Title: Pound Puppies and Purries - 1980s (Tonka)
Post by: zuse on Monday 03 May 2010, 02:21 am
Thought I'd start a post for each incarnation of the Pound Puppies. I'll post a 1990s Galoob one too so that they don't get mixed up. :)

(I actually think there's a version out now as well, but let's stick with the vintage ones at the moment!)

This one includes the plush toys from the 1980s (Puppies and Purries), outfit sets, poseables, and even the PVC figures based on the original cartoon! :)

Add your pictures and information!

Here's an example of some of the vintage puppies. I cropped these images from scans of Sears Wishbooks (1985 and 1986) by wishbook on Flickr.

I have #6 in the first picture! And a few small ones and some little Pound Purry furries. I also have a lot of the minis from the cartoon. I'll dig them out when I get the chance.

When I was a kid I use to have Pound Puppy Bedsheets. There was some pretty neat knockoff items that were made like PP "inspired" figures I'd get out of the vending machine at the supermarket and some knockoff raincoats made by Totsy. But I haven't seen a pic of those recently.

Here they are. They have the marking PG China on the back. The gray one looks a little like Nose Marie

I need to go grab my Pound Puppies! I had an online friend who used to send me alot of her garage sale finds and I have at least six of the big ones now!

I've been wondering for awhile if there were certain dogs made to a point you could do an ID post, or where they like CPK made in so many variants you couldn't track them all. I guess this means you can, right? :)

Hey, I just keep creating these posts because I want to learn more and it seems the fastest way for us to share with each other! I don't know if it's actually feasible for Ghost of the Doll to ever create a page about them, but at least we'll have these posts to reference when we need to. :)

Nose Marie is there for size comparison. Not sure what these little ones were from. A playset?

Post by: zuse on Sunday 09 May 2010, 04:06 pm
No, I'm pretty sure they were sold lose as PVC figurines by Applause maybe? (I sold a Gummi Bears figurine by Applause that was alone in its package).

They were based off the cartoon, so that's what I always figured, anyway.

The little tiny ones? I know the bigger ones were sold individually. The littlest ones look like they're meant to maybe fit in vehicles or something.

Aww I have the brown one!  My boyfriend gave it to me from his childhood.  His name is Rumple Skins I believe.  :333!

Aren't they Newborn Pound Puppies though?

One of the four most treasured toys from my childhood is the large rust colored Rumpleskin pound puppy. I love him so much I ended up with a double to sleep with so Rusty wasn't put in harm's way with my restless sleeping patterns. (Unfortunetly I had to finally stop sleeping with plushies at 25....but only because that's when I got my Min Pin. ;) )

I need to get back into the boxes that I have my PP's in! I know I have six or so big ones and a bunch of the puppies. *whines* I'm redoing my doll room and cutting down some collections so I am seperated from part of my collection. Not a happy Mare! :(

@Em  That's so sweet! The toys that meant the most to me...and got saved from going to charity when I was in that silly "too old for toys" stage...were all ones given to me by special people or from special occasions. Your boyfriend sounds awesome, btw. I'm a plushie over flowers girl myself. ;)
Title: Re: Pound Puppies and Purries - 1980s (Tonka)
Post by: zuse on Tuesday 18 May 2010, 06:09 am
You guys are cute. :)

So, is there any list anywhere of all the Pound Puppies stuff by Tonka? I know it had the cartoon and lots of licensed merchandise so it might be pointless, haha. Also, with all the Hardee's ones flooding the market it's hard to sift through all the eBay lots. :-\
Title: Re: Pound Puppies and Purries - 1980s (Tonka)
Post by: WordFuzion on Tuesday 18 May 2010, 10:30 pm
@Em... my big Pound Puppies were amoung the saved. I picked out the ones that meant the most to me and the rest went to a local charity run by my father's friend's wife that provides toys, clothes, etc. for migrant workers. So at least I know the ones that I did give up got a chance to be really loved.

And now whenever I see something I had that I gave up, I just make a little note. :P I just might add a section like that to my Flickr account. Someday we'll be reunited! Right now I can just do a little rebuying here and there, but I'm working on my first novel and if I get it published I will celebrate with one heck of a buying spree! :P

I had these as a kid in Canada, and I don't know why, but I never see the "cloth" type ones for sale or in photos, just the velour ones, they maybe were only in Canada?  I'll post a few pics of them later today.  The yuppies were the first things we got in the velour material, then after that pretty much all of them were soft.   I'm relatively certain the "cloth" ones were the first ones out, I think 1984.  They were kind of the same material as Cabbage Patch Kids, I think their angle was to have the OOAK thing going on, but as dogs, not kids.

Not sure if I can hotlink so I'll just give a URL to my pound puppy gallery:

http://picasaweb.google.ca/Pranceatron/PoundPuppies#

The first run puppies came with an order form for a brass nametag, there's a picture of it there.  It looked very unofficial and homemade, I remember not being too impressed with it, so I put some letter stickers over it.
Also I have the colour insert from the rumpleskins Puppy I got in there too, with Super Pound Puppy!
The clothing was all sewn by me as a child, these toys were VERY well loved!

My Pound Puppies:

http://s779.photobucket.com/albums/yy76/Mer_Kitty/Pound%20Puppies/

Mer_Kitty.... I have a Pound Puppy I was trying to find more info on because I had never seen one like it before, then I saw him in your picture! He is in the first picture, toward the upper left. He is medium-size, and in a sitting position, as opposed to the standard laying down position. Gray body, blue eyes. Do you know anything about this guy?

thanks!

I will need to dig up my Pound Puppies and Purries.   I think my original Puppy (as well as my sister's) is long gone, but I still have both our Pound Purries, both of our Pound Puppy Furries newborns, my Pound Purry newborn, and I possibly still have my Pound Puppy newborn.

I also found some pictures of me and my sister on the ferry from Kodiak to the mainland, and we have our Pound Puppies with us.   The picture of me it is kind of hard to see, since my puppy was black, and the lighting on the ferry was really bad.  But I will try and post them when I can.

I have quite a few pound puppies and purries, including some vintage. I have several of the small plush animals (including ponies!), and several of the tiny playset-sized plastic ones (my favorites!). I had lots of playsets as a child. I'm not sure if I have them all now. *sigh*

Maybe I should takes some pics.

Amazing job on the new Pound Puppies section! :) I can't imagine how much work it must have been! Those toy lines are rather overwhelming!

I wonder if those unknown PVC came with one of those amusement park/train playsets that seemed to be so big back then?

Here's an old picture I saved where you can see there are a few alternate poses.

Update: Some of those other figures you have posted seem to belong to the "Wind Up Getaway Railroad" playset.

Once upon I time I half pondered organizing the Tonka/Galoob toys.

After browsing a few minutes for pictures I decided that it wasn't a good idea...

But I LOVEEEEEEEEEEE helping. ;D

"Puppy Stuff" - is that off-brand fashion I spy? I'd bet money it's by Totsy! (I think I've seen those before).

Me and my two brothers were given a pound puppy each by my dad's sister when we were kids. I had - and still have - a dark brown one, and I know there was a very light brown one with darker brown spots.
