Ruth Ann is still looking for this pony. She salvaged from a fire one rather fuzzy picture where he is off to the side amongst other stuff animals.
I enhanced the pony with photo editing software, so this is only an attempt to show what he looked like.
Hello Dirty Butter,
I am desperately searching for a childhood stuffed toy. It is a wind-up musical baby toy, and I *think* it is from Gund, but that is only a vague memory.
He was a yellow pony with a white under-belly and pinkish feet/snout. He had black eyes (not of cloth material) and his nostrils were just yarn stitched on. He had a yarn like tail and yarn mane as well. The small silver wind up mechanism was on his side, and it played “It’s a Small Small World”.
I was born in 1983 and always remember having the toy. I would assume then it is from the late 70’s or early 80’s, but it may be earlier (handed down from a relative). It was destroyed in a fire in 1997, and I’ve been looking since the day of the fire. In 2007, that will be 10 years of desperate searching and late nights on the internet.
Ruth Ann says that this giraffe is pretty close, but hers didn’t have the saddle like that and had a white underbelly. It also didn’t have blue eyes; however, that one plays It’s a Small World, so she wonders if they made it differently depending on the year.
Can you help me please? It is more important than words can express that I find this.

Maybe you don’t have one, but you can help us identify the brand or the name of the toy. Any information would be so helpful to her.
Maybe the only help you can give her is to put a post on your blog, linking to this one, so more people will read her request.
