where can I find out about my toy airplane
I have this old Blue Mercedes 560 SEI TURBO Power Wheels type car that I used to drive around as a kid. I has a "Prestige Mini Motors" Emblem on the back. Two Red pedals. The floor is open and it takes a 6v Rechargeable battery. There is a forward/reverse switch along with a red push button and a two prong plug in the front. I've searched all over the internet trying to find something out about this car and I've found nothing! I can't find even a post about this car. Is it really rare? Are they one of a kind type things? I'm kinda guessing they're pretty rare since I haven't found anything about it! In any case I guess I'd like to know where to get parts because its missing a gear from the gearbox and the steering wheel is really loose and cracked. I'd really like to restore this thing with original pieces but if they're unavailable I guess I'll have to improvise a little something to get it to work. Thanks for help! Matt.

Help. I have snow white and the seven dwarfs by Ideal. BUT my dopey is the ventriloquist dopey, while the other dwarfs are smaller My snow White has no cloth she's all compos. She has Shirley Temple by Ideal on the back of her neck. I've been told that it isn't a complete set and that brings down the price.

Identity of Black Vinyl or Rubber Walking Doll from 1960s Made in USA
I am trying to identify my doll that was given to me in the 1960s. It is a black vinyl or rubber 36" tall doll.Her light brown eyes close when laid down,her arms and legs articulate for her to walk. My Great Aunt who lived in the los angeles area during this time, gave her to me for Easter one year. She paid $25 for her. I was born in 1956 and when this doll was given to me I was the same height as the doll and was afraid of her. I also had never seen a pretty black doll like this. I lived in the Sacramento area. The doll has her original black rubber shoes that have 36T Made in the USA on the bottom of both heels. The top of the shoe is stamped with a bow and the strap has eyelet holes acroos the top edges. There are some very very faint markings on the back of her neck below the hairline. All I can make out is a 1 B 4 or is could be 18 4, 1 D 4. The other markings below have disappeared over the years. I have never taken off head head to look for markings beneath the necck line as some have suggested to me. I am afraid I wouldn't be able to get it back on . She has pinkish red lip stick, slightly blushed cheeks, more of a european shaped nose, top eyeslashes, but bottom eyelashes are drawn on, and very thin arched eyebrows. She had long curly black hair.

I know the dog had a specific name and we cannot remember what it is. Does anyone remember this particular dog?

Looking for Nala and Simba Hand Puppets
Around the late 1990's (when the The Lion King first came out, 1994 I think exactly), the Disney Store was selling, no smaller than 7inch, hand puppets of Nala and Simba. I have them already (I got mine from Macy's), but they have gotten old and raggged with time. I've been trying to find replacements, but with no luck. If you cannot recommend a store to me, can you recommend a doll doctor to restore them?

Mickey Mouse and friends carnival playset
I was wanting to know if you could tell me where to find a carnival playset like one I used to have when I was a child. I'd say mid to late 80's. The toy was a plastic carnival rides playset that included mickey mouse and friends (maybe minnie, pluto, donald duck...etc.) and they fit on these carnival rides. I don't remember what company made it, but was curious if there was one available anywhere. Thank you
Hi all! When i was younger i had a Mickey Mouse toddler doll with a plastic head, white gloves, soft body, red undershirt and blue overalls. I have a photo and a section of it is in there but my mother gave it away when i was little. I have done some research and i was wondering if anyone knew where i could get one or someone who has one? I would be willing to pay to purchase one. Obviously, i cannot have the same one i had when i was younger but it would be nice to have a replacement one. It was a toddler toy and was given away in 1995 or 1996. Thanks.
In the early 1970s I had what appeared to be an original Micro Machine. It was made by ideal toy co. Hong Kong,1971. The interesting feature of this tiny car is that it came attached to a round base with a clear dome on top which doubled as a magnifier bubble. It is very detailed and appears to be made better than the later micro machines that became popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Do you recall what these tiny cars were called and the history of them. I believe Ideal later merged with Galoob (maker of the later micro machines) did they not? Thanks for your time.

I havent seen one since I played with it when I was a child and I unfortunately lost it. Really want to find my dad another one. He was stationed in Maine much of the time. Thanks Connie

Pluto/Goofy - Action Dog - 1950s
I am trying to identify and find a childhood toy from the early 50's. It was a pluto/goofy looking dog that had spring loaded front legs. It has a feeding bowl with a suction bottom and "tacky" food. You put the dogs face in the bowl and waited anxiously for it to release. Once it released the dog would flip in the air due to the spring. The anticipation was similar to a jack in the box. This was purchased at a airport gift shop in Cleveland. Seemed to be a simple toy that I enjoyed as a child. Would appreciate any help in identifying it/determing where I might find one.

I've been looking for a set of bendable figures from probably the very, very early 1970s. They featured a bendable figure from each of the 9 planets. Mars had a little green man with a bulbous head and two antennae. Venus guy had wings. Pluto guy had an orange dome in his chest. Jupiter guy was big, thick, and scaley. Neptune guy was, I think, water-based. You get the idea. I remember them very vividly and have never been able to find them. Any idea what I'm talking about, what they're called, and whether they still exist somewhere? I'd love to find them and, if nothing else, see photos of them. Thanks very much. Jim

Thumb-sucking panda bean bag
I have tried lots of so-called experts and no-one seems to know anything about a toy dating from the early 80's, perhaps the late 70's.

I bought a Today's Kids zebra ride on toy at a garage sale and would like to find out where to order replacement parts. The phone number on the toy itself isn't accurate. Do you know if they are still in business? Thanks, Cindy
toddler tape player (sesame street)
I had a sesame tape player for my toddler in 1994. It had the tape controls "locked" so only adults could set it. The toddler only had to press a green button to turn on the music or pink button to turn it off. When the cassette was over (or if no cassette had been inserted) it played "Sunny Days" or "People in Your Neighborhood". Which company made it? Are there still any toddler friendly tape players being sold today?
I have a yellow tonka toy chest from the early 80's. I can't find it anywhere online, do you know what this would be worth? I saw a similar question on your 2007 FEB listing about a tonka toy chest. Seems pretty rare.

Tops - wind up/rev up spinner tops
I am trying to find out the name, or the maker of the spinner top toys we had as kids in the 1980s. They had a round top, and then you revved it up to spin. I think they also had a connector piece so you could stack them on top of each other. Thank you in advance for your help.
Toy - Hologram

toy - musical snail
I am looking for a toy that I got as a birthday present around 1972 or early 1970's. It was a lime-green hard plastic snail with a circular, upright shell. The head portion pulled away from the body, with a long yellow strip of pliable plastic printed like a measuring tape connecting them. The head portion remained stable while the body portion rolled forward, slowly winding the yellow measuring tape inside of it until the two sections met again. As it moved, it played music (I don't remember what), while the rainbow-colored sides of the shell turned inside a clear plastic cover. Any idea who made it or what it was called? I have looked on e-bay and haven't seen any sign of it. I have it in pictures of my birthday in the early 70's.

Toy gorilla
This toy would have been made in the late 70s or very early 80s. It was a plastic toy gorilla around 8 inched tall with a dial on its back that moved its arms. It came with a catapult of sorts that shot a net to "capture" the gorilla. I can't remember what this thing was called or who made it and have spent a lot of time searching on the Interet for it to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
toy truck
I had a black and tan bronco with a male driver in the 70s the wheels came off the vehicle by twisting a center piece. The man looked like an explorer.

Toy-Fur strip that was a fad from the 1960's. Came in different colors.
Please can you help us? There was a "toy" we had that often was worn on the shoulder. When you stroked it it would move. It was approximately 8 to 10 inches long and 3 inches wide. There was suede on the underneath and fluffy 'real' fur on the top with a set of google eyes. If my memory serves me -- I think they were called Moon Doggies.

Travel Activity Game?
A few months ago I saw the ladies on the view touting their favorite picks for toys... Whoopie Goldberg showed a toy that was like a finding game - a tube filled with objects and a filler material. The tube would tell the child what to look for and then the child rotates it and looks until he/she finds said object. Have you any idea where I can get one or what it is???

I have an 11" Karen Kain ballerina doll, still in (crumpled) box. ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE APPRECIATED
I'm thinking of the name of the toy way back in the early 1990's that consisted of a vehicle (like a car or a helicopter), a black credit-card like mount, and a ripcord. The black credit-card like part could contain the vehicle (it was thick), and the ripcord. To play with it, one would remove the vehicle (from the front), mount it at the back, then pull on the ripcord to make the vehicle move.Please please please, what was the name of this toy again?
My father, born in 1942, received a stuffed bulldog as a small child. He kept it for years but it was burned in our house fire many years ago. It had a dark brown floppy body with a brown vinyl/rubber molded face (with the typical bulldog snear). it had a bell sewn inside one ear. it would mean so much to me and my father to find one of these or at least find out some information. thank you for any help! tina

Wake Me Willy alary clock
My little sister had a Wake Me Willy alarm clock several years ago when she was a kid. It was so "her" that it came to represent her personality in our family. We lost my sister to a car accident a couple years ago at age 19 and I would give anything to have one of the Wake Me Willy alarm clocks to bring some good memories and smiles to my family. Do you know where I can get one? Thanks!

Yellow Plastic Doll House
Hi Dr. Toy, When I was a child I received a doll house as a gift. It was in the later part of the 1980's. It was yellow and plastic, wasn't very big and the back folded down to reveal the inside of the house. It came with furniture in every room and I absolutely loved it. I also saw it as a pink houe and on the television show Full House. I was wondering if I could still get one somewhere. Now that I am older and married I would like to find one for my children. Thank you, Krista
