We have a mailing list of people looking for this strange Bah Koo creature.
I had many favorite toys as a child, but my brother had only a select few. The one we remember most of all was “Bah Koo,” a hybrid of a few different animals. Based on an Asian folk tale, Bah Koo chases away bad dreams. I remember my brother sleeping with him every night and carrying him around, upside down, by his tail.
Unfortunately, when my brother went into the Navy, he cleaned his room rather hastily, and we’re afraid he may have inadvertently disposed of poor Bah Koo, or as he liked to call him, “Kooie.”
He was originally sold in 1987, as a box set with the book “Bah Koo- Chaser of Bad Dreams: A Bedtime Story,” written by Robert Rhodes and illustrated by Gary Patterson.
It’s not impossible to find the book these days, but after countless months of searching, I have yet to find the plush toy.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance,
I copied this from Amazon, where they are selling the book:
From Publishers Weekly
Based on a creature from Japanese mythology that destroys the bad dreams of children, Bah Koo has the snout of an elephant, the tail of a lion and the ears of a cow.
