Aladar has made it across the pond (UK Ebay) and is now home to stay!!! Thank you and Tami so much for all your help!!! As I’ve said before, your site is amazing and brightens the lives of children everywhere! God Bless You!
[pinit] Hello, my friend. I have been following your blog since 2007, and I think it is simply wonderful what you do to help these children and their families! I was wondering if maybe you could help me.
When I was about eight years old, I had a stuffed Iguanodon (dinosaur) named Aladar. He was a character from a Disney movie from around that time which was simply titled “Dinosaur.” About the plush – he is about 23 inches long, from head to tail, sort of a dark blue-green color, with a tan/khaki tummy. He was stuffed, but had beans in his tummy, too. He had a row of spines that stretched from his head all the way down to his tail. While the rest of the body was plush, he had a vinyl/plastic head. And here is what I remember most fondly- he had a kind smile and gentle eyes that always soothed me as a child when I was anxious or upset. I loved having my own dinosaur friend 🙂
Unfortunately, when I was about twelve, I went looking for him, and I couldn’t find him anywhere. It was as if he’d vanished. I’ve been looking for him for five or six years now, and I really hope you can help me. I’ll be able to pay it forward, too, because I always go to flea markets and clearance stores where lovable plush friends are likely to be sold!!! In fact, I’m different from most teens in that I prefer those places to shopping malls ! 🙂 I’ll do what I can to help you wonderful, generous folks find new lovies for grieving children!
Here’s some other important info – Aladar was a Star Bean – a special toy line from Mattel that is no longer produced, to the best of my knowledge. Star Beans came with special swing tags in plastic holders that had “fun facts” about the plush character.
Thank you soooooo much, and I wish you and your Fabulous finders the best of luck! I’ll be looking, too!
