Pound Puppies :: Galoob ~ Plush
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.

"Welcome to the wonderful world of lovable, huggable Pound Puppies and Pound Pur-r-ries. These soft, cuddly puppies and kitties were a smash hit toy sensation in the 1980s. Now Galoob is proud to reintroduce these adorable pets in a smaller, cuter size. There are long-eared and short-eared pups and kittens in lots of colors...some with spots and some without. We're also introducing the Brush 'n Style Puppy, a pretty puppy you can style in lots of ways with a variety of beauty accessories."
