We have a Mailing List of people looking for the various Jumbo Love animals. We have the pink elephant for sale in our store right now.
I’m searching for a Jumbo Love Purple hippo manufactured by Commonwealth Toys. I would describe him as looking like the Puffalumps, only bigger – I’m guessing at 24″. He is made of the same material, but with thicker filling. He has very long arms and legs with horizontal stitching (creating sectioned limbs) every inch or so and ending in a bulbous section which would be a hand or foot. The eyes are patches sewn on and there is another patch saying “Jumbo Love”.
I gave this to my Granddaughter years ago, and she slept with it always. I had to repair it so many times it no longer had a neck and has lost a lot of its plump. She is now married and has a special little boy and would love to have one for him. Hers has disappeared, and we have not been able to find it.
