Pound Puppies :: Galoob ~ Playsets
Pound Puppies went off the market from 1989 until 1996, when Galoob took over and re-launched the Puppies, this time as miniature plush. They also introduced many other plush animals lines such as Pound Ponies, Pound Jungle and Pound Ocean, but the most prolific addition to the line was the many miniature playsets they produced for little figures to play in.
There were two deluxe playsets produced. Each came with six figures. The Super Pound Play Ground was advertised as a Double Takes playsets.
I don't know if "Mansion" was it's official sales name.

Happy Honeymoon Hideaway
Amusement Park Fun
Circus O' Fun
This playset included Pound Jungle figures. The lion was also included in the "School" Hideway playset and the monkey and elephant in the "Jungle Park" Hideaway playset.
There were eight, maybe nine, Hideaway playsets produced. They were also produced with two different styles of handles; a solid handle with the "hole" filled in so it couldn't actually be used as a handle, and also with a proper handle which folded down too (the "filled" handles were sold in the USA and the "open" handles in the UK). Other than the differences in the handles the playsets themselves were exactly the same. Each playset came with three figures, pictured where known. The releases came with "flat" style figures and as the line was expanded the new sets came with the "upright" style figures.
