Searching – 70s Sears WILD MULTI-COLOR FLOWER GIRAFFE DONKEY?

Donald is still looking for this animal.

Hi…I am trying to locate any information possible about an old stuffed animal my sister used to have. She thinks it was a giraffe. Dollcraft? Jeebee? They are two possibilities, but wish I knew for sure.

70's Sears? Multi-Colored Flower Giraffe? Donkey?It would have been bought in approximately 1970-72. We live in Nova Scotia, but the toy was definitely pictured in an old Sears catalog around the same time…of that I am sure. I’m just not sure if it had been listed as an item for sale or part of a background display for something else.

My sister thinks it was a giraffe, and it could very well be…although with the flowers and funky colors I’m not sure..might be a donkey? If memory serves it was filled with Styrofoam balls, but could have been straw? It was around 24 inches long. It was multicolored, with kind of psychedelic flower pattern, a big smiling red mouth, and half moon slits in the eyes. It had a soft fuzzy coat.

I would love to know more about it, and, if I can, locate one to buy. I’ve been searching for any trace for two years with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Donald

    This is not exact. It is smaller and a different floral pattern but came from the japan in the 1970 according to the description. Might be worth looking for information.

    Well say, if I may ask, please, what kind of ears did he have, did he have a mane, and did he have any horns on his head?
