The pig came. He had to swim all the way from England! I’m so excited to be reunited. Thank you so much for your help finding me find it; I did not even think I remembered the name of the toy and was so happy to find your website and have a place to post about it.
I am looking for a Plush Pig I had about 17 years ago. Its belly was a candy dispenser, so you could store jelly beans (or cheerios like my health conscious parents made me) in the pig’s tummy. The stomach rolled up and down in order to dispense the candy. I called mine “Piggy Belly”, but I must have made it up because I can’t find anything about it on the internet.
I gave most of my stuffed animals away after my father died six years ago and my mom moved. I really regret giving some of them away and am trying to track down my favorites.
I don’t have any pictures of my old toy, but it was the same concept as the pig in the photo. The stomach was made of clear plastic, just like the picture. It was made of two half circles that snapped together (You took it apart to load the candy.) In order to get the candy out you could roll (spin) the stomach down to expose an opening where the candy could pour out of. The opening would be at 12 o’clock (at the top of the pig’s belly) when left alone.
Hope that makes sense!
