action figure - Evil Manta from Little Mermaid
Is there an action figure of the Evil Manta from Little Mermaid?
Action Figure: 6-7 inch Cheerleader Red top, Blue mini skirt Blonde Pigtails
I'm trying to find reference to this toy, we originally posted for my neice in 1997 at a local Toys R Us. The toy line had similar plastic figures of a realistic nature (Doctors, mailmen, police officers, etc). Figures arms and legs could move but did not have bendable joins. I would like to find the company brand in an attempt to track down one of these figures. My neice just made the cheerleading squad, today, and this would be a fun little gift to commemorate her making the squad.Thank You in advance.

African Hunting Safari game
In the 1960's I had a game with African animals that popped out of the bushes and a hunter had to 'shoot' them before they retreated back into the bushes, tabletop game, can't remember who the maker was, any ideas?
Arts and Crafts Toy- Mouse Pens
My husband and I remember these pens that were in the shape of a mouse. They fit in the palm of your hand and had a tail. My husband thinks the tail was leather. The head of the mouse was the cap and the pens were like six or seven different colors. I would love to know there name and who made them!
Balls- Different colors and faces on each
I have been looking for these "ball" toys forever! I remember buying some when I was young; late 1980's-early 1990's. They were golf-ball sized rubber balls. Each one was a solid, bright color with a different character face on each. You could put them on "bodies", in cars, buildings(?), etc. The only other thing I can tell you is that they are not Blurp Balls (which I ran into a lot when searching). Those are scary! The ones that I am looking for are funny/ happy.If you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

Barbie Doll -- 1966
I am trying to identify a barbie doll and determine if she has any monetary value. Here is her description: Her lower back is stamped with "1966 Mattel, Inc." and "Made in China" She has a hole in her upper back with three white pull cords coming out of it. Each pull cord has a pink, plastic multi-faceted bead attached to the end. She pull strings are attached through her body to a pony tail on the top of her head. The pony tail is separated into three strands. Each strand has four rubberbands around it with a bead at the bottom which matches the beads on the pull cords coming out of her back. She is Caucasian with blond hair and blue eyes. Her lips are tinted pink (like she is wearing lipstick) She has non-removable pink post earrings. In the section which would be covered by underwear, she is embossed with a subtle "B" and floral pattern. Can you tell me anything about her? Thanks so much!

bicycle accessory - 1970's
Hello. Lovely site! what I'm looking for is a toy from the mid 70's ish. It was a plastic handlebar shape that stuck out of a box.

Cars on and off the track
In the mid to late 1980's there were a couple of toys I really want to know about. One toy was simply a truck that operated off of a single AA battery, you could interchange the bodies of the trucks and you had a choice of hard rubber tires or softer foam tires. What happened to these trucks and where can I find them now? The second toy was a car that could be operated either by a single or multiple AA batteries and ran on a cylindrical yellow plastic tubing which was held together by small plastic plugs or red plastic junctions where you could intersect the track. I would really like to find both of these. Thanks for any help you can give.

When we were kids,I would guess middle to late 1960's or early to middle 1970's my sister got a charlie chalks doll, I have tried to google every way I could but no record of one anywhere.

Maybe they were charlie chalks vitamins and we ordered the doll with boxtops or something. it was one of those stuffed dolls. all material no plastic head or anything. can you find anything on this? the only thing I come up with on the internet is some charlie chalk video in the UK. thats not it. thanks

Childs Television with filmstrips
When I was a young kid (mid to early 70's) I had a television set that came with small 45 speed records and a filmstrip. You inserted the filmstrip, started the record player and it would tell the particular story. I remember the television itself being red. The filmstrips being about 5-8" long and about 1" wide. I'm not sure if I received it new, so it may have been hand me down. But I loved it. Who made it and what was it called?

Classic 80's spelling toy
Hi! I'm looking for a device I remember having as a kid (80's) that was blue and had a black LCD with green characters, I think. It had a keyboard on it, and it would Speak a word to you, which you would have to type out correctly to win. I can't for the life of me remember what it was called (for some reason the name "Tiger" springs to mind) and I've seen a device called a Coleco Talking Teacher that looks like what I'm thinking of, but not quite. Please help!

Clear plastic animals
As a child I used to have a large collection of clear plastic animals...they had some colors on them but were transparent.

COW - Plush stuffed toy cow
Looking for a stuffed black and white cow with a brown mouth appears to be smiling. It has large round googly looking eyes. Long thin arms and legs which give the appearance of the toy to be about a 10-12 inches long. The body is about the size of baseball. I have looked and looked all over the net, to no avail. I have a pic it you need it. You are my last hope. I do not know the manufacturer. Would have been made in the last 10 tens.
Crank Driven, two-person, car race toy mid to late 1970's. This tabletop toy looked more like a roller coaster that a racetrack. The main drive mechanism was two hand held cranks, (one for each racer). The cars were place at the bottom of a steep incline, where each car sat on a lift (or hook, Not sure). Each player holds a crank (sort of like a fishing reel but tethered to the toy with a cable) Whoever could turn their crank the fastest, got their car to the top first and then gravity took over and the cars would roll down separate tracks ending in front of the lift to race again. I played this game for hours on end. Then (poof!) one day it was gone.
do you know of it? and what it may be called? and who made it?
Crazy buggy battery operated red clown car with stunt track
In the mid to late 1970's I had a red colored clown car toy I think was called "Crazy Buggy" I believe the car ran on one D battery. The track was made of plastic and allowed the car to go up like a rollercoaster and spin end over end all the way down.The car also went up on two wheels on part of the track. The car was designed to interact with the track and do stunts. Could you please tell me who was the manufacturer of this toy and what it was named?

Disney Castle
I'm 21 years old, and as a child (late 80's early 90's) I had a Disney Castle. I can remember it having different blocks with all different Disney characters on them. I can't remember if you had to insert them somewhere, but I remember it making "magical" noises and it had Jimminy Crickett somewhere on it. You would put the blocks away in the back of the castle. I would really like to igure out what this toy was, I'd like to purchase one for my children someday. Hope you can help!
Sometime in the early to mid 1990's, my mum bought me a really neat kit toy, and there were even refill packs. What you did was put the "rocks" into the special shaker with water and the "rock" coating would dissolve off of the plastic faceted "gems" and then you could leave them be or snap them into silver painted plastic jewelry setting and then snap a ring backing or for a necklace. They even had different colors and shapes of stones and some kits had very intricate setting pieces, but you could change the stones out as much as you wanted. I cannot remember the name of it or even who made it, to save my life! It was one of my favorite toys. I even remember that the rocks tasted bitter cause well.

Dog - talking - Mattel - 1986
I have recently dug up a stuffed dog I had as a child, but haven't been able to come up with any information on its name, etc. The tag lists Mattel as the maker and the year 1986. Its maybe 20" tall, body is a tan color with darker brown ears, and has a voice box located in its head. It has sensors located on its back, tail, ears, and paws, and a small pink plastic heart on the left side of its chest. I remember that it would burp as say excuse me if you pat it on the back, would say ouch if you squeezed its ears or tail, and would say "Aww.. I love you too" when you hugged it. Any idea of what he's called?

Doll - Baby - Newborn Tender Love - 1972
A few days ago I received a 1972 Newborn Tender Love Doll (girl) that I purchased off of Ebay. The sellers ad stated that the dolls hair was in great condition and that all the hair plugs were good except two in the back but were not noticeable. Well, the doll is almost completely bald on the top and crown of her head. You can see all of her scalp and the holes for the hair plugs. I had one of these dolls when I was young and I don't remember the hair being this thin on top. It's thicker on the sides and back. Some of the hair plugs have just a few hairs but some have a lot. I believe this doll is missing a lot of hair. I've seen other dolls like it with thicker hair. I know it was supposed to be thinner and wispy but not balding. Can you tell me how this dolls hair is supposed to be? The doll also had ink marks and a musty smell. Another misrepresentation by the seller.

Drawing toy
In the late 70's, possibly early 80's, there was a toy that allowed one to draw different monsters. There were 3 parts, head, body, and legs. For each part there were 7 or 8 plastic molds. You would make up the desired combination for their monster, and place them in this holder. You would place a piece of paper over it and take the supplied purple crayon and rub it on the paper. The image of your monster would come through. Do you know what this was called?

Foam glider planes
Hello, trying to find information on toy glider airplanes (approx 8 to 10 inches long) available in the late 60' or early 70's. They were made of some sort of thin foam, and you put them together by sliding the flat wings through the flat body. Each plane was a different crazy character, I think they may have been called "Funny Flyers"? Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Folding Toy - 2 by 4 kind of cube
Its in my head let me try to convey the image. My favourite childhood toy consists of 4 by 2 segments of plastic, joined together at both ends which u can keep folding and it becomes a flat piece then a cube when constant folding occurs. At this stage the whole thing can be separated into 2 pieces. When one is folded it creates a star. When the 2nd is folded it is a hollow cube. The star can fit back inside perfectly. Does this make sense? Iv spent hours looking at rubiks sites and If I remember correctly the toy came out at roughly the same time. Does anybody know the name of this toy. Its driving me nuts. I could draw a diagram if need be?
FP Little People modern character
Hello - I have a question perhaps you could help me with regarding Fisher Price Little People (newer line, mid 90s to present): My daughter has collected all of the characters featured in the Little People video series except for one, the circus ringmaster. The only ringmaster figures I can find listed anywhere are Eddie and Michael versions, but the actual ringmaster character is completely different - and very common - in the videos. I find it hard to believe that Fisher Price would manufacture ALL of their movie characters except for one. Can you shed any light on the subject? Thank you!

game - Throw up? - 1980s
In the late 70s or early 80s I had a motorized game where you fed cardboard food into the mouth of the game and once it hit a certain point, the toy would then throw up the food. I always called the game "Throw Up" but I don't think that was the official name and don't know who made the toy. I have searched the internet to try and find it and have been unsuccessful. Have you ever heard of such a game and do you know what the official name of it was?

In the early to mid 1970s, I received a "green monster" from a relative. It has no label, so it could have been made by a craftsperson/amateur. I don't know what it's called.

HELP!!! Where could I possibly find a stuffed dog from 1997? We gave my baby girl "Lockett", as a newborn and she has slept with him nightly for 9 years.

Magnet Set with Stamped Tin Figures
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, there was an inexpensive magnet set, sold typically in 5-and-10-cent stores, with two magnets: one in a horseshoe shape and the other a bar or a circle, painted in primary colors. In the set were figures stamped in tin or other sheet metal: a horse and rider and a clown. There was probably a third figure, which I don't remember. All pieces in the set were probably no larger than 2 inches tall or wide. Do you know of an antique toy or other toy dealer that may have this set? Thank you.

Police car & Fire Chief Car from late 80s ..85 onwards atleast Clear bonnet doors open when lights are pressed
Hi there, I do actually have the police car with NO tyres and my cousin has the fire chief one. problem is I want to buy the pair new. off ebay or SECOND HAND. Now they were about 20 CM long representing a 4 door saloon from the 80s 1986-89 mabye even the early 90s but I dont think so. Mine is in storage a few thousand kilometers away so I cant just make it appear to read the bottom. The police car was Navy blue and the fire Chief car was exactly the same except RED. the Bonnet was Clear/See through and you could see a model of a silver enging wobble side to side when you pushed it and it must have been fiction driven. It was all plasitc with silver looking alloy styled wheels and tyres whioch were nice and smoothe. The two lights on top (red and blue) were small and square and actually represented buttons if you pushed one of the lights a door would open I cant remember what if anything the other light did. SOOO there you go any more details just let me know. They would have been boyught here in South AUSTRALIA but Iam sure were made from all around the world. ANY LUCK there and I cant wait to hear from you. I do have an abosloute incredible collection of TOYS and indeed various LAYOUTS of Hornby model railways Slot cars Model airports you name it and I never grew up so anywho. I also had a police car from the same era that was a bit longer representing a USA styled police car fromt he 80s it was white with a blue bonnet blue boot/trunk and when you push it it made the lights flash or come on. Again must have been bought here in Australia. look forward to anything you may find. I have goooogled and EBAYED for hours and hours and days and days and Iam at my tether. hope to hear from you soon.Josef.

I just bought a Porcelain Doll for my daughter's collection that is still in the original box which has: "Collection de Poupees" 1977 Sankyo - C-365(230365)-008 Made In Japan" written on it. It also winds up and plays a song. I have been researching it but cannot find any specific information on it, or if it is of any value. Dee

Pregnant? 18" doll
Can you identify and place a value on an unusual vintage doll donated to our mission resale shop? She appears to be pregnant, is key wound, wheels on feet, white shoes, jointed shoulders and legs, sleepy eyes, composition material. We have been unable to find any identifying marks or dates unless they are to be found somewhere inside the doll where we are hesitant to investigate.
There was a big lion puppet, it wore a denim jacket and it looked like a regular stuffed animal. HE has puffy hair and has a tail. I believe they sold it between the late 80's and early 90's. Do you know the name of the company or the toy itself. I need one of those puppets.
R. Dakin Beagle Puppet
1970's Beagle Puppet. I am lloking for any info on it. It has a PA REG No. 118, Made in Korea. I still have the puppet, but would like to find out more about him. "Freckles" is my most pride posession. I call him Freckles but not sure of his real name. He is brown and white. There is no year on it. My father bought him for me at a "Fluff N' Stuff" kiosk at Neshaminy Mall in PA.
Race Cars That Changed Direction
In the late 1980's or early 1990's our children had a toy that was a "tower" approximately 18 inches tall. It had some race cars with it that were one color on the top, and another color on the bottom, so whichever side was up, the car was right side up. As you placed a car in the tower it would start downwards in a back and forth pattern and as it reached the side of the tower it would flip over and change directions. You could watch the cars as they rolled downwards. It kept repeating this pattern, going from side to side and changing directions until the car reached the bottom where it came out and rolled across the floor. It was made of plastic and had three or four cars with it. We would love to find another one for our grandkids but don't know what brand it was or what it was called. Any ideas? Thanks, Phil

Recommendation for Active Toys - Cheeky Chick by Okiedog
I have an 18 month old son who enjoys active play. I saw that you recommended the Cheeky Chick toy by Okiedog (Best Toy for 2007). In light of your recommendation, I went on Okiedog's website to order when I discovered that they had a new toy called the "Fropper." I just wanted to know if you have reviewed this toy. If so, how does it compare to the "Cheeky Chick." Also, please advise whether you would recommend it over the "Cheeky Chick" based on my son's age. Both are priced the same. Thanks for all of your help.
Dear Dr. Toy, I am looking for a toy/book that may have been in production during the late 1960's or the early 1970's. I remember playing with a book/toy that when the cover was opened, inside was a type of dial. My memory has it as a telephone type dial. Anyhow, you were to spin this dial and a story would play out loud. If you spun the dial slowly, the story would sound distorted and slow. I think the "book" was like the main "player" and if I remember correctly there may have been separate little discs or something of the sort that you placed within the player in order to tell different stories which again, required your dialing motion to play. Did this thing exist? I swear it did. It is one of my clearest memories as a child. I had to have been about 3-4 years old. (born 1967) I have searched and searched and cant seem to find anything. Am I crazy?
I had a Good Humor ride on ice cream truck in the early 1970's? Have you seen any of these for sale, I haven't seen any on ebay? I am not even sure if i am searching it correctly or who the manufacturer was? Thank you so much.
Ride On Toy
In the mid to late 70's I had a six wheeled ride on toy that you would "pedal and steer" with the handles by braking in the opposite direction. I believe it was a light yellow color with black plastic wheels. It had a seat for one and 2 square holes 1'x1' (knock outs) on the bottom to get your feet caught in... Do you know what this vehicle was? Thanks, Jason

Ride on toy
In the late 70's/early 80's I had a yellow, plastic horse called "Buttercup". She was hollow and her front legs were one piece and so were the back and they swung in and out as you kind of rocked back and forth. The legs swinging in and out caused you to travel across the ground just by rocking... any ideas? I recall "Tyco" or something on here, but I don't totally trust my memory.

Skwish Classic by Manhattan Baby
Love this toy but is it safe for a baby to chew on a painted wooden toy"
I'm trying to identify a doll from the mid 1970s, which had a very small plastic body and a huge plastic head, with either blonde or plastic hair. The head was on a long string, which when pulled, would recoil back into the body and the doll would speak: one stock phrase I remember was " I think I'm losing my head over you". Did anyone else come across this rather bizarre doll in the 70s and does anyone know what it was called? Cheers.
Small doll and house
I was born in 1975 and somewhere between 78 and 81, I recieved a doll for christmas. She was pretty small, maybe 4 inches tall...estimated, and she had a large detachable skirt that was extremely long for her size.. She came with a round plastic base type house that was split into three different rooms by three walls and each was a different room with furniture. In the middle of the house (and where the walls) met was a small tube-like hole that the doll would sit in and the skirt would cover the entire house. It looked like the doll was standing in this big dress. When you took her out, you would take of the skirt and play with her in the house. But I think as a little girl, the skirt made her special. I wish I could figure out the name and find one...I have considered trying to make on... Thanks.

I am trying to find a humpty dumpty doll. I vaguely remember it being egg shaped with arms and legs coming off of it aproxiamately 8-12 inches tall, not including arms and legs.

Strip type cap guns
Dr. Toy - I am looking for any information on strip type toy guns I had back in the mid to late 80's. These guns were produced after real firearms. The had both handguns and rifles. The cool thing was when they shot the gun it cut the one cap from the strip and discharged it like a spent shell casing. You would remove the magazine and load another strip in them. Thanks for your help.
Stuff bear alarm clock
Hi, during the early 90's I was given a stuffed bear that was also an alarm clock. It's alarm stated "wake up, wake up, give me a hug." It had on a pajama suit that was bluish (I believe pin stripes) with a night cap on as well. Do you know where this is? For some reason as a child I decided I didn't want to keep the gift and took it back to the store, and now strangely almost 15 years later I regret it.
