VAN - ANIMAL HOSPITAL - 1970's
This was a blue van featuring one brown dog, two orange cats, and possibly one bird. The tools were not very technical in nature, actually quite unrealistic considering the size of the animals (3 - 5 inches). A bandage, a needle and a stethoscope come to mind. This toy was popular in the early to mid 1970's. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Karen.

VINTAGE GARAGE TOY - 1950's
I am looking for a toy that I played with in the mid 1950's. I remember it was made of heavy printed chip board or wood and it was a garage that you fit the pieces together - sort of notched together. It was about 10 inches high. My grandparents had it at their home and I always played with it there. Would love to find one again. Thanks, Darlene

I would appreciate if you reply as soon as possible. Thank you for your time.

VOICE RECORDABLE DOLL
Was hoping you could help me find a doll that can record and play multiple short messages.  My boss is from Britain, and he's leaving us, and we thought it would be fun to find a doll where we could record him saying several funny British expressions. It would also be nice if this doll looked like a man.  Can you point me to any places that have a product like this? Thanks, Bill

WAGON
We bought a toy children's wagon from an estate sale. We bought the wagon hoping to restore it. It's an aluminum wagon, blue handle, and red/silver wheels with hard rubber tires. My question is who out there can help me replace the stencil of the word Greyhound and the figure of the dog in front of it. I have been unable to come up with any websites so far about antique wagons, let alone the one I'm looking for. I could probably make a stencil but there is very little of the original script left to be accurate. Brian.

WIRE WHEEL TOY - 1
I have been trying to figure out the name of an old toy that was popular in the late 1960's-early 1970's. It has been driving me crazy, and I was hoping you could help. Please, bear with me while I try to describe it. It is hand held and looks like it could have been made out of a wire clothes hanger. It also came with a red ball-like thing that was placed in between the wires. The wire was bent so that when the red ball thing was placed on the wires and you flicked your wrist, the ball would travel back and forth on the wires. It couldn't have been more than a foot long. Can you help with the name of this toy? Thanks!

WIRE WHEEL TOY - 1 - RESPONSE
This was called a Wheel-O when it first came out.

WIRE WHEEL TOY - 2
When we traveled my mom always brought along one of the hand held wire toys with the red spinning wheel. I don't remember what it was called, but the wheel moved along the wire track because of a magnet on each side. Hopefully, you know what it is called. I passed many hours of long rides to grandma's house playing with that toy. Can you help me find the name and how to find one of those toys?

WIRE WHEEL TOY - 2 - RESPONSE
I found one in Branson, Missouri on a vacation a few years ago. I'm sorry to say that the box does not have a manufacturer listed. It's called Super Action Fun-Go. The sticker price was $2.99 at a place called the 76 Mall. There's a product identification number on bottom of the box: YC 001. It's not as sturdy as the one I had when I was little, but it's still pretty fun so call and see if the 76 Mall is still there.

WONDER BOX
I'm trying to identify a toy my son received in 1997. It's really a favorite, and I'd love to purchase some more as gifts. I thought it was called the "Wonder Box."

Another side says "Playskool 1995 Hasbro, Inc." Searching the related web sites turned up nothing. Alyssa.
