I have that whale! It was (if you can believe this) an accoutrement on a frozen mixed drink from some now defunct chain restaurant about 16 (gasp!! ack!!) years ago. My friends had a friend that worked there and served us (underage. . . not that I would do that) so we'd get the biggest, frilliest, silliest drinks imaginable. Now it's one of M's favorite bath time toys.
Wow, that dolphin made me laugh out loud.
I love old toys too. I bought some old dolls that reminded me of when I was young and put them on my windowsill. I've got to find a Cupie Doll next. I used to get one at the fair every year.
I also have that whale! And a shark that is very similar. I too love toys like this...so silly!
Everything about this post makes me laugh; the toys, the fact that you call a toy blowhole, the fact that the killer whale or whatever that is looks like it's leering. Perfection. ;)
Renee- seriously?! That's awesome. Now if only I had the drink to go with the whale. Another snow day today- ugh.Me too, Cheryl!Belle- good luck finding a Kewpie- they're so cute!The Stapelia Company- leering is the perfect word for it. :) Perhaps it uses it's ugly mug to kill prey? Ha!
I saw you on "where we blog from" over on Jane's blog, ill seen, ill said. A lovely space you have created! How you manage to keep so tidy with two little ones is more than I can fathom.
When I was probably 4 years old, my parents went fishing for the day. Apparently my mom thought she had a "bite" and when she reeled her line in, there was a blue rubber shark, hooked through a fin, on her hook. This was in Wisconsin, mind you. Well anyway, after everyone had a good laugh about her snagging a rubber shark in a lake in Wisconsin, they cleaned it up and gave it to me. It ended up being one of my favorite toys growing up. True story.Jadeyhs.
