JACK IN THE BOX - 1961- REPAIR
I have a 1961 jack-in-the-box in virtually mint condition, but the puppet was apparently pulled out of the box. The metal case so of course sealed with rolled metal. I assume that any repair will void any value of the box, but is there a method for properly fixing this? Thus far, all I can see is cutting a part of the bottom out, making the repair, and sealing the bottom back up. Any suggestions? Thanks! Charlie

JETZ CAR - 1950's
When I was quite a bit younger, in the late 1950's, I had a little yellow plastic car that I believe was called a JETX car. It was powered by a metal tube approximately the size of a lipstick tube that slid under the car at the rear. This tube was loaded with a solid orange block after which a fuse was coiled and pushed through a screen after which a nozzle was placed over the end of the tube. The fuse was lit with a match and shortly after the car was propelled along the ground like a rocket. I have been unable to find any information on this long lost toy, so any information you could provide would be appreciated. Thank you.
My mom is looking for a toy that she had as a kid growing up, it was called Jingle Jump. The description she gave me was that it was a rope with a loop on one end (to go around the foot) and the other end had something like a box that had bells in it. The object was basically the same as modern day Skip-it, where you make it go around your foot and you jump over the rope part. She said she found very little information on it, she said it was made some where around 1965, and thinks it might be made by Hasbro. I'm basically trying to find out any more information on it, and see if there might be anybody out there who might have any for sale. Could you point me in the right direction? Thank you. Melissa

JUNIOR TOY DIVISION - AMF PEDAL TRACTOR - 1960's
I am looking for split rivets for the above tractor that was purchased in the 1970's. It had a single front wheel and the split rivet allowed the front wheel to turn. It was always a bad design and we had a supply to these split rivets that we had to replace quite often. Now my grandchildren use the same tractor and I am down to my last one. Regular rivets do not work. Can you help? Stan.

I played with Keepers in the late 1980's. The one I had was a medium-sized pink plastic snail with a shell that would twist open, allowing you to hide stuff inside. I believe there were also blue and a mint green ones. Where can I find them?
When I was 3 or 4 yrs, I had a Pink Snail, who also had a little glow friend, I have been searching eBay and numerous other sites for them to no avail. Does anybody out there know who made these toys, or anyone anywhere that may have one they would be willing to part with. I would still have mine if it wasn’t stolen when I was much younger, and am frantically searching for one for my daughter. Please help me! Shiree in Australia

Where can I find a set of original Kerbangers? Some people also called them Click-Clacks. They were two glass balls on a string with a loop and you clicked them together. They were from the late 1960's or early 1970's.
I'm looking for Kerbangers. They don't have to be the original ones, but something with the string, not the fake things they sell now. We're doing a 1980's party and would be so very grateful if you can point me in the right direction. Thank you. Andria.

KEYBOARD - PLAYTIME - RADIO SHACK/TANDY
I have a Playtime Keyboard. It was made for Radio Shack/Tandy. It was purchased in the mid '90's. Here is the question: There is a song on the demo that we love. We think it's name is "hot coffee" or "hot java" but can't find anything about this song. Where can I go to look for this kind of information? Have already checked countless search engines/song web sites. I thought if I could find something on the Radio Shack site...forget that. I know it's an obscure question but someone else out there has this keyboard and knows what song I'm talking about. Second song on the Demo. After "jingle bells", before "Santa Claus is coming to town".Thanks for any help you can offer.

I am a friend of Mark Marti's, the creator of this product. I believe he closed up shop on this product and is checking out other ventures; I don't believe he has any inventory left. I have made my own letters and stuff, plasticized them with clear Contact paper and attached my own Velcro on. That seems to work pretty well. Pam.

LARGE WALKING BUGS
Does anyone remember from either the late 1960's or early 1970's a line of large (maybe 8" or 9" long) walking bugs? I think they were battery operated, but they may have been wind-ups. I remember I had a spider-like creature who had fangs that opened and closed as he walked. They may have come with small human figures for them to "attack". I have wracked my brain and can't remember what they were called. I've searched the web pretty thoroughly, but without a name for them or the company that made them, I'm coming up blank. Please tell me I'm not imagining this and they did exist.

Back around 1969 to 1971, I was at another kids house and I remember they had this toy airplane that was about 4 ft long and was a VERY good plastic replica of a Boeing 727 or Boeing 707. It was really nice and I've never forgotten it. It rolled, had internal lights, external red/green lights etc. I have searched for years trying to find a picture of it. Anyone else ever seen this toy?

LION - TREADMASTERS - 1995.
The first is regarding cleaning moldy toys using artificial skin for realism. I have a lion from Trendmasters from about 1995 and it got moldy when touched lightly. What should I clean it with that will not damage the toy or the skin? (the skin can be removed). The second is why are few toy companies using artificial skin in their toys. The skin adds to the realism and makes the toy both feel alive and covers all the joints and gaps. (especially mechanical ones).The third is why is it that soft artificial skin in mechanical animal toys are so hard to find? I think these toys are very fun to have and play with. Wowwee and Trendmasters have some toys out but not many. This leads to my final (and hardest) question. Where can I find a list of all the mechanical toys using artificial skin? Thank you for your help. Javier.
