I’m looking for a scruffy medium-sized 80’s? vibrant blue stuffed rat with a thin, long tail and black eyes and 2 blue floppy ears. (I can’t remember if it had a mouth or a nose.) I don’t even know the make of the stuffed toy, so I realize this is a difficult task, but it’s worth a try!
This is a long shot, especially since I live in England.
When we lived in Dubai, my brother used to have this rat toy when he was little. He affectionately nicknamed him Beaver, as he thought it was a beaver at the time (although as he grew older he realized it was actually a rat.) My dad threw him away when my brother was 12, much to his dismay. My brother’s now almost 30, and I still feel a piece of him is missing every time he talks of that beaver/rat!
Sadly, I have no photos, but every Christmas I do a Google search just to try and find the blue rat. It would actually be the best present ever if I could reunite my brother with his stuffed toy. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Additional information from eBay links that may help in finding it:
Material: Similar to Cheery Cheeks Mopsy Blue Mouse 12″ by Mary Meyer but much less soft&smooth,more matted together like blue circles(hope that makes sense?)Very squishable though:) He was very plain,no additional patterns or markings except the hard black beady eyes and I’m beginning to remember a soft pointy snout/nose.
Body Shape: Very much like the NWT Gund Murry Knit Blue Mouse 8″ Stuffed Toy Beanbag(not as small),just a big soft oval for the body.
Limb Shape: Much like the above Gund Murry mouse,they poked out of his body.Except the rat’s shape limbs were much more circular and round not thin and pointy like the Gund Murry Mouse.Actually also a bit like VINTAGE Brechner Toy 8″ BLUE & GRAY MOUSE BEAR Plush K2 but not as puffy-just stuck out from the body.
Ear Shape: Very flimsy/floppy cloth-like blue triangular ears(they were hanging by a thread at one point!)
Color: Exactly like this 8″ Avon Bright Blue Mouse Pink Ears 2000 on Chest Stuffed Animal Plush.His eyes were like this Avon one as well.
