These may be older than 1980's. Thank you for any help.





These figures are wooden and hollow.

The ones on the bottom look like kokeshi dolls to me, which are Japanese wooden dolls with cylindrical bodies and rounded heads. It's possible that they could have been from a toy series, but they may also be Japanese souvenirs.

Calling all teddy experts! Please help me find my Cuddle Bear!

The faces on the peg dolls look like Playskool, but all the ones I could find on google had larger bodies. They also remind me of the old lego people. Lego used to make wooden toys before they switched to plastic bricks.

The plastic figures could be from Matchbox. They used to have a blind box thing with some of their cars. Inside the packaging was a hidden toy and the one I used to have looked similar in colour and style.
