Help identifying unknown fuzzy toy**had to do URL links

I'm not sure if the photo links worked, I can't get the photos to show in the post
I've been trying to figure out what this toy is for a few years. It was mine as a child and I finally found it in my attic. It used to have a small whistle and when you blew the whistle it would repeat the same whistling. The label is extremely worn, but I can make out that it says animal fair. Any help would be appreciated.

I had to do some trademark digging to find this one, and I actually found an eBay listing with some nice pictures. Score!



This toy was called Finder's Beepers and it was produced by Animal Fair Inc. around 1987 it seems. It looks like this toy was perfect for some hide & seek as you could get someone to hide it and look for it by whistling into the little piece and waiting to hear its beeps. This is a very awesome toy. Hope this helps!

How did you do trade mark research? I tried to google Animal fair, but I only found Chubbles and Chiggles. I was about 2 when I received it, and I use to call it a beeper finder, I was googling that name and of course that wasn't coming up, so I thought I had invented that.

I was so excited I bought the one on ebay!

Awesome! So glad you bought the other one too. It's going to be great for your collection. I'm glad I could help.

For searching trademarks, I usually just type in the company name and trademark which makes different sites come up. For this one "Animal Fair Inc. trademark" worked very well.
