Searching – 70’s? 80’s? Applause? PRECIOUS MOMENTS? Sad GRAY MOUSE
This is an edited photo of an edited photo!
I lost my best friend, Mousie when I was 14. He was a gray stuffed mouse (maybe by Applause?,) but what made him original was that he had a frown. His eyes looked like the “Precious Moments” type eyes. He was around 14 inches long. He had a “bear type” body meaning arms and legs that extended from his body, and I believe he had a long tail.
The edited photo looks a bit like the real Mousie. His head sat more on his body like he didn’t have much of a neck (if any), and he had a frown with another tiny frown shaped line under his mouth (like a kid when they pucker up their chin). The pink material in his ears was like bed sheet feeling.
His widow’s peak hair was wider and the point of it was closer to his eyes. And his eyes were so much like the Precious moment character’s eyes – I am wondering if he was not from their line? He was the only boy mouse and the only gray mouse in the whole bin. We got him from Gold Circle. He was in a free standing square shaped bin and he was the only one. The girl mice were brown, and they had on a pinafore and a bow and they smiled. He never had clothes. I have tried to find him for sooooo long…
I had a bad childhood, but he was my best friend through it all. Recently, I came across the ONLY photo I have of him, and I started crying. I haven’t seen him for 20 years. It may seem silly since I am 34, but it tugged on my heart to see the glimpse shot I have of him. I have tried to recreate an image of him from this photo (for my hubby and bff – to keep an eye out at garage sales).
I would love it if someone had him.

Maybe is from the Applause Giordano line that makes Sad Sam. I had a white plush seal once with sad eyes made by Applause Giordano so there are other animals other than the dogs. Good luck with your search! -Tonya
worth a look
Ebay item numbers
Let us know if any familiar, possible same brands? Was your mouse all gray except the pink ears?
I’ve noticed the cinderella mice have tear drop eyes. Just a thought.
Is the hair regular or matted type? I saw a pair of Precious Moments light brown bear not too long ago. The girl is wearing pinafore and the boy… no clothes. They have matted hair type with green sad eyes. Are your mouse’s eyes green too?
Yes!! His hair was the more matted type and I’m pretty sure his eyes were mainly black with white at the bottom…however I don’t recall if there may have been a tiny bit of color…? Today is my birthday – that would be so incredible if I found him 🙂
Hi Tami! Unfortunately, none of the ebay items are him. He was entirely gray, except for him pink ears. I’m certain he wasn’t a Disney character…I wish for the life of me I could remember his tag and what the brand was. I have a picture of his face but don’t know how to post it on here…?
I’m not sure if I had this same mouse that I am searching for as well, though my mouse had a music box inside and played a unique song that I have never heard since. I was born in 72 and had this as long as I can remember. If anyone has come across this mouse as well that would be great!
FOUND NEAR THE END OF THE POST
No this mouse definitely did not have a music box inside. I would have surely remembered that. Sorry but I will keep an eye out for you as well. Thanks ~ Aimee

I’m not positive, but I wonder if he might indeed have been an Applause mouse. This bear looks to have the same eyes:
