Thread: who made it?

  1. #1

    Default who made it?

    When I was little I had a little orange dog cuddly toy. It had black ears, black eyes and a black button nose, was set in the lying down position, with a red loop on its head so you could hang it on a hook I think. I lost it on holiday in Cyprus years ago . Because I am a nostalgic type I would like to try to find a similar one to buy, I have looked on eBay but no joy, does anyone have any suggestions to the brand name or where I could buy one?
    The most similar pic is this:


    Although mine had no eyebrows completely black eyes, smaller nose and black ears.

    Long shot I know but any help would be welcome.

    Could it have been an Animal Fair Henry ? They came in different sizes.


    1960's and 1970's

    lol I feel like a right difficult g*t at the moment, not a pound puppy unfortunately. like I said that ebay pick I put up looks very similar head on but with the few variations I wrote earlier. Oh also it didn't have out-streched legs the back. Don't know if I'll ever find a similar one, it was originally from a car boot sale so I'm told so I havn't a clue when the thing was made, I owned it in the 90's though.
