I'm looking for pictures of molded super-heroes and villains from the late 1960's. They included Superman, Batman, Robin, Joker, and Penguin.

DOLL - AMPUTEE
This may seem like an odd question, but in a few postings on various newsgroups, the idea of amputee dolls was mentioned. I know there are such things as a Cabbage Patch doll with crutches and leg braces, and a Barbie doll in a wheelchair (which I understand is enormously popular), but I wonder: if someone marketed an amputee fashion doll, i.e., with a prosthetic hook on one arm. Would enough therapists and doctors be interested in them to justify a production run? It would be somewhat helpful to an amputee child's self-image to have a doll that child's self- image to have a doll that is not meant to look freakish, but very much the reverse. Am I on to something here? Please let me know.
DOLL - AMPUTEE - RESPONSE - DR. TOY

Shame on me!

My favorite toy was a Jumpsy Doll. She could jump rope and not fall. I got her around 1971-1973. The most horrible thing happened to her; she was burned up in a fire.

I am a senior at Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange New Jersey. Our school has become involved with the Tomorrow's Children's Fund, a program that helps kids plagued with terminal cancer. Our school is involved in every activity that they sponsor. Every December they hold a breakfast with Santa. For the last three years our school has coordinated this event. Food is provided and the kids are kept occupied with games that students help coordinate. Some of our students dress up as elves to entertain the children. The kids get a picture with Santa, but they have never received presents. This year we thought it would be a good idea to hand out small gifts to the children from Santa. We want to hand out toys to these kids, because most of them are dying of cancer, and we don't want them to remember Santa just giving them a candy cane. I want to ask you if you know of any toy companies that are willing to help our cause. I am not asking for free toys; if we need to raise money it would be no problem. What I need are companies that will give us a discount on toys to give to these kids. This is a legitimate cause that will not benefit our school in any way. Everything will go to the Tomorrow's Children's Fund. If you have any information, please e-mail. If you want to get in touch with my school, I will provide you with an address. Thank you for your time and patience in this matter. I hope to hear from you soon.

Could you tell me if some of the larger companies like Fisher-Price or Playskool ever donate toys to organization such as The Family Tree? If they do, could you please give me a suggestion on how to accomplish this goal? Thank you.

The secretary of sheriffs reserves thanks you.
Downfall was a game for two that I played as a child in the early 1970's. It was made of plastic, and the goal was to move your plastic pieces from the top of the playing surface to the bottom, before the opponent on the backside of the game could do it. Is it made any more? Where could I get a used one? Thanks.

EGG INCUBATOR - RESPONSE
The Delta Education catalog has an 8 3/4" diameter incubator for $25.95. It looks like it would hold 3-4 eggs. The item number is 53-090-0492. Ask where to get fertile eggs when you call! Here's the phone 800-442-5444.
I'm looking for a toy that was made about in the mid 1990's. It was an elephant that when turned on would blow air out his trunk, sending paper butterflies into the air. I don't know the name of the toy, or if it is still available. I would love to buy it for my children. Thanks.
I would like information about a toy. It's a Warner Bros. Elmer Fudd manufactured by Centaur. It also says Merrie Melodies. The top of the package says: Bugs Bunny and Pals Perform! It says on the back Centaur Productions, Burbank, CA. Thank you.

Where can I find an exercise ball, similar to ones used in Physical Education classes? They are four or five feet in diameter with a cover that laces up on the outside. Abe.
EYEWITNESS - Board Game
Does anyone remember this board game besides me? If anyone knows where I can buy a copy at a reasonable price, please let me know! Same with Mystery Date. I just want to play it, not stick it up on a shelf as a collectible!
EYEWITNESS - Board Game - RESPONSE
I did a search on www.ebay.com . This is an auction site that frequently has old toys and/or games. I searched, but there was not a copy of the Eyewitness board game listed. You may want to check the site every week to see if one gets listed. They do have several Mystery Date games listed, but the lowest price one sold for last month was $45. Stan.
I was just wondering if you could tell me what the upcoming toy fads may be. I don't want to miss out on these things like I did with Tamagotchi and Beanie Babies, etc. I would appreciate it if you reply as soon as possible. Thank you for your time.
FATHER and SON TOY
I know a father who is adopting a three-year old boy. I would like to buy them something they can do together: a game, sporting toy, etc. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Laura.
FEMALE FIGURINE - FORMAL ATTIRE
I am looking for the female companion to a male figure wearing a tuxedo which was made by Kenner in 1994. He is about five and a half inches tall. Under the copyright date it says "advance" and also made in China. Or, if you know where to find a similar pair, that would work just as well. Thanks, Suzy.
FIGURINES - BOUNCING HEADS
What is the name of the figurines that have a spring for the neck, such that the head bounces about? I have seen "baseball players" on ESPN baseball commercials. Thanks.
I am trying to find Finger Blasters. The toy is a foam tube about one inch in diameter and about six inches in length, with fins on the rear. At the tip is attached a rubber band that you hold. In the rear, the tube has a hole to insert your finger into. You pull the "blaster and rubber band" tight, then let go. The last time I saw them was at a summer camp in 1997. I have tried the major toy stores, and they have no clue.
I don't remember where, but I know I've seen toy fish! I believe they work on magnetics; the fish maintain buoyancy somehow, too. But you put them in an aquarium and you have maintenance-free fish! Any ideas where I might find them? Thanks for your time, Henry.
FISH - RESPONSE
There are similar fish in the Oriental Trading Company catalog. They sell some in an aquarium. There are also some attached with a string to a clear plastic bubble When you put those in a fishbowl with water, it appears they are swimming. Catalogs can be requested at 1-800-228-2269.
FLYING TOY - THREE BLADED HELICOPTER
Where can I buy a flying toy like this: a balloon is blown up, attached to a simple three bladed helicopter; when released, it flies into the air, propelled by the air from the balloon rushing over the three blades. It also whistles as it rises.
FOOTBALL - BLACK BOMB - CAP TOYS
Where can I find a Cap Toy's Black Bomb? It resembles a Nerf football, and has a plastic ring around the center. I bought one in 1997 and have been unable to find a replacement. Thank you, Vince.
FORKLIFT RIDING TOY
I received a catalog in the mail with a picture on the cover of a child sitting on a large forklift riding toy which had a hand powered crank to move the fork part up and down. It looked like it was made of the same type of plastic as a Little Tykes or Step 2 toy. I'm hoping someone knows where to order this. It is the only gift my five year old wants, and I lost the catalog.
FORKLIFT RIDING TOY - FOLLOW UP
Thank you! Through Toys To Grow On I was able to find the forklift. My son will be so thrilled to receive it!
FORMULATOR BY SNAPTECH
I am trying to locate a toy called Formulator made by SnapTech. The toy also had the Discovery Channel logo on it and when they were called they provided a phone number that was no longer in service. If you could give me any information on how to reach this company it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Lisa.
Hi, do you know of anywhere I could get a Fraggle toy? Thanks. Mike.
