Puppy Dog Tails :: Figures
Puppy Dog Tails were produced by MIG in 1998. They were a series of small dogs and puppies of various breeds with plastic bodies and fabric ears. There were also playsets.

Mother & Baby Sets
There were at least three mother and baby sets produced. Each one came with an ID card, comb, ribbon and baby bottle. There was no difference between the individually sold adults and the
Animal Play Sets
Three different mother and baby sets were produced under the name "Animal Play Set" / "Dieren Speelset" in the Netherlands, I'm not sure who but they were seen in the shops around 2011. The quality of the toy is not as good as the original versions, and they differed slightly too. They came with a small can of food, a small bottle and a stethoscope.
The Poodle adult was a different colour and the patches on the St. Bernard adult were less defined. There was no Doberman adult sold separately, it appears that the Red Irish Setter mould was simply re-used with different ears. Maybe there was another puppy produced for one of the playsets?
They have the MIG 1998 markings, so were these sets also produced with the ones above or only as "Animal Play Set" figures?
