We were able to help Erin find her Grabber, but we still have a mailing list for the various Animal Grabbers.
I’m looking for a 1979-1986 Fisher Price yellow foam-filled terry cloth Dexter dog head Animal Grabber that rattles when shaken. The dog head is shaped a bit like a ball with a loop through the middle for baby to hold it. The dog has a long snout that is sewn to his bottom lip forming a loop. The dog has long rounded yellow terry-cloth ears with orange and white cotton checkerboard inner ears, and sleepy stitched eyes. It’s designed for children ages birth to 2 years old.
This is a toy that I was given as an infant. I slept with it until I was in middle school and even took it to college with me. I still have my Dexter Dog, but 30 year later, as you can imagine, it is very poor condition. I would love to be able to give Dexter Dog to my 5 month old daughter in the hopes that it would bring her as much comfort as it has me over the years.
If you can help Erin find this 80’s Fisher Price Yellow Terry Dexter Dog #438 Head Easy Hold Animal Grabber, THIS SITE IS NO LONGER ACTIVELY MANAGED. Please use Our FREE FACEBOOK GROUP, including the POST CODE #16184,
