We received an email request today from Deb, looking for a gray stuffed cat with a white tummy, called Momma Cat. She has Velcro on her paws to hold a kitten. Deb thought it might be a RUSS stuffed animal.
She’s emailed me again with more details:
This toy belonged to my daughter and was lost. I’ve been looking for one ever since and now that we have the internet it seems that someday I may find one.
This cat was called “momma cat” by the manufacter but I don’t know who they were. I don’t know if ‘momma cat” was actually written on the toy. It was approx. 15-18″, has a flat bottom for sitting, Light gray color with a white abdomen and the velcro squares on the “hands”. It has large white feet.
If you know where she could get one of these, or maybe you have one that you could send me a picture of, I’m sure she’d appreciate your help. It will be much easier for us to find it for her if we have the picture and tag information, and I’ll add it to this post, too.
Can you help Deb out? With this complete a description, maybe somebody will recognize this cat and be able to help her out. I’m sure she would appreciate it. Please Contact us, including #010406D in the subject, .
We couldn’t help Susan, but we were able to help John find this dog. He writes:
Hi Rosemary, Clyde arrived safely and in time for my brother’s 45th Birthday Saturday! Thank you for the Happy Conclusion of my 15 year Quest!

SHELLIE FOUND THE PINK LADYBUG ON AUCTION ON EBAY! But that’s not the end of the story!
We received this email today, August 15th.
My husband and I are looking for the same ladybug (we decided not to bid on the one on eBay, because we felt so bad for Shellie’s daughter), and we’re wondering if you had been contacted by anyone else who may have one of these hard-to-come-by little guys?
I wish we did have another one, but no such luck. Now we’ve just GOT TO FIND ANOTHER LADYBUG for this unselfish couple!!
Thanks to our dear readers, I was able to email Christie today with the link to one of these ladybugs on eBay. Christie had already found one, so if anyone else needs this hard to find lovey, now is the time to get it as a backup or a replacement.

My daughter lost her favorite stuffed toy. It was a pink ladybug wind up. I think it played “Twinkle
Twinkle Little Star.” It was made by Carter’s, and I purchased it from Target in 2003.
I am looking for a beanie owl to replace a lost one.
I think it was manufactured by DanDee. He had a little tuft of cream colored hair on the top of his head, a cream or tan belly, a brown body and wings, and brown or black feet. His eyes were brown, I think with gold flecks, not just solid black toy eyes. I have looked at all the Audubon birds and TY beanie birds, and he is not in their groups.
Do you have anything like that, or any ideas where to look? He was a gift, and may have come from a thrift store. I don’t remember how long we had him, but he would be at least 2 years old, I think, and could be older.
Thank you, Barbara

Searching for a toy – Originally posted 06/17/2006
Well, in trying to help someone locate information about their own childhood doll, I ran across some pictures of just what I’ve been looking for on the Antique Dolls Collectors Online Advisors, a research site I can definitely recommend to anyone trying to locate a vintage or collectible doll.
I remember them as being so ugly they were cute, and boy, was I right!!
I’ve since searched the Internet and can’t find any for sale anywhere, but I’ll certainly be on the lookout, now that I know that Horsman made them in 1949, and most importantly, their NAME, Squalling Babies!!
Does anyone remember these dolls? Horsman made a reproduction of them in 1980, so some of you “young whippersnappers” may remember those. If anyone runs across the original doll for sale, I sure would appreciate a heads up!

I have recently decided that my dolls were NOT made by Horsman, but by Lastic Plastic Fleischaker Co. in 1948.
