I work with visually impaired children. If you can help me, it would be appreciated both by myself, and the parents I work with.

SKY KIDS TOY BOX
I found a toy made by SKY KIDS. The cardboard packaging shows them in Cresskill, NJ, but I cannot locate them there. Basically, the toy is a crate/box that contains a mystery something that is trying to get out. You push a button on the crate/box, and a muffled voice says: Scuse me! SCUSE ME! SCUSE ME! Will you let me outta here? The crate/box shakes in your hand (or on the desk, with a rubber suction cup on the bottom) simulating something trying to get out of the box.

My name is Ross, and I am the Youth Minister at First Baptist Church of Center Point in Birmingham, Alabama. We have a student center that is equipped with all kind of interesting items. One used to be a toy called the Sky Racer. It was a car that ran on a plastic wire suspended from the ceiling. There was a claw on the bottom of the car which could be used to attach various things, and to deliver them to the front of the stage, much like a trolley. The Sky Racer took a corner a little to fast one night and jumped the track and fell to her death. Since then I have been looking for another one or something like it. Any information that might help me would be great. Thanks for your help, Ross.

SMALL FRY ORIGINALS
Early in the 1990’s one of my daughters received a Do-it-yourself kit entitled Small Fry Originals. This was a kit to make plates out of your child’s drawing. Our daughter did several drawings but we stuck them in a drawer and they were forgotten. Is this company still in business? We would love to have those drawings done now. She is a student at Washington State University in Pullman Washington getting her doctorate. Would love to be able to give them to her. Thanks, Peggy

My name is Candice. I teach at a Presbyterian School in Houston, TX. My colleague has a collection of manipulative-type interlocking puzzle-like pieces called Snap-art. They look like a typical two-head/two-hole puzzle piece with a circle in the center so the pieces can interlock horizontally and vertically. They come in rainbow colors and some with sparkles. The pieces are the size of the tip of my pinkie. I have searched the web and the stores with no success. Other information I have on Snap-art is as follows: They were originally made by Crafthouse Corp. in Toledo, OH 43607; the corporation was a division of RPM company. They were copyrighted in 1992. Another address I saw was CE, European Distributor, Dexim GMBH, 4980 Buende, Germany. This was written on the example creations cards that came with the sets. Do you have any information?
SNAP ART - RESPONSE
I did a little more checking and found this site. Haven't ordered yet but it looks like the box that got tossed

I have a five year old boy who wants a space suit for Christmas. The kind with tanks for breathing, gloves and boots. I can't afford the ones from NASA.
Why do they don't make any spacewarp games any more the old style?
In the late 1980's I received a toy spaceship for Christmas but can't seem to remember the name of the company or the toy itself. My friend had a similar toy - Manta forve spaceship. Mine was very different from Manta Force because the only figure that the ship came with was a small pilot roughly 1.5 to 2 inches tall with moveable arm, legs, head and the legs were bendable (knee hinge joint). A memorable fact about the figure was that it had magnetic feet which could be attached to 2 parts of the spaceships external surface. The ship itself was a dull white colour with 3 sections. The first section was the cockpit - blue windscreen with hinge for opening. The cockpit was quite small and only one figure could fit in. The middle section was the largest, it had more space. The back section could be extended out (I reckon there was an electric motor in it to push it out). This section could be completly removed and an orange passenger seat part (which 4-6 men could sit on) was also removable. The back piece also had a spave for 4-6 missiles which I think could be fired out. Also the middle section had a turret gun on top that was quite flat and could only spin round- did'nt do anything else. If you have any idea what I'm talking about please get back to me as it was a very memorable toy of my childhood and I have'nt seen one so unique elsewhere. I could draw a picture of the ship as I remember it if you want.

I purchased a hedstrom spring rocking horse 3-4 years ago and throughout the years I was forced to e-mail hedstrom for replacement springs, since for some reason my son kept busting the front right spring. Anyway they would always send me replacement springs no questions asked. They have however seem to have gone out of business and I am now left with a horse with only 3 springs. I have searched everywhere for replacement springs with no luck. If i could ever find a replacement spring my son would be thrilled. He has asthma and used to take his ebuterol(sp?) through a mask on his horse and now it is difficult to get him to take it sitting still. your response is greatly apreciated.

I have collected Stompers ( I joined the adventure ) in the 1980's, and now I cannot find them anywhere. I believe Schaver was making them, and then TYCO bought them out and stopped making them. Are their any groups that still deal with them, like tractor pulls and such? They were mostly powered by AA batteries. They even had a McDonald's Stomper give away as well. Please help. Thanks.
Have you heard of a toy company called Stompers or Stommpers? I am looking for a 'drag'. This is used in tractor pull competitions. My friend's children have one, and they have a lot of fun with it. It is small enough to be used on a large tabletop. Thank you, Sylvia.

Strawberry Shortcake dolls came out in the late 1970's or very early 1980's. I remember having a few of the toys that were manufactured by Kenner. At the time she was under copyright with a company called Those Characters from Cleveland. She appeared on greeting cards for American Greetings and Carlton cards, both of whom I've been in touch with. Carlton wrote me back saying that the company just recently dissolved. However, I know they made a small comeback in 1991; the toys were distributed by THQ Toy Distributors, and she was still under copyright with Those Characters from Cleveland. I'm a mother with two children. I want them to have an opportunity to play with these dolls. They are now collectibles and it is very difficult to pay the outrageous prices people are selling them for and also time consuming. I want to write to whoever has the ownership of the copyrights to Strawberry Shortcake, and ask what became of this doll and if they will ever make another comeback with her. I have had very few leads. I know this may sound trivial to some, but I really want to put my mind to rest and find out exactly what happened.

TEDDY RUXPIN - YES! VERSION - 2
I bought one of the toys you selected in 1998 the Teddy Ruxpin doll made by YES!. I have been trying to find some of the accompanying books and cassettes for the doll, but no toy store seems to have them. I have tried to call the 800 number listed on your web site (and on the doll's box), but there is a message saying that I have dialed incorrectly. The operator is not able to locate another number. Could you please let me know if there is another way to reach the manufacturer, or if, as I fear, it's gone out of business?

TIN FRICTION CAR - 1953
I have a 9 inch tin friction car of a 1953 Pontiac/Oldsmobile - similar to that on this link - http://www.antiquetoys.com/adzoid/shopFinalAd.php3?dmFsdWU9SmFwYW5+dGluJnZhbHVlPTQzMA== as yet no one has been able to identify the manufacturer - I can though on the bottom of the car make out a company logo inside an oblong oval ending with the word "Toy" - the oval\circle is formed by connecting the top of the first letter then running underneath the middle letters then connecting to the top of the letter T . Definitely the last word is Toy but the beginning Letters I think might be Amr by looking at the points but its this part I cannot exactly figure out\positively identify - So, do you know of a company logo on tin cars stamped on their underside that ends with "Toy" in this oval logo design style - another totally unidentifiable mark is also underneath the logo as well . Thanking you in advance, John

TIN TOYS - WIND UP - 1970's
In the mid-1960's to early 1970's, we had wind-up tin toys. Each was approximately 5"-6" high & 2 1/2" - 3" wide, with a wind up mechanism in the shape of a hat on top of the toy. Each toy had two wheels on the bottom for locomotion (they stood upright and were characters). One of the characters looked like a cornstalk, with a smiling face. The other looked like a banana with a smiling face. I'm trying to find out the product name, manufacturer and a possible replacement cost. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! Greg S.

TOY - IMPORTS
I heard that in order to import stuffed toys into the USA one must obtain a PA#. I believe PA stands for Pennsylvania, the rest, I don't know.
TOY - IMPORTS - RESPONSE - DR. TOY
Yes, PA is Pennsylvania. While I don't know all the details, I know that all the plush (and other things that are stuffed, like pillows, etc.) manufacturers have a registration from Pennsylvania. It is probably a requirement in that state to have it, and since they sell to all states, they need to have it. It is also possible that by having it from PA, a manufacturer then meets requirements in all states.

TOY COMPANY CONTACT INFORMATION
I'm an Italian communication engineer fond of strategy and board games. I am particularly attracted by mental challenges and social interactions. Recently I applied myself to creating a new original board game. It received unexpected success in my play test group. It has an interesting plot, and the right mix of chance and strategy. After the final revision I began I began approaching to games manufacturers online. However this has been discouraging, as they usually refuse contact with inventors. Can you suggest references, contacts, or publishers? Gero.
When I was a kid I got a very large toy frogman for Christmas one year, I think around 1960-1964. It was about 2 or 3 feet high and hard plastic, mostly blue and red IIRC.

My brother and I received little toy motorcycles (about 5 or 6 inches long, and powered by AA batteries) one Christmas called "Screamin' Demon." I'm not sure about the spelling, but that's definitely the name of the toy. I haven't seen one since, and BOY have I looked. Does anyone remember these mean little monsters? They REALLY flew along the sidewalk, and we drove our mother crazy with them. It'd be great to find one to give him next Christmas. I'd also love to see a reply from anyone who just remembers them, regardless of whether you know where to get one.Thanks in advance!-- Sheldon

TOY WEAPON - BRADLEY'S MACHINE GUN
I emailed you about a toy gun from Milton Bradley called Bradley's Machine Gun Big Dick. It's a rear crank machine gun using a belt fed loader which you put the bullets in. I emailed you about this product looking for any information; since you're DR TOY, I figured you might have some insight as to its history. You said that you never heard of Milton Bradley making a machine gun, since they make board games. I went to the Antique Roadshow in Toronto in August and the toy guy there, said he has never heard of it either, but was quite interested in it. He offered me some cash on the spot, but I said no. I figured if he was going to offer me as much as he did, then it must be worth something. He mentioned that if it were to go into a toy auction, there would probably be a biding war for it. But I am not interested in selling it; I just wanted some history about it. Thanks, John.

Your local hobby or train shop should have Greenberg's Guide to Lionel Trains. This book will tell you the value of your trains. Before you try to sell them, realize that a dealer will give you about 25-35% of that value, since they sell them at guide prices. The best bet is to sell them privately to get the best price. Brad.

TRU-ACTION BASEBALL GAME
I have a Tru-Action tin litho baseball game made by Tudor. According to the patent date it is from 1939. It has the original box but is missing the players. Crosby.
TRU-ACTION BASEBALL GAME - RESPONSE
Greetings from Baseball Games. We found this question at the Dr. Toy website. We've no idea how long ago this question was asked, but for whatever it's worth, here's an answer: the patent date that appears on most Tru-Action Electric sports games made by Tudor Metal Products is indeed from 1939, but Tudor's Electric Football first hit the market in 1949 and Electric Baseball in the early 1950s. The patent number is actually for the "vibrating propelling device" the games use, patented by Eugene Levay in 1939. It does not indicate the age of the game itself.

TRYING TO FIND CLASSIC TOY...
When I was growing up (1970's) there was a toy that was made up of what appeared to be two buckets or bowls upside down with strings attached to both of the bowls. A child would stick each foot on a bucket and hold the strings and walk like he was on stilts. I do know that you could make this product if you tried, but does any store or company sale this item. Thanks, Beth

Where can I find an Underdog hat? I got one in 1998 at a Suncoast Video Store. It was a gift with sentimental value, but it is nearly worn out. Can you help me find another?
I am writing to you about a toy, and I am not really sure what it is. I saw a commercial for it on Nicktoons or the kids Disney channel. It is very similar to the Video Now players for kids, but I don't think that is it. The commercial showed how you can download pictures, videos, and music. I think. I searched all over the internet. I would like to get it for my step-daughter who will be 10. Hope you can help. Megan.
I am trying to track down a toy I saw in a magazine when I was in junior high school in the 1980's. I don't know the name of it although it is very similar to the Skyrail Marble Roller Coaster that is on the market today, except smaller and marketed more towards older kids. The track tubing was light blue or white I think, and the Lego like construction pieces that made up the towers that held the tracks up were black. For some reason I am going crazy trying to find out what the name of that toy was. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Pete

Please help. Carrie
UNKNOWN TOY - TWO STICKS CONNECTED WITH STRING ACROBAT
I do not even know what to call this toy, but I will describe it to you. It must have been around in the 1950's and 1960's. maybe later. It was two sticks that were connected at the top with string, and attached to the string was an acrobat or clown and when you squeezed the two sticks together with your hand, the clown would do somersaults. It was a very simple and inexpensive toy, and I can't seem to find it anywhere online, maybe because I don't know exactly what to call it! Can you help, please? Thanks - Lynn
