BABY BUGGY - MINIATURE TIN
I have a miniature tin baby buggy with wood wheels. The overall length including the handle is 5 1/4", height at the bonnet is 4 1/2". The bonnet is painted blue with cut outs on each side and attached to the pink painted bed by "ears" which fit through holes in the bed sides. The bed is riveted to the one piece curved bottom which acts as a base for the handle and the rolling wood wheels. This piece is not Ohio Art, the tin is a heavier gauge, the overall workmanship appears to be early Twentieth Century. No marks of any kind. I have searched for a similar piece for several months to no avail. Any ideas?

BOARD GAME - HEY TAXI! - 1970'S
I have been trying to locate a board game I had as a little girl in the 1970's. It was called "Hey Taxi" and it came with 4 plastic taxi cab playing pieces.

CLASSIC WORM TOY FOR BABIES
Hi, When my daughter was born in 1986 we bought her a really cute worm toy that I'd like to find again. I think it was made by Fisher Price, and I thought it was called "Wiggle Worm" but I can't be sure about either. It was about 8-10 inches long, each body segment(4 or 5) was a different color and the head squeaked when you squeezed it. It was made of soft fabric and was a very simple design. It was similar to, and probably the inspiration for the beanie baby "inch the worm" and a current toy by Gund called "Tinkle, Crinkle, Rattle & Squeak ".

, . Can you help me with the name of this toy and tell me if it still available anywhere?

DOLL - TALKING - 1980'S
My daughters grew up in the 1980's, and used to laugh about a commercial which featured a talking baby doll that said (among other things), "Gongee Peebee Bombee" which meant "I love my mommy so much!" My youngest daughter adopted the phrase and it became a code for the 2 of us. I have fond memories of a little 4-year-old girl wrapping her arms around my waist, grinning up at me, and saying "Gongee Peebee Bombee!" We still sign birthday cards, notes, etc. with the phrase. Does anyone know the name of the doll and where I can purchase one?

DOLL - TODDLER-SIZED
In the early 1990's, my friend had a large doll (about the size of a young toddler). When you picked her up. she was very nice to hold- well weighted. She had a plastic or vinyl type head and a soft body, but all of it was very realistic looking. Hers had blonde hair and a stylish, detailed outfit. I remember seeing other dolls of this line at specialty gift shops and even at some higher end card stores, usually sitting around child-sized furniture. They were quite expensive, although attainable to a kid who saved her allowance long enough. There were boys and girls of all colours and complexions, but I think there were more girl dolls than boy dolls and more caucasian dolls than multicultural dolls. Do you know if these are still on the market? Do you know who made/ makes them, or any other information on them? Thanks so much!

DOLL - TRANSFORMING DOLL AND ATTACHMENT
Ok, I have tried everywhere, and I am looking for this toy and I have no clue what it is called. It was a plastic little girl that had a jewel on her tummy.

Next: She came with a bigger plastic toy that would be something like a brush (that she would snap onto when she was clammed up) that became a little jeep that she could ride in. Please tell me that you can help me!

FISHER PRICE - 8 PIECE INSTRUMENT
During the late 1980's-early 1990's I remember having an eight piece instrument set (I believe it was 8) in which each piece came from a different instrument. For example, there was the slide thing from the trombone, a mouthpiece, a kazoo, etc. You could put it together however you wanted. It came in a blue case and I believe the front of it said Fisher Price. I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called (if I ever knew) and I cannot find any trace of it online. I hope you can help. Thank you so much!

I very much would like to know the name/manufacturer, and hopefully with that information I can find a picture that I need of this toy for a scrap book. Any help would be very much appreciated.

GAME - MEMORY BOARD GAME
I used to play a memory game in the 1970's. It was round and there were numerous tabs to close the windows.

I do not know if it came out in the 1970's or before this, but I have never seen it again. I would really like to know the name of this game.

MATTEL - VINTAGE TOY
My sister had an old Mattel toy from 1969. It was a pink figure with a round head, whose hands came out of the top of its head! The figure could stand on its legs, or flip upside down and do a hand stand. It rode around in a blue and orange car with hot pink wheels. The car had a creature's face on the front. It's mouth was open, tongue sticking out, and it had a horn for a nose! I recently came across one, and it's on the desk in front of me. Both pieces read, "MATTEL INC., 1969, HONG KONG". Can anyone tell me the name of the series? I seem to remember it's something like, "Topsy Turvies", but to date I haven't found anything on them. Thanks a bunch! - Patrick

PENGUIN IN HELICOPTER - 1980's
Hi, I'm looking for a plastic toy I had as a child, probably from the late 1980's. I have only vague memories of it but I think it was a light blue, very chubby helicopter and inside it was a cute little penguin. The rotor blades were possibly yellow and the penguin, which was removable, might have been of a more rubbery kind. Thank you.

PINKY THE ELEPHANT
Looking for a toy I owned in the late 1960's. It was a plastic pink elephant with wheels that you could sit on and scoot along with. It had the dressing of an Indian elephant, I think the wheels where red - not sure.

PLASTIC BALL
Around the early 1970's I received a see-through hard plastic ball about the size of a volleyball or smaller. Inside the ball were about 8 or 9 small plastic cups whuch were numbered on the bottom of each cup. Inside the large see-through ball, the cups were attached to the inside so that the top of each cup faced in towards the center of the large see-through ball. Along with these cups was a black ball about the size of a marble. Cup number 1 had an opening cut into the side of it so you could start the game by just rolling the marble-sized ball into the first cup. The object was to then fling or jump the marble-sized ball from one cup to another in numerical order. Any idea what the name of this toy was and who manufactured it? Where might I get one today?

I was born in 1972 and was given a yellow stuffed elephant with pink polka dotted ears and a pink polka dotted ribbon around his neck. You wound him up and he played "You are my sunshine."

PLUSH TOY - PINK LAMB
I am trying to find a replacement stuffed lamb for my 18 month old daughter. We received this pink lamb as a baby gift. The lamb is stuffed with beans I believe and has a ribbon around the neck.

We believe an aunt purchased this gift in Arizona in September 2003 and the store is no longer in business. Can you help?

PLUSH TOY - RABBIT
I am looking for what I think is a Hallmark stuffed rabbit. He was white with pink gingam lined ears, blue felt eyes, a pink nose and tongue, and a pink heart.

I am hoping to find another for a full body transplant for his butt.

PLUSH TOY - RACCOON - 1982 - MOVIE: THE TOY
I would really like to find a stuffed raccoon that I was given back in the 1980's. I saw the exact same raccoon in the credits/trailer of the movie "The Toy" w/ Richard Pryor. The current one is old and raggedy. He sits upright and it about 12-14"? tall and is a nice big huggable size for a child. I would like to track down another one. Could you find out who put that stuffed animal so I may start the search for a replacement. A part of me wants to say it was Russ, Dakin or Applause. Thank you so much for any info you can offer.

POCKET SNAILS - LETTER ADVENTURE
I just had to say thank you for listing the Pocket Snails - Letter Adventure DVD on your site. My daughter, who will be two years old in a couple of weeks, simply adores it! It arrived in the mail only yesterday, and she has watched it countless times already. By the end of the day, she even started singing along to the Alphabet Song; something she has never done before. I guess her father and I are just missing that special "something" that Gordon, Dale, and Buttons seem to possess in spades! It's a joy watching her have so much fun learning. Thank you for the recommendation, and I look forward to trying other products on your list.

PUPPET - MEANIE MONKEY - 1985

Any information on this monkey is appreciated. A mom

TRAIN - PEG BOARDS
In 1971 I was given a battery operated (I think) toy train set that had a board that was seperated into squares that had a smooth track carved into it. Placing the peices together would connect that track. The boards had peg holes all over it that something (houses) could be placed into. I remember that there were manually operated switching bars that would direct the train at certain junctions. That all I can remember.
