Hello, Six of my soft toys need ID'ing please
« on: Sunday 24 February 2013, 03:49 pm »
Hi, there doesn't seem to be an intro board here so I'll say hello here :).
I'm sorting out my loft (a huge job, trust me) and part of that is sorting out all my soft toys (there WAS 19 large bin bags full, there are now 11 smaller recycling bags full) and ID'ing them all -  this site has been exceptionally useful on this front (Little Rubber Guys has been brilliant for ID'ing my figures and minifigures) but the following six remain unknown - does anyone know who they are please?



Now i didn't check their tags (the ones that still have them) because I foolishly didn't think it would be so hard to ID them but here's what I can tell you:

1. IDENTIFIED - Fisher Price's Big Things - Hippo
2. IDENTIFIED - Playskool's Busy Elephant
3. IDENTIFIED - Tara Corp's Kudlee Uglees  
4. IDENTIFIED - Mathbox's Grumples (aka Razzcals)
5. This is the one that's really bugging me, I had two of these, they look like gangly proto-Thimbles (long before that series though) and came in the same kind of boxes as Care Bears and Were Bears with their legs and arms hanging out, there was about six and they're from the mid-90's i think.
6. it's a dog catching mit with a Velcro mouth (tennis ball shown is not the ball that came with it) I can't remember ever not having it so I'm pretty useless on this one. It's made of a shiny material like 1 and 5's belly.

Also, I wonder if anyone here can give me more information on Wet Wet Pets please:



I have these two larger sized ones (turtle and hippo) and a smaller sized ray and bought them from Centre Parks in the the late '90's but can't seem to find any online presence for them.

Thanks for your time and any help you can give

The first one is called a Giganitcmal? Or however its spelled. And the two monsters in picture three are called Kuddlee Uglees.

Hi The first thing that comes to mind with me with your unknown hippo plush is a toy line I want to say by fisher price called "big things" or some thing like that I remember commercials for them some time in the 1990's I am not positive of this although.

It's a shame you weren't positive because you were absolutely right - thanks a bunch :)

Number 5 is a Silly Willy from Hasbro.

Oh, BTW, I also looked up Wet Wet Pets on ebay; I discovered that their maker's name was Malibu Fun, and that the smaller ones were called Wee Wet pets. I also found a couple more from the toy line:
