I once had a nightmare about such a toy as these. What was happening in the late 50's and early 60's to make these strangely sculpted rubber animals so popular? Who was the woman to form a collection of over 50, and what compelled our friend to buy the lot? Is it the strangely human eyes in the animal face that make them so disturbing? Or the squeeky noises that paint a picture of a dogs gnawing and drooling defacement? Somehow these play things are still extremely compelling, immediately taking your mind to what childhood from that era might have been like. Look for a full display, coming soon to Aunties and Uncles.
