  • Autograph Dog

    Autograph Dog

    The Autograph Dog has been around a long time. In the Mary Meyer 1975 catalog it’s on the back cover shown in Yellow with White ears and White underbody.  Each toy had an inexpensive ballpoint pen attached to a loop on the top of its back. The idea being that your friends would autograph your dog and you would keep it as a souvenir of a special event, such as high school graduation or the spring prom.

    This Bunny was first created in the early 1950’s. It was made in Pink, Blue and Yellow with White plush ear linings of Rayon plush made by Baxter, Kelly & Faust in the Philadelphia, Pa mill. This was a very popular design, because it was our least expensive bunny and retails for $1.25 each in the 1950’ and 1960’s.

  • Large Lamb

    Large Lamb

    This design created by Mary Meyer herself in the very late 1940s was slightly larger than #118 which was 6” high and Retailed for $1.69 in the late 1940s and early 1950s.  #188 was made in White and in the mid 1950s a Black version was added.  The larger Lamber – #122 also was made of White plush made by Baxter, Kelly & Faust in their Philadelphia, pa. mill. In the late 1940s and early 1950s it was stuffed by hand with garneted cotton. I can remember 4 women sitting around (on all 4 sides) of a box of stuffing pushing wads of cotton into the opening of a toy.  The felt eyes, nose and tongue were then sewn onto the toy at the proper places on their faces. In the mid 1950s sewing was replaced by cementing the facial decorations onto the toy and finally a Red satin ribbon was attached.

  • Sitting Fox

    Sitting Fox

    This Sitting Fox was the smallest of this series. I designed it in 1959 and it was made

    originally in Red plush from Baxter, Kelly & Faust in their Philadelphia, Pa. mill. It had a

    White plush nose and ear-linings, was stuffed with shredded foam rubber and had felt

    eyes and tongue and a Black pompon nose with satin neck-ribbon.

    It was later made in an Apricot colored plush with a Red satin ribbon as shown here.

    This Fox was one of my favorite designs and was made in a number of sizes including

    10”, 12” and 21” high Foxes.

    In 1969 or 1970 we made a 6” version of this sitting Fox for Russell Stover Candies for

    a Valentine product. We made 15,000 of these small Sitting Foxes.
