    Okay, I need this dog from GUND
    [​IMG]

    I cannot find it anywhere. HALP?

    ETA, and it's not Spunky. I saw him in a store years ago, and couldn't afford him. Seeing him again has renewed my desire to own one. :p

    It was! We had a couple of those big cable spools too.

    And a pool. I'd stay in until my lips were blue, lol.

    I liked My little ponies, a lot. I don't have them any more though. I liked Barbies too but don't still have them. I have stuffed animals that I had as a child since most of them were from my grandmother and I just couldn't get rid of them since she passed away.

    Yes! But it's out of stock :(

    I think he's been discontinued or something. I searched blue gund dog, but I was only seeing Spunky. :p

    I'm finding a lot of listings -- but they're all out of stock. Plenty of small and medium. Snoodle isn't listed on the Gund site so you're probably right about them being discontinued.

    Yeah. I guess the only way is to keep an eye on ebay. In the meantime, I'm going to order a medium one lol :D

    I'm so happy over a stuffed animal it's ridiculous lol.

    And I used to LOVE Lincoln logs, legos, marbles (had a HUGE collection at one point) and all sorts of stuffed German Shepherds. :p I only have one left, but he lives in my office, lol

    One might turn up on Etsy, or one of the moms here who might find one for you on a mommy group.

    lol, I still have some of mine, and my favorite?
    Wait for it... Wait for it...

    Yes, he's missing some stickers, and his gun :(. But I still have mine! My brothers "killed" all of theirs.

    Love my G2 Grimlock!

    LOVE these :D! ...ours are molding in the basement :(, should probably "rescue" them someday.

    Holy cow :yikes:, I had one of those! I only remember because it got stashed in the attic, somehow, except my parents always called it a "Huffalump"? Huh.

    Anyhow, anyone else remember "Maple town"? Oh, my, gosh, my family went CRAZY one Christmas, lol! So we ended up with a ton of the sets, but that was some of the most childhood fun we ever had.

    The Lincoln Logs reminded me I had a set of Computer Blocks. I've still got them. The longest block represented 10, the smallest 1, and you could use them to get a visual grasp of number relationships, adding and subtracting . . . I've thought about mounting them in a shadowbox frame as art.

    Also still have these :)

    I guess those are the San Francisco versions of Lincoln Logs, lol.

    EDIT: How weird! That's not the photo it's supposed to be, but I DO have one of those -- I found it at a flea market!

    EDIT: Trying for the Deelie Bobbers again
