Puffalump (International) Knock Off Bootleg?
« on: Saturday 02 June 2018, 06:17 pm »
My mother in law has a stuffed animal toy that she got from a fair/carnival in Germany back in 1987.  It's a white dog with yellow arms and legs (and yellow floppy ears).  It's "wearing" blue bloomers, and originally had white pads on the feet.  I believe that the original bow tie was yellow?  But I'm not sure.

Over the years, this stuffed animal has been repaired multiple times.  You'll see in the photos that there are blue checkered foot pads and bowtie, but definitely not original.

I uploaded my images to https://imgur.com/ and then used the "insert image" button above the message editor to paste the link to the imgur image links.

2nd birthday, eh?  Guess it's probably really sentimental to you.  Would love to see a picture of one in better condition if you have one!

Does it have a tag anywhere on it?  I'm curious if it was sold under a particular brand name.

Hi!  No tag I'm afraid. Yes very sentimental, he has travelled all over the world with me.  I chose him out of a thin catalogue from the local shops for my birthday. My great gran bought him me and when his eyes fell off, I was sooo upset. I remember her getting a biro and drawing them back on :). I am having coding issue here - never use forums but Ill give it a go. If it doesn't work let me know!

I want to say this might be a knock off of a toy line called big things made by fisher price in 1994  There is a neon elephant knock off one on ebay right now.
