We now have a mailing list for the various Animal Grabbers.
I am looking desperately for the Penelope Pig pink plush pig from the Fisher Price Animal Grabber collection during 1980 to about 1984. This toy was just the head of the pig with a handle or pocket behind the snout for the child to grab or hold onto.
It was my most favorite toy and has comforted me all of my 30+ years, and I took it with me everywhere! I would hide it in my book bag, take my Piggy on car trips, and even when I was really small, I flung it into the flamingo pen at the Chicago zoo! Luckily my Aunt went in and hopped the fence to get her. Now my daughter loves it, too, and always wants to snuggle with Piggy, but I worry she is falling apart. We are hoping to find one to last another 30 years in our household.
Toys are so very special and can often comfort more than words. My Piggy has wiped away many tears and shared in just as many adventures. I would love for my daughter to have the same. Please, please if you have any information, I would be forever grateful!
Thank you and happy holidays,
