Wendy has decided to stop searching for a Napper in better condition. She writes:
Thank you so much for the help, but I think I’ll just enjoy my own very worn Napper. Seems many others are looking, with high prices, etc. So, I’m no longer looking. Sorry that I have probably missed many, many emails. I’ve been mostly bedridden for a long time now, and very rarely see my email.
I think what you do is a very kind and loving thing. We all need comfort. Sometimes it is easiest accepted by a cherished childhood friend.
The very best to you. Thank you again.
Good luck to you in the future.
Perhaps sometime in the future one will show up for Wendy that is not so expensive.
We DO still have a mailing list of people looking for this dog from their childhood.
I’m looking for a 70’s Napper the talking dog made by Mattel that is still in working condition. He would say phrases such as ”I’m lonely”, ”Ruff, Ruff, Ruff”, and some others.
I still have my Napper, and I will always keep him! I would love to someday have another. My friend when I was little had the lamb version. Napper (mine barely, but still does, work, kinda sorta) says -I feel so lonely!,-my name is napper!, -you’re so good to me!,-I’m so sleepy, -(barking-like noise) followed with rub, rub, rub my tummy! Those are all I can remember right now. I got mine for Christmas in 1980, and I always dried my tears on his ears. He was my favorite toy of my entire childhood.
