've collected the photos from all over, and I must confess that I can't remember where many of them came from, so if any of them are yours then please let me know so I can add a photo credit.
