action figures / ?
I am trying to figure out what the name of the figures were called and who made them. The toys were sold in the mid to late 1980's and maybe onto the early 1990's. They were only a couple of inches tall, and they had a sticker on their chest. When you pressed on the sticker with your finger it revealed a nature symbol (water, wood, fire, etc...). Also, they were animal-esque and had weapons.

Barbie Trace and Color Fashion Stencils
I'm trying to track down the name of a toy that I loved as a child. This was in the 80s. I had a kit designed to help you trace, color, and design outfits for Barbie. There were four blank body poses in purple plastic that you traced and then sheets with outfits and heads that you traced over the body outline to create your Barbie picture to color. I can't seem to find the exact kit I had as a child and it still bugs me. The blank bodies stencils are what I remember distinctly and nothing that I've run across online has them. Any ideas?

Bouncing Baby Bunny Doll
Back in 1970 or 1971 I got a doll for Xmas that I'm sure was called Baby Bunny (but could be wrong). She came in a bunny outfit, but also came with a bouncing bunny that she sat on and bounced (like the bouncing horses we all had as kids). Can you help me figure out what this doll was really called and if I can find one anywhere? Thanks for any help you can give.

Bugs on the Run
My daughter loved the toy "Bugs on the Run" where three tiny bugs with wheels climb a set of steps and then slid down the slide only to face their fate of climbing the stairs again and again and again. She loved it so much that the slide broke a few times and after several attemps to fix it we had to throw it out. She was devastated and I've been looking for on for quite some time. Wondering if you could help. Thanks
Building toy - Plastic geometric shapes used on peg board
This toy was from the 1970Æs. It consisted of plastic squares, rectangles, and triangles that you could use to create one-dimensional objects such as sailboats or houses. They were not blocks, but instead were flat. The pieces had pegs which were placed into plastic boards with holes. I think that the boards were blue. The toy was similar to colorforms, but made of hard plastic. Thanks!
Building/Vehicle Toy
My little brother had a building toy in the late 1980's early 1990's and I can't remember the name of it. It had gray plastic pieces that were hollow and open on one side and they snapped together with blue and orange plastic joint pieces. It also had blue wing pieces, cockpit pieces, wheels that could all snap together to make vehicles. I just wanted to know the name of the toy.
I'm looking for a bunny made by Fiesta Toys. It is white with a blue ribbon and appears to be sleeping. It is floppy with a rattle inside. We received one of these bunnies in 2003 when my daughter was born. Of course, we're looking for a replacement. This is a plush toy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Bunny with plaid overalls
When I was born, in 1987 in Minnesota, my dad gave me a white plush rabbit. He was a pretty good sized stuffed animal. He wasn't permanently posed, nor did he have any sort of weight or beans in him at all. He had long floppy ears and he wore blue and white checked overalls. He was accidentily given away by my grandparents and I still to this day cannot locate a new one. His overalls were shorts and they straps had buttons where they met the front of the outfit. I miss him dearly and would like to know if there is any way to find out what he was. I know this is quite a vague question, a bunny with blue and white overalls, but I am getting desperate and thought I would give this a try. He may have been Gund, but I am not sure...Any suggestions on where to look next on how to find out what he was or how to get another one would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Back in the 70's I owned a toy car that transformed into a Hotrod, after pushing the button down on the back of the bumper it would open and become longer and exhaust pipe would protrude, and expose the chromed engine. Then take off ant great speeds.No batteries or wind, it worked when you squeezed the car back together again to look like a normal car. (Some sort of spring wind mechanism) The model I had was a yellow Volkswagen bug. My brother had a red Dodge or similar model. I do remember the tires were a soft rubber.Such a cool toy.Approx 8 or 9 inches long.When expanded it was approx 12+ inches long. I have no idea who made this. And searched hi and low on the internet. Can you please help me to find more information? Thank you in advance Bruno
car - windup - 1970's
I had a toy car in the 70's, it was a yellow volkwagon that after winding it, you would press a button down in the back and it turned into a hot rod with exaust pipes that pertruded and then it took off at great speeds. it was about 8 or 9 inches long and when it transformed it was about a foot long. any ideas who made it and what it was called? thanks Bruno
I am trying to locate a type of toy car circa late 70s, early 80s, possibly Japanese. I have the wheels which I'll try to explain. .The wheels are made from black plastic, slightly less than 1 inch (22mm) in diameter, approx 1/4 inch wide (7mm). The tyre portion has well defined text around: "205/70HR-14", "GRAND PRIX, "GX-501". Assuming 14 means a 14 inch rim, the size roughly points to 1/24 scale. Note however the plastic material is clearly from a toy and not a styrene model kit. The wheels are not solid - the exposed side has tyre detail described above, while the inner side is a hollow cavity with bit that slides onto an axle. Instead of having a holow area for a rim (like a donut shape), the tyre has a solid flat recessed area where a 1/2 inch (13mm) rim or hub cap sockets in from the outside. The hub is black plastic features hub, lug nuts and spoke detail. There is no tread on these tyres. The two rear wheels have a wide/flat depression where a removable flat rubber band would fit around the wheel (or flat rubber O ring). I am assuming for traction. Suggesting a pull-back or wind-up type of toy perhaps. The front wheels are normal, but have no tread, just a flat area and a seam from the mold. Appreciate any leads, no matter how small, to help in my search.Cheers Dane
Card Games
I am looking for the card game Skeeter from the 1960's. The cards all contained insects and the object of the game was to pass out all the cards and then turn them over (like war) but the first person to slap the Skeeter (mosquito) card got the pile of cards underneath. I have my original deck which is a poor shape but would like to get a set for my granddaughter who loves to play the game.

Dart gun game.
Around the mid - late 1950's I remember one of my cousins getting a game for Christmas. It consisted of a target and a dart gun. The target was flat with a chicken painted on it. At the rear of the chicken was an egg which stuck out slightly from the board. If you hit the egg with the dart, a plastic egg would fall out, as if the chicken had laid the egg.
Desktop Toy
I have a desktop toy, but I don't know what it's called. It's a 10" square wooden frame with three stiff wires in it: Two projecting from the bottom and one, in the middle, extends from the bottom through the top. A string goes from one side of the frame to the other and is wound around the middle wire such that, when it is pulled from either side of the frame, a ball at the end of the string spins around the wire and then usually winds around one of the other wires. At first glance, the toy looks old, ca. 1920s -- and its origins probably are old because its a simple concept -- but one plastic washer that facilitates the spinning middle wire strongly indicates this toy is probably from the late 1950s at the earliest and could have been made even more recently than that.
Discovery Toy CD from 1985
When I was a child my Mom bought what she believes to be a Raffi CD from Discovery Toys in 1985. I grew up singing to the CD everyday and now would like to find it for my daughter.

Disney Music Box
I have a music box that was given to me in the the early 1980's, it's a snake charmer sitting on what looks like a large white flower. He's holding a gold flute and in front of him is a red, yellow, and blue basket with a snake that bobs up and down when the music plays. It plays "It's a small world", you wind it with a white disk on the bottom and it has metal switch that will stop/start the music and spinning. "Walt Disney" is baked into the ceramic of the flower. My question; can anyone tell me where it came from? I was only about 5 when I got it, and no one in my family remembers who gave it to me. I have never seen another one like it and want to know if possible when & where it was created, and if anyone else has one? Thank you for your time. Diana

DOLL - Blonde, blue-eyed
We lost my daughter's baby doll in Vietnam and I'm trying to find another one somewhere. It is a hand-me-down from her grandmother,aunts and cousins. Her grandmother says it's about 27 years old but I think she is thinking of another doll. I remember seeing a copyright date on the back saying either 1997 or 1998 or 2000. I'm not really sure. The doll has (dirty) blonde rooted hair with blue eyes (open/no eyelids that close) and a partially opened mouth (smiling); she has a soft pink body, with plastic/vinyl limbs and head. She was either 12 or 14 inches long. I have a photograph, if I could email you.... I would really greatly appreciate any help you could offer. We've already bought the blanket from ebay that was lost with the doll. Thank you.
We have a baby doll and it is stamped "1998 DSI INC." on the back of it's neck--it crys, yawns, laughs, sleeps, etc. Anyway, you can't get the doll to stop crying unless you put it's bottle into it's mouth. Guess what--we lost the bottle LOL. So the crying won't stop. We want to get another bottle for the doll but we can't find the bottle, DSI, the name of the doll, or anything related to the doll. Please help!

It had magnetic food that would sit on the stove and flip over with a touch of a button, it also had working washer and dryers. I want to say the name of the dolls were Lisa and lori but i'm not sure...Do you have any idea what i'm talking about??? I know one of the dolls had red hair, the food that came with it was round and you would sit it on the stove, and turn or push a button and it fliped over. Help...I really want to find one of these.
DOLL-Laughing or Frustration
A friend of mine has a doll she thinks is from the 1980's. The doll has a plastic head with neon colored mohawk hair. The doll's body has a colorful print and bowtie. It makes a funny noise when you shake it or move it side to side. A person selling it on ebay said it was made by Ertl and called it a laughing doll. My friend calls it a frustration doll. I was wondering what it is really called, and if there is any information about it's worth or beginnings.

doll-with a key
I remember when I was a child (early 90's or late 80's) I had a plastic doll. It wasn't a person, I think it was an animal, I do remember that it was pink and it had a white tail, kind-of like a bunny tail. It came with a key to open it. The torso was rounded and hallow. At the top of the chest there was a lock to put in the key and the door didn't open sideways but opened top to bottom. There were different kinds because I remember a gray or blue one that I wanted. Any ideas?
doll-yellow gingham
I am trying to locate a doll that is made of yellow and white gingham checked material. It had yellow gold yarn hair. She was wearing a green and white print dress with a white hat like a dust cap. I thought the doll was made by Fisher Price and had a name of Abbey or Abigail. I had purchased one in 1977.
Dramatic Play-Driving
I have seen a stand that you can set in front of a child sitting in a chair that has a steering wheel and a base with the accelerator and brake on it. I don't know what it was called or where I can find one. Any ideas?
I was trying to find out what a type of toy is called. I know they used them for Barbie and for Monsters. The gist is you would put three plates down a head, torso, and legs and put a piece of paper over it and using a crayon or pencil shade it to make the figures stand out. I can't remember what they were called but know that in the early 80's my girl neighbors had the ones for changing outfits on barbies, and a neighbor boy had one with monsters like the creature from the sea, werewolf, etc.
Would you recommend this DVD? My daughter is 3 and is fascinated "getting dressed"!! Thanks for your help!!
early 60's reversing (?) colored short wood slats toy
What am I trying to fully remember? A friend had a simple toy made from colored short wood slats that were held together with two (2) thin straps of fabric. When these wood slats were moved, turned over, in a special way the order and the placement of the colored wood pieces seemed to change position. I was so young that I can not fully remember more - could be a magic trick. Thanks!
Early electronic game - simon says (simple simon) clone, mimic, memo
This electronic game was made in the mid 70's, similar to the SIMON game, it is in the shape of a cross with 4 round buttons, red, blue, green, yellow, you had to repear the pattern of lights, as you got them correct it would go faster and faster. I thought the name was mimic or memo, but searching the net doesn't show anything of those names.
I got this doll in 1993 for my newborn daughter. She and I are now looking for the 1993 version. It has yellow loopy yarn like hair. NO HAT!!! Has a little rosebud in its hair. Has a white collar. Pink wash cloth like body. Tan face and hands. Three little rosebud's going down the front.... kinda like buttons. Small oval and blue eyes. There was a little curve for the nose and a small mouth. The facial features were NOT sewn on. They were just part of the material. The manufacturer is eden. Not sure if it was recalled and later discontinued. Cannot be found in stores due to the curly hair. Had to cut my daughters dolls hair to prevent circulation damage to the fingers. Want another doll in as good condition as possible. I have a baby box for her but she's not ready to give up her doll. email me if you have one, know some one who has one, or where I can get the doll. Thanks, Lynn
educational toy
I had a toy in the 60's that taught foreign languages. There were little plastic pieces perhaps half the size of a playng card with the word displayed on it an a picture as well. The piece had male and female ends so that you could link several of them together to say a phrase. You would lay them on top of the toy, which I think was roughly the size of a pc keyboard but thicker, and feed them through an area not unlike the way you would run tape through a reel to reel tape recorder. I remember it spoke English, Spanish and perhaps French. It may have been made by Hasbro or Mattel but I'm only guessing there. It HAS been over 40 years. Any ideas?

Fairy Tales Jukebox
In the mid/late 70s, I had a green 'jukebox' type toy that played fairy tales. The most memorable being "CInderella" with the song lyrics "Cinderella, I have found you, let me put my arms around you, my dreams have come true. Cinderella, I love you." I have no idea who made it or what it was actually called.
fashion/stencil/tracing activity
I am trying to locate something I played with as a child (1989-1994). It was a stencil of a female figure that you would trace over a scene. Examples of the scenes were in front of a movie theater, in front of a store window, in front of a pizza shop, on the beach etc. So you would trace the scene with tracing paper, then you would pick a body figure and use the stencil to trace it onto the background scene and then you would draw on outfits and add stickers that came with the set. (for example a slice of pizza or a beach ball). I do not know the name of this toy or the maker. But I would really like to locate an existing copy of this activity set. Anything you can do to help would be great. Thanks!
I have one of these still in the package...not in the best of shape, corners bent and whatnot...but still unopened. Is there a good value on this? I want to sell it on e-bay or something and don't know what to bid to start at.

Figure - Monster - 15 Inch
I have a 15"high by 8" wide brown with silver torso monster. It has 4 fingers, two on top and two on the bottom that look like claws. It has 2 toes on eack foot. The ears stand out left to right, and the so called skin around his mouth, looks like a foo-man-cho mustache. It has a reddish clear point on the top of his head, and the two front teeth are of the same color, apparantly glows around light. The only marking on this is "made by Hasbo Inc 1986". I called Hasbro, but to no avail. My son seems to think there were 3 different monsters made for this set. One looked like it was covered in slime according to him. But anyway, would you be able to tell us what this is or from. It's just driving us crazy because we can't find any info on this. Thank You

Fisher price toy movie camera with "movies"
When I was young, around 1981, I got a toy movie camera that played movie tapes. I'd like to find thew toy on ebay, but I don't know what it was called and haven't had much luck. I think it was Fisher-Price. It had oblong yellow plastic movie tapes that you put in the camera. Turning a crank and holding the camera up to light would let you see the flipbook-style film through the viewfinder. They had no sound. Some of the movies were Snoopy and The Pink Panther. What was the toy called??

some codes that are enter in for the game genie will not work. is something wrong with my game genie?
Hi, i'm looking for the name of a game from the early 80's that was 2-Player dinosaur bone collecting game. However, it was a skill and action game. The "gameboard" was a big injection molded "pit". Inside the pit, there was about 20 plastic dinosaur bones. There were (2) dinosaurs mounted to the edge of the pit on swivels as opposing players. The dinosaur could tilt down, open its mouth via a lever, and then grab a bone in its mouth, and the player needed to place the bone into its dinosaur cave. There were (3) different types of bones, ribs, femurs, and triceratop skulls...all with different point values. Players scrambled until there were no bones left. Player with the highest point total in their cave wins. Kinda like Hungry Hungry Hippos, but with a little more dexterity and scoring variation. I've looked on ebay and BGG but could not find something similar. Can you help? Thanks.

Hobby Horse
In the late 60's/ early 70's, I had a moulded plastic ride on horse/pony. It was orange/brown in color. It was about 3 feet tall to the saddle. When you sat on it it had spring action when you pushed the foot pegs and pulled the hand grips it would walk. Similar to marvel the mustang by marx toys. It was similar in appearance as pogo pony, only I believe it had plastic legs not aluminum. And if I remember correctly, it had a sound box with galloping hoof sounds. My mother bought it for me at the goodwill, so I do not know exactly what year it was made, or if it is even from the USA. I know I was born in 1968 and played with it from three years old and on. Thanks, Denise

Makit & Bakit
I purchased a Makit & Bakit charm jewelry kit about two years ago at a local craft store (kit #55106, bar code 0 87569 55106 8). While the packaging states that it is "safe, non-toxic", I have concerns about the level of lead because the necklace and findings were made in China. I do not want to give this craft to a child if there is a potential for lead exposure. The regulations for the amounts of lead in toys may have changed since I bought this product. Please let me know if Quincrafts has had any recalls on this product and comment on how "safe, non-toxic" this product is. Thank you.

mid 60's Plastic saucer spinning, wind up pull toy
Sorry I was unable to provide a more brief explanation of this toy, but I have been trying to find anyone that has a picture of a hard plastic toy I had in 1967 that was shaped like a flying saucer-approximately 8-10 inches in diameter (I beleive it was red on one side, yellow on the other), had string attached on both sides with pull handles attached. You would wind up the string, and then pull the handles apart. The saucer would spin while unwinding, and rewind itself up again, giving you a continuous motion. I believe the toy had a few wholes cut in that made it whistle while it would spin. I appreciate your help in finding any photos, if someone has one for sale.

Several years ago, like 10-15, my aunt bought my sister a small grey kitten. Its about 1 1/2 in tall by 1 1/2 in wide. It has a pacifier in its mouth and a diaper on its bottom. The diaper changed colors when it got wet. I think the toy was possibly made by Mattel, but I am not sure. However, my grandmother kept this toy kitten and gave it to my 3 year old daughter. Recently, my 2 year old son through a temper tantrum and lodged the kitten in the garbage disposal. It is terribly destroyed and my child is devastated. Can you help?

miniature doll in hamburger
when I was little (during 1980's) I had a miniature doll with green hair, she lived in a hamburger that turned into a house. There also was one that lived in a slice of cake, and I believe one that lived in a shoe. Do you happen to know what those were called?
Miniature Keyboard/Piano
I have been searching on eBay and to find a childhood toy to no avail. I am looking for a really tiny miniature keyboard/piano. I was born in Minnesota in 1980... I know I had a couple of them in 1988... maybe earlier than that too. I think it ran on a teeny, tiny battery because they notes would go sour after a while and eventually not play anymore. It came with a little plastic case that held it, that you could flip open. The cae had a little clear plastic pocket for the sheet music that came with it. Usually it taught you how to play "Do-Re-Mi"... maybe only one or two songs per set. The keyboard was so small that I liked to use it for my barbie dolls! Obviously rectangular, it measured about 4-4 1/2" long and 1 1/2- 2" in width and 1/4" in depth. I really wish I could find some of these! I don't know who made them.. I probably got them at Walgreens, Traget, and/or free in cereal boxes occasionally. Hope you can help:) Thank you.
missing my old toy

Model Airplane- Fantastical Battery Powered German fighter with flapping wings
Early to mid 1970's I had a snap together, battery-powered airplane model. It was an imaginary warplane that sat on a heavy gauge wire on a plastic base. Here's the thing. When you spun the four blade prop it started a small electric motor that spun the propeller, pistoned the nose mounted machine guns back and forth and flapped the wings up and down which caused it to bob up and down on the wire stand. I believe it was a fanastical German plane. It was definitely red in color. It was a strange squat shaped fuselage with a clear plastic canopy. If you can help me ID this toy, I'll name my first born after, I swear!

montgomery ward metal doll house
My parents gave me a Montgomery Ward metal dollhouse approximately 1948.

Have you had others contact you regarding this? Is there a $ for this item? If so, what is the price range? Thx!value to this

Mosaic tile like toy with different colored pieces.
Mid 80'S I would guess. I am looking for the name of a toy made of a little grate clear plastic piece with hole in the crate. On this grate you could put little colored tiny pieces that looked (battleship pieces -smaller version). Tiny square and longer pieces. With these pieces you could create almost mosaic tile like art pieces.

musical toy from 60's or early 70's
Growing up in the 60's/70's, I had a musical toy which I have been trying to locate through sites like e-bay, but have had no luck what-so-ever. The toy I am interested in was such that by putting pieces together in different ways created a different musical instrument. I do recal that thsi toy's main base component was red and that it had a handle that resembled a water faucet from an outside hose. If you can help me to identify this, it would be awesome! Thank you -
My monchichi has been my best friend!
I have had this monchichi doll (as well as the original Cabbage Patch Kids doll) since I was 5 years old(that's 1982). A friend of mine told me that they would be worth some money. They have been in my life for so long that I don't think I could part with them. My kids even know them by name (Num-Num & Joey)! They are in perfect condition because they were by first "kids"! Can anybody tell me how much they would be worth just out of mere curiosity?

Old Man rubber face puppet toy
I remember ordering this toy which was a rubber hand puppet of an old mans face who was bald had a moustache and had three holes in the back of it so you could contort its face with three fingers. It might have been five slots. I ordered this toy from Johnson Smith company catalog circa 1980-1985. This rubber face old man hand puppet was also the mascot for the heavy metal group music band called Anthrax. As I said he is bald, with a moustache, and basically its just his face as the puppet with three slots in the back.

Plastic/Domesticated Animal Figures
In the late 70's/early 80's, I had a collection of plastic animals that were dressed as humans. On the bottom of them, they had a metal stick that was sticking out. You could buy houses, etc. for them and when you put them in their house/car, the metal stick would push up and down and make their heads and arms move. They were sold to be able to insert them in these different places.
