OMG lol! I hadn't actually read the article, and it matches my theory about the handprints being transferred onto a heart plate, masquerading as Madeleine's last gift to her doting granny...specifically designed to tug at the heartstrings (pun intended) of the audience..who will then hopefully hit the donate button on the Mc's website again

Ahh the marketing ploys of the McCanns, it would be brilliant if it wasn't so tragic, and that a little girl disappeared without a trace..

Same shade of pink and everything.  I don't think it's the exact same plate because the one Ma Healy is holding up has a wee pattern round the rim.  A pre-printed pattern, not made by a child, it is far too even and exact.  And therefore even more unlikely to have been knocked up at a nursery or in a ceramics café IMHO.
It's those very exact and spaced out metacarpals that look most odd to me, especially the middle finger on both hands. There is such a gap between the palm and the first metacarpal that the fingers look detached. I've never seen palm prints ending up looking like that, so well spaced and exact.

Of course the back story still makes no sense, but assuming it's not the most truthful of versions (as if lol) and the nursery handprints were brought from Rothley to Granny after Madeleine's disappearance, Ma Healy has cut it out, stuck it on the heart plate, neatly inscribed with Madeleine's message to her...voila heart wrenching photo of bereft grandmother with her grandchild's last gift to her, presented in true team mccann style as this fairytale type scenario, that on the surface most people would not question..they all just go "Awwwww..poor things"  mission accomplished..

Does Ma Healy know, yes, I think she probably does.
Well done that man/woman there is just something that doesn't sit right with that plate! And for what's its worth I think Ma Healy is well in on it IMO.

I've just read the details and it looks likely!

I've been reminded of the heart-shaped photo of a pop singer which, at great expense many years ago as a child - okay, all it cost was the postage and several packet tops from cornflakes - I sent away for and could hardly wait for it to be delivered.

Cheap, nasty and tacky.

Sorry, I really can't think what has made me associate that with everything about the McCanns.........

So not much change from 30 quid by the time you put the postage on. And we are expected to believe that they just give them out at nursery? I don't think so!
And when Kate is buying her own tops from Asda and clothing from Gap for Maddie is an "extravagance", we are expected to believe that they are going to squander thirty quid on a plate for Granny? I don't think so!

I know...me too! It seems like it about 'her' and Madeleine is an after thought.

ETA You're absolutely right!  It's a dark photograph, but I blew it up to 250% and lightened it and Maddie's hair IS dark in the pendant picture!

There is a very active debate about this on the "Controversy" Facebook page. Good questions being asked, imo, and a few simply suggesting that questions are inappropriate about a grieving grandma.

I decided to have a look at this and observe and ask questions about it here.

The writing seems to have been done first because the handprints look as though they are fitted around it.

The phalanges of the fingers are curiously separate and distinct. That surely wouldn't happen if the child pressed her hand onto paint. Was paint applied with a brush, leaving spaces at the joints?

The fingers of the left hand are poker straight, while those of the right curve and they curve neatly parallel to each other. This curve helps the print to fit onto the plate around the writing. The palm is straight. I can't get my fingers to curve while my palm is flat on a surface. I've experimented. If I curve my fingers like that, they won't lie straight against a surface and my palm won't lie flat either. Perhaps it's different with a small child's hand. I'll ask my two grandsons tomorrow to try it out.

Both little fingers look compressed. I don't know how that happens and the print still shows fingers flat against a surface. The third joint of the little finger of the left hand is just neatly not there. Again will ask my two test subjects.
De javu... only Maddie is worth to hang on the locker...just like Oldfield 'checked on Madeleine' ..I smell a rat..sorry PR
