PHTHALATE - FREE BABY PHOTO BOOK
I am searching for a Baby Photo Book similar to the product manufactured by Sassy called "Who loves Baby", a product that is made of a soft material that you can insert photos into for baby to look at and learn to recognize family members.

PLASTER OF PARIS MONSTER MACHINE
I am trying to find the name of a great toy I had as a child, to give to my son. It is used for making hollow plaster of Paris busts and money-boxes of Dracula, Frankenstein, werewolf etc. It was available sometime in the late 70's to early 80's, I thought it's name was something like "Monster Machine" or "Monster Factory" and I think it was made by Mattel but I cannot find any reference anywhere on the web. Essentially, it involved filling a clear hard-plastic mould with plaster of Paris, then placing the mould in a plastic frame (I think the color of the frame was green and/or purple). After it is locked in place, you turn the handle of the machine for several minutes to spin the frame around and make the plaster spread throughout the mould. After it sets, the it can then be painted. I am looking for the name of this product, and if possible, where to purchase it. Please help. Thank you, Andrew

PLUSH TOY - DOG with "LOVE"
I have a stuffed animal dog that is about 2 feet tall and was bought at a Hallmark store in La Palma, CA in 1982. I can't read the tag anymore, but from what I can make out, the brand on it says in orange letter's "LOVE". So I am assuming the brand was "LOVE". He isn't a typical looking dog...he has arms and legs like a human would, but he is all stuffed and his face and ears are what make him a 'dog'. He is all brown with a white muzzle and a little white patch on his upper chest. I slept with him for many years as a child and so he is pretty worn. I thought it would be neat if I could locate another one of him (since I am sure more than just one was made). I have no clue where to start though. He is a very special dog. Can you help? Thanks, Heather

In the 1970's I had an orange "Snuggle" believe it was made by Playskool or perhaps Creative Playthings.... maybe even Fisher Price... I cannot remember ... anyway it was called "Snuggle", he was bright orange and made of, I believe, lamb's fleece.

I have about 1/2 inch of snuggle left in my keepsake box and would really like to be able to search for a complete one.

My daughter's absolute favorite toy ever was a white stuffed monkey. It had short white fur, tan face and paws, and the attached tag named it "Einstein". I don't know what company manufactured it. It had inner wires in the arms, legs, and tail that could be bent to a shape for posing. My daughter was born in 1995, so I believe it was a current item in that timeframe, plus or minus a few years.

Neither the toy instructions nor the box indicated how to order more. Do you know where I could find a Pretzel Jetzel for sale?

Is a toy called Wonder Horse still around? My nephew used to play on one. It was a ride-on toy. It was on a platform and had springs. It could be that the large exposed springs were dangerous, and that the toy is no longer on the market. Grayce.

In the late 1960's early 1970's during the big NASA moon landings, there were ALOT of toys I remember as a small boy(being born in 1963). The one toy I have been looking for information on was built in these years by Mattel I belive, and if Im not mistaken it was called The X14. It was a 3 wheeled riding toy constructed of metal, and was steered by a stick much like an old airplane woud be. It was basically the predessor to the Big Wheel of later years. I would love to find a picture of one to show my children and wife, being as how Ive talked about it so much. If you could possibly find anything on this toy, Id appreciate it all too much.

I have a today's kids "Midnight" horse purchased in the mid 1990's. the horse is in great shape, but the rubber bands are getting brittle. I can't find anywhere to get replacement bands.

RIDE-ON - SPACE TRAINER - 1960'S
I am trying to locate any information about a promotional toy that my husband won as a child in the early 1960's. He knows the toy as a "space trainer" which he won on the Foreman Scotty Show in Oklahoma City as part of their kid's birthday club. It looks similar to a single seat ferris wheel, the child would sit in it and hold on and spin around where their head would go around to the ground and back up again. I'm interested in any information, but most specifically, who was the maker, did it have a different name from space trainer, how many were made, and what it might be worth today.

The Batmobile you describe was made by Louis Marx & Co. It had a black plastic body, a red bat shaped steering wheel that "squeaked", a microphone just in front of the windshield, a functional trunk lid with 3 rubber "missile launchers", and chrome hubs on the wheels. I have an obstructed photo of the original box it came in (Christmas circa 1965-1966). It shows the upper right corner. I would like to see a picture of one just if anyone has one. This was my favorite riding toy for years.

ROBOT - AQUATIC -1960's
I purchased what appears to be a 1960s toy robot. It actually looks an aquatic robot ... a robotic frogman ... you get the drift. Anyway, there's no toy company insignia to be found, so I was curious to see if you can identify it. The robot has a jet pack (houses batteries), and makes a series of sounds, including a blast off/jet sound, a swimming sound, and various beeps that correspond to the blinking wand in his right hand. Anything you can tell me would be appreciated. Matthew

ROBOTS - TRANSFORMER-like
I want to find a toy I used to have when I was younger, but I can hardly remember what it looked like or the name of the toy.

If you have any idea what I'm talking about please e-mail back because I really don't know where else to look.

ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - 4
I am in search of a late 1970's toy called Rock'em Sock'em Robots. I'm turning up empty handed. My husband, who will be thirty-one this January, still seems somewhat "bitter" about not having received this toy as a child. I thought it would be fun to give it to him for his birthday.
ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - 5
My dad loves Rock Em Sock Em Robots. I've seen the new Toy Story 2 Rock Em Sock Em Robots, with Buzz vs. Zurg, and also the Batman vs. Joker set. These just aren't the same as the old set that I'm looking for. That kind consists of a wrestling ring with a blue robot and a red robot. Thanks, Amy.
ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - 6
I am looking for something similar to Rock'em Sock'em Robots. I thought I recently saw an ad. Thanks, Alan.
ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - RESPONSE
Rock'em Sock'em Robots was made my Marx Toys in 1962. Some years later the original company closed and the Marx molds were in legal dispute between two companies who had bought the rights to them. Ideal toys came out with a similar toy in the late 1980's with slight updates. The legal dispute was recently settled and a new Marx Toys is now in business with a showroom in the Toy Building in NYC. The owner however is only bringing back the older and simpler classics. Because Ideal came out with something similar, he wants to wait before a re-release of Rock'em Sock'em, maybe another five years. The only place you may find one is in an antique store, where you'll probably pay about $150.00 for it, or check some toy auctions on the web. Hope this helps, Carl.
ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - RESPONSE
Check out a place called Cybetoyz. They recently had a set of Rock'em Sock'ems, original ones, I believe. They also have another version that shows up as sold. But they do have a toys wanted section you can post a message there. Good luck with your search.
ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - RESPONSE

ROLLER COASTER CONSTRUCTION SET
About ten to twelve years ago I acquired a roller coaster construction set that consisted of a plastic base, aluminum poles about twelve inches in length, one eighth inch nylon tubing, a few steel balls and a corkscrew lift to carry the balls to the top of the track. It was completely customizable. I cannot remember the name of this roller coaster construction kit, and I would really like to find the company or the name of the company that manufactured this product. If you could forward this message, I would be very appreciative.

RUBBER FACE BEAR - DRINKS AND CRIES
My sister had a bear when whe was little, like between 1976-1982. This bear had a rubber/vinyl face and had both a hole in the mouth to feed water too with a dropper and also a small hole in each eye so when you squeeze him he crys. He has a brown terry cloth body. He was ruined in the sun back when my sister was little and I would like to find another one for her. It looks like a cross between a Rushton bear because of the rubber like face, but has sad eyes like the Galoob "Lost N Founds", but I don't think it is either of those. I can't find any other manufacturers that made a cloth bear with a rubber/vinyl face that cried tears. Please help if you can.
RUBBER SQUEEZE TOY FIGURES - 1960's
I am looking for (or at least to find the name of) a toy I had in the late 1960's - early 1970's. It was a white rubber squeeze toy figure of a man in a toga robe. The tips of his shoes peeked out of his robe and he had a knobby nose. Do you have any idea of what this toy would have been called?
