Darling Dalmatians and Darling Animal Friends - Trendmasters (1993)
« on: Sunday 24 October 2010, 06:59 pm »
Thanks to Trademarkia I think that I've finally pinned these Trendmasters toys down.

(Why is it so hard to find info on Trendmasters toys?!?)

I think these were made around 1993 because of Littlest Pet Shop, probably. They also remind me a bit of the Hasbro My Little Puppy/Kitty Li'l Litters. And the Jasman animal figure set from Toys 'R' Us.

Also, the Dalmatians were probably specifically chosen because they were very popular then due to the rerelease of 101 Dalmatians in theaters in 1991 and Disney "opening the vault" and putting the film on VHS in 1992.

Darling Dalmations
(Including Star Dalmatian, Chance Dalmatian, Heart Dalmatian)



There were also:
Darling Kitties
Darling Ponies
Darling Zoo Troop
Darling Sea Friends

I don't know if they were all sold as "Families" or if you could buy animals separately? (Most of the blankets I've seen say "Family" on them).

I don't know what other accessories were included as I've never seen a MOC set!

Here's a post about the sets:

More information (collected from the MLP Arena):

Quote from: BlackCurtains (I'm reposting this for you, hehe!

[First Post]

I have the Zoo Family Elephants!

They have a purple cage and purple pink blanket and yellow straw (which I still have remarkably).

Did you know they make noise? They have sensors on the bottom of the cage that when you touch your fingers to they make the sound of the animal that belongs to it. Mine make elephant sounds, of course

Mine came with the mommy elephant and one baby. It only ever had one baby. I think I know exactly where it is too, I can take pictures for you if you like

[Second Post]







They're a little dirty from being stored with other toys (transfer marks, yikes!). Their spots are peanut shaped, which I always thought was funny And yes, the straw is absolutely 100% original!

The bad news? The last time I had it out, it still made noise. When I just tried again it worked right for a few seconds and then it started freaking the heck out! The batteries are dead now. Or deadish, as the thing started making a screaming sound, lol.

I was finally able to get the batteries out though. No damage done to the wires or anything so I assume with new batteries it would work just fine still.

Also:
Quote from: timpertie

I had two sets of these - one was the lion set with a father lion and baby. The other was my favourite set - a mother hyena and baby: with multi-coloured spots! Sadly I don't have them any more though.

I got some of these from a member on the MLPTP. I love them!













The hyenas are my favorites, but I love the baby tiger, too.

That's so cute! Thanks for uploading it. I've never seen one of the dalmatians before.

Wow! So cute! A "Basket Baby."

Was that one you've held on to over the years or did you pick it up recently? :)

Are there more from the set pictured on the back?
