“Yes I did, his name is Andy. He is a gigantic bear … and I still have him, and he is still on my bed.”

“I did, I had a collection of stuffed bunny rabbits … my favorite was the one that had a book with it called ‘Leo the Lop.’”

“Yes I did. My favorite one was from when we went to Disneyland. I had one of Pluto. It was a dog.”

“Yeah, I had one. It was named Dave. It was a teddy bear. His head got chopped off.”

My whole block has dogs they don't take care of that bark all day, lawrence needs a way to report people without calling the police and having to go through that process.

If it is the stuffed dogs that are barking, you might not want to provoke this poster.

i had a stuffed deputy dawg! gave him to my kids many moons ago...he is, no more. :( i still have a stuffed "jerry", the mouse from tom&jerry...that guy is nearly 50 now! :)
film, i feel you; it's the same in the hamlet where i live. i cannot get over that the incessant barking doesn't bother the dog's owner, too??? aghhhhh. makes me crazy. sometimes yelling STFU out the window works, for a while. ;)

whatever sort of filler they put in toys back in the late 50's, early 60's; most likely had asbestos, lead, some other weird harmful ingredient... or maybe they are stuffed with gravy&biskits? :)

I had quite a few. Dapper Dan (who came with a blue plastic see-thru record, which I played constantly and irritated the heck out of everyone in the house).
And the talking Bozo the clown. I don't remember him ever working, though. Pull the string and it would just zip back in really quick. He scared the hell out of me. I learned to fix the Mattel pullstring talkers from the 60s several years ago. Back then, the only replacement belts I could find were at University Audio. I don't know what it was really supposed to be used for, but they fit perfectly.
Well over ten years ago I fixed a Mrs. Beasley for a lady I worked with. I ran into her late last year and that was the first thing she remembered!

Don't remember. But, the 50 or so Webkinz and the 30 or more care Bears I've bought ought to count for something.
