Fluffy Surprise (Vivid Imaginations)
« on: Wednesday 12 May 2010, 09:59 pm »
This is, atm, the toy that I'm really into collecting.
 But they're prooving to be almost totally nonexistant  :-X
I've managed to find a pink mouse on ebay, and a pink cat and another pink mouse from someone on the MLP arena.
 I also had a purple dog as a child. So I know there's definately at least three  kinds.I've also found a pale pink dog backpack on ebay (it's currently for sale- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vivid-Imaginations-FLUFFY-SURPRISE-BACKPACK-1990s-/370378018449?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Soft_Toys_Bears&hash=item563c400e91) however I'd rather concentrate on the models.

Buuut I could do with some sleuthing help. Does anyone have any reference pics or any FS that they own themselves, that are kinds I haven't listed? I'd like to know what other types there are so I can extend my ebay searching!

And of course, if anyone has any for sale, please PM me? ;D

My sister had one. I'm the one that ID'd them for this site. I've seen a yellow one with babies on Ebay and my sister has purple dog one ( I think - she's just moved back in and packed her old stuff away so there's not way for me to check). I think they came as singles and also also as a mum with babies. I think attached to a card (I don't think they were under a plastic bubble or anything). Made by vivid imaginations - when you ebay search are you doing a 'vivid imaginations' search in the description? That's probably the only way you'll find them - also posting a wanted ad with a photo on the mlparena/mlptp?

^ yeah, mine came with babies. they're just so small i figured the larger ones would be easier to look for.
 i try vivid imaginations, fluffy surprise, also fluffy (dog, cat, mouse, purple, pink) anything else i can think of, haha. it takes a while >.<
 and they're on my wishlist, just not had many replies in general to it.
i did actually end up searching the arena for them, which is how i bought the two i have now. someone posted about them two years ago, and luckily she still had them when I PM'ed her :)

I saw a few of these, all yellow, at a boot sale a couple of weeks ago. I vaguely recognised them but didn't know the name. I went back later to have another look, but they'd already sold - 20 pence each!

I thought I'd contribute some... Hi btw, this is my first post to this Forum. Hope I'm not doing anything wrong now :P and sorry for bumping an old thread. I justfind these toys interesting :)

Anyways, this is a FluffySurprise I got as a kid. Purple squirrel, badly faded fluff


I recently got a couple more FS's, and can get pictures of them when they're at home (they're still at my parents' house). There's a white dog, like Zuse posted and a small purple thing (don't remember but I think it's a dog) and I think I have a pink cat, too.

I love these, a shame they're so hard to find! I know there are yellow ones as well. a friend I had as a kid used to have a yellow either mouse or dog (can't remember) and I'm almost certain I've seen green and orange ones, too.

I've never seen these before.  It's intersting that they have feathers on them!  I bet they got worn out easy.  Maybe that's why they are hard to find?

I wouldn't be surprised if these get mixed in with lots for other toys. Perhaps they get mistaken for My Little Pony friends or Barbie pets by clueless sellers.

Hi, I have some for sale on Ebay, if anyone is interested. Only just found this thread, or I would have put photo's on here for you :(

I think they are lovely little things, but I am more into Glo Worms and Ponies x x

My other ones are finally home with me!

Purple cat. The fluff on the squirrel I posted before had this colour when I got her.



White Bunny (dog?)


and a pink/purple little mini dog.
