Seahorse and Starfish Bath Toy ID help!
« on: Wednesday 05 September 2012, 12:10 am »
Hi!

I used to have these bath toys when I was a kid and I really loved them.  Now i wish I had them for my daughter to play with.  I've been looking on ebay and stuff but they seem hard to find and ID.

They were made in the 1980's

The seahorse was green and squishy about 4 inches tall

The starfish was yellow and had a face on it

They probably came together in a set and maybe with other animals.

Any help with this would be awesome!  Also, if you have them and want to sell or trade them to me that let me know!

Thanks!

That's not quite it, but close!  The starfish was defiantly all yellow with raised bumps like that one, but the face was more detailed with airbrushed cheeks... maybe they were made by fisher price though... hmmmmm

Wait.. did the seahorse have a round spot in the back where a guy could ride? Something about the size of Fisher Price little people?

Around 1999 I had this shampoo that came in a plastic tube-type bottle.  Floating in the clear shampoo was a little purple sea horse.  When the shampoo was gone, you cut the end of the tube and voila! New bath toy.  Was it anything like that?

Hi guys!  No, it wasn't either one of those, but the green seahorse is cute!  I'm thinking of trying to draw a picture if  have time...

They were both just kind of regular bath toys that you could squish and maybe the could squeak.  But they were detailed and well made.  I really appreciate the help! (:
