Thanks to one of our Fabulous Finders, we now know this is a GUND baboon. But Allison’s email address is no longer responsive, so we have discontinued this search.
I lost my favorite toy stuffed baboon/monkey many years ago.
It was a white furry one. Not quite a baboon, but closer to baboon than a regular monkey. It had a white shaggy fur body with a little cap of tan hair on its head.
It had a long projecting orange rubbery face, and orange rubbery feet and hands. She came wearing a little red flower sprigged apron. If you took her apron off, she didn’t look like a girl, actually now that I think of it.
My grandma gave it to me in probably in 1979 or 1980.
You could make it pick its nose or stick it’s thumb in its mouth. It had a pretty ugly grimace on its face, and its eyes were beady blue and hard plastic.
I left it at a friends house and was never able to get it back, and would LOVE to be able to find another one!!!
Please help, as it’s oddly very important to me.
