ABC Blocks
Where did ABC blocks come from?
abc's plush toy
I'm looking for a toy that says the ABC's and on it's belly the letters light up. I thought it was a leapfrog or vtech toy, but I have done many searches and now I'm not so sure. The last place I saw it was at a Walmart store in July 2007. Can you help me? Thank you.
I am trying to recall the name of a rubberized and/or clay (some sort of spongey, bendable substance) boys action figure from the early to mid 1980s. Along with the manufacturer's packaging, it came packaged inside of a dinosaur-looking egg that could fit inside an adult's entire hand, the figure all bent up inside of it. The figures, if I recall, were swamp-themed or something non-human. You could pull their limbs off and move them to other parts of their bodies. Not very many to choose from, maybe a total of 10 figures. I specifically remember my boy cousin and I playing with these, although he cannot remember. Thank you for your help!
Action Figure - Who is he?

I have a "jack in the box" that is Alice in Wonderland, and it has a knob to turn the story which dispays on the front of the box.

Battery operated tin chef toy.
In the late 60's/eary 70's there was a toy that I used to play with. It was a hand-me-down from older brothers/sisters/cousins, so it may have been a 50's-60's vintage toy. It was a chef standing over a square tin oven. The batteries went in the bottom of the oven, I think either 2 or 4 "D" cell batteries. The chef would move and flip his skillet.

board game- alphabet race
I remember playing a board game in the early to mid 90's in which the board had the alphabet and each player had a peg in a hole next to a letter. There were cards with objects on and you would pull one and have to name an object that would go with the category of objects shown on the card. (I believe this game was supposed to help children learn the alphabet. For example you would start at A and the card pulled might have foods on it, so you would name a food that starts with the letter A. The first person to get there peg to Z won. Does anyone remember what this game was called so I could find it on E-bay?
Board game- Mr. Spin the Nose
Do you know of this game or what company made the game. I was probably about 8 so it was 1981 when I had this game, but I think it was a hand me down from a family member. It was such a great game with removable sheets that slipped ontop of the game board to transform it into several different games. The spinner was attached to the board and was "Mr spin the nose" with the spinner in place of his nose. He had a perfectly round white head and a red nose. I've looked all over the web and can't find it. I'd love to find out more about it. Thank you for your help, and the fantastic site.

Doll with growing hair
I remember having a doll in the 1980's (mid 1980's) and she had a butterfly on the side of her head. When you raised her arm, her hair grew and you wound her other arm to pull the hair back in. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of this doll!

Doll-1980's, rubber clothing
In the 1980's (i think around 1985), there were rubber dolls around 5 inches tall with rubber short hair cuts. The legs were fused together. The dolls came with either red hair, blond hair or a latin one with brown hair. They had rubber clothing that you could put on the dolls and plastic hats that had fake hair attached to them. I think they each came with a rubber tutu and were similar to the large polly-pockets. the dolls had shoes painted on and underwear/undershirts painted on as well. do you know what these dolls were called and who made them?

Dollhouse - Better Homes and Gardens
I am wondering if anyone has any pictures and/or information about the Better Homes and Gardens dollhouse that was sold in the very late 1970's or early 1980's? I had one myself and was in about 6th grade. I remember the daughter of the family had short blonde hair with a pink shirt and blue jeans. The mom had very short brown hair and wore a skirt. There was also a dad and little brother. The living room was 2 story with beige carpet (I actually got my mom's vacuum and vacuumed it with the little attachment), then came the dining and kitchen on the bottom floors, with a stair at the far end leading upstairs. There was a kids' bedroom, then a bathroom (I think - or it could have been a nursery but pretty sure it was a bath) then the parents' room. I remember my parents got me the dollhouse and my other relatives bought all the different furniture to go with it. The dishwasher even opened and you had real looking dishes (plastic though) and silverware to put in it. Anyway, no pictures of it survived in the family photos and my younger sisters trashed it later on. Any help would be great. Thanks!
I am trying to find a dollhouse I had in the early 80's. It had a small fake grass front lawn.

I do not remember the brand.
Dollhouse-late 80's-early 90's
I am looking for a dollhouse that I had when I was a child. It wasn't a well made one, it was pink, cheap plastic, it might have had white shutters but I'm not sure. I think it was a townhouse, I remember it had colored furniture, like pink plastic beds (the bedcovers were either painted on the bed or were maybe a sticker?) I loved this dollhouse and my mother threw it away and now I am looking to see if I can find one anywhere. I don't remember the name brand or much of anything else about it. I know i don't have much of a description, but I'm trying my best to remember it.Please help
Doll-Japanese Made
I owned a doll that was purchased for me at FAO Schwartz in 1979 or 1980 in Troy, MI. I believe that it was Japanese made. She was about 15-18 inches with beautiful clothes and striking iridescent deep blue eyes that had no whites to them. She wore Victorian style clothes and heavy black boots. I have never seen another doll like this and would like to get another one but I have no information to start looking. Her head and limbs were plastic with a cloth torso. Also, I remember that it was a rather pricey doll. I believe that it may have cost $100.00 or so in 1979. Thank you very much for all input. -Maria

Dolly Toy Pin ups - Disney
I have a question about the Pin-ups from Dolly Toy the “Casey Train” from 1950-1960 that I’m hoping you can answer. I’m curious why some of the pin-ups have an “arm connection” , two hands joining the cars together between the Pinocchio caboose car and the Mickey mouse car but other sets (from the same time era) do not. I’ve seen both and both and say they are from Dolly Toys? Do you happen to know why? Thank you for you time.

Please let me know if you have any information on this item. Today's toy's that are similar are very small compared to what I used to play with. Again, Thanks for your help. Chris

Game from Early 1970s Drop Opponent's Discs to Win
It was not a board game. It stood upright on a table. I believe it was blue, all plastic with plastic parts. It was for two players. It had a clear door on each side facing each player. Each player would open the little door on his side and hang these little colored discs (they were orange and pink) from these pegs. One couldn't see what the other was doing. I could pull on the little pegs on my side (they had a little spring action) and if a disc was hanging on that peg on your side, it would drop. I think that if I got all your discs to drop first, for example, I was the winner. I have seen a few people asking about what seems to be the same game on here but not sure they have gotten a response.

Gingerbread House Board Game
I remember playing a game from about the 1960s or 70s, but I'm not sure when exactly it was made since it was a game handed down to me as a child. I haven't seen the game in years and was wondering if you remembered what it was called and any information from it. In the game, you went around the board and gathered sections to a gingerbread house. The object was be the frist to collect all of your pieces and build your gingerbread house.
I had a toy (or game?) in 1970 or so that consisted of a giraffe's head, a set of pegs to form the giraffe's neck, and a box to guide the pegs. To play, I'd put the giraffe's head on the box, then start shoving pegs into the box. Once the box filled with pegs, the giraffe's head would rise higher and higher with each peg until it finally fell over. Do you know what toy or game this was?

keychain - egg toy - 1990s
Looking to identify a toy that came out in the 90s. It was a keychain "pet" toy, shaped like a chicken egg. Half the egg would open up, triggering (what I'm guessing is) a spring release. Inside, under a clear plastic dome, was a nature scene that would animate. Such as I believe one of them had a pre-historic scene with a dinosaur or sabretooth tiger that would vibrate a bit or move around. It was not digital and not Tamagotchi (or Digipets or other knockoffs), as they came out years before Tamagotchi. Many Many thanks!

Life Size Building Blocks
In the mid to late 80's, my parents purchased several sets of life sized building blocks from Toys R Us. I don't remember what they were called or the brand name, but i would really like to buy some somewhere for my own children. Each block was about 18" square and maybe 3" thick. They had 3 tabs on two sides, and 4 tabs on the other two sides so that they could interlock with each other. As i remember, they were brightly colored in blue, red, and yellow. They were of a very sturdy plastic, and hollow inside. We used these blocks to build forts and all kinds of other things. If you could tell me the brand name, that would really help me to track some down today. Thank you very much!

You can make drawings of buildings, etc, by moving the pellets around to different holes. I was born in 1968 and played with this as a child.

I'm trying to find product info on a tan bunny made by Manhattan Toy. It was bought in Oxford, England in 1994. I need to find a replacement as it was recently misplaced, and has great sentimental value. I can find a picture if that would be helpful. It is about 10 inches tall, with long, narrowish ears that stick out. The underside of the ears, feet and hand pads are a slightly lighter color.
Man-in-the-Moon-Faced Rubber Ball
I was born and spent my first 41/2 years in Chicago. At that time, I have a hazy but distinct memory of playing with a rubber ball that had a man-in-the-moon face on it. I remember it being called a Tommy Ball. My most distinct memory is of being very disappointed upon losing one (I'm sure I lost many.) and badgering my mother to buy me another. I see an image of a display in a Woolworth's (or similar) with the balls unwrapped and available to be picked up and paid for. The ball was probably about the size of a tennis ball--small enough to be picked up in one hand and thrown by a 4-5 year old. Anyone have memories of this toy? I can find nothing about it.

Matchbox Build-a-truck and road system
Approximately 20 years ago I used to play with a Matchbox brand Build-a-truck (plastic chassis and parts that could be put together using a screwdriver 'drill' with a green bit (attach) and red bit (detach)) and also a Matchbox brand plastic road network with sections that connected with tongue and grooves, road signs, petrol stations, carparks etc. The Build-a-truck also came in Build-a-plane and, I think, Build-a-boat. I'm trying to find replacement parts for the road set and I would love to find any other build-a-toys full-stop. I've googled, searched on e-bay, written to Mattel, looked on Matchbox sites but I can't find any reference to them, let alone information on where to get them. They are definitely matchbox, because it's stamped on both toys. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Monster Making 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 molds 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, Kevin.
monster truck arena with pull sled
during the mid 1980's when monster trucks were just starting to get famous, I believe matchbox came out with a full arena for their monster truck line complete with hard plastic "crushed cars" and a blue tractor pull sled. The playset consisted of a few garage bays and a vinyl mat that rolled up into the bays when not in use. Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
Motorcycle Stunt Bikes
Growing up in the 80's me and my brother both received motorcycles that you reved up and then they took off, his was black and mines was white. No matter what they hit, the would pop wheelies or do flips but you couldn't stop them. My son just got a Fantastic Four toy which is very similar and it brought back so many memories. Any help you could give me would be great.
Motorized Toy
I had a toy during the mid to late 70's that consisted of a single wheeled motor that would drive around a gray plastic track and at different points along the track, automatically exchange various construction equipment themed bodies that would hold little black plastic balls. This motor would be activated to go forward or reverse by the track itself at different points, and had a little peg on the bottom to make it ride in a groove on the track. There was a loader body, a scooping body, a dump truck type body, and others. These would all rest on supports and sort of float until the motor came around and picked them up to perform the next task with the balls. I remember that one area had a zig-zag track where the balls would be dumped in and descend down to be scooped up in a different area. I loved this toy, but cannot remember what it was called.

Multiplication Toy
In the mid-1980's, I had a toy for helping with multiplication. It was on a red plastic board (approximately a 12 inch X 12 inch square) with white squares on top. Each small white square had a multiplication problem (from 1X1 to 9X9 in columns and rows). When you pressed down on the white squares, the answer appeared (the answer was in black ink and was visible when the white square was pressed down). I have no idea what it is called or how to find one. Can you please help?

Old Metal Toy
I am having trouble finding the value of an old metal toy I came across lately. on the front of this metal toy is the name "Gari-Gar" and directly under that it says PATS:PEND. underneath the big yellow farm-like looking toy I see the following: Product of SWAN HILL Pleasanton,Calif..U.S.A. and further more there is a stamp the reads U.S. Patents 2502843 D152785. It is a pretty cool and certainly pretty old. Do you have any thoughts about what I can do??? Thank you very much for your time...
old mohair mechanical pull toy.
hello, i have come across an old mechanical plush/mohair pull toy. I am trying to figure out the manufacturer and it's age. It is a white terrier dog with black ears. It is furry but not like modern day fur, but I know it's not real fur. It has a red tube attached at the back of his head at his collar, I will call it, the led. The led isn't that long and it ends this metal squeeze handle at the end. It appears that when you squeeze it a wire pulls through the red tube led, the dogs rear legs move forward, he opens his mouth that shows a tonge and a row of top teeth. (composite, or paper mache') when you stop squeezing the spring metal handle he resumes to a standing on all fours position. Oh, he lets out a squeak bark too. He has very small tin/metal wheels on the bottom of his four feet. He has glass eyes and a red plastic collar. Who do you think made him? How old do you think he is? thanks for yur help, Kim

How can I find out what an item like this is worth? I have multiple sleds that are wood with the metal sled. Thank you.
I was born in 1969 and shortly after I received a giant larger than lifesize red ball. The inside was hollowed out and you were meant to crawl in it and someone could roll you around. I am sure they are not safe and cannot be purchased anywhere, but I have not seen one since. Can you help remember what this thing was called? or who it was made by? I'd love to get my hands on one. We played with ours every day until our roughness caused it to crack and break.

Do you know the official name or company that makes the Owl Professor Math Quiz Calculator? Made in the 70's, Owl face, yellow trimmed. I have been successful in finding a similiar appearing calculator "Little Professor" but this is not the one. I am sure that it had an Owl face.
Packaged kids food
My sister and I remember eating a packaged, macaroni and cheese style pasta in wagonwheel shapes that had a space theme. We can remember it being terrible, and loving it. This was in the late 70's or early 80's. I know this isn't exactly a toy, but it was marketed to kids and thought I'd ask....
