Neighborhood of Make-Believe Playset

I recently picked up a 1977 Musical Trolley for a great price considering it came with the original box. Too bad it was missing the Daniel and Lady Elaine figures.

More important to me than the Trolley itself is getting a closer look at the elusive Neighborhood of Make-Believe playset shown on the back of the box. Rendered as a drawing, it still is enough to make me want this set more than ever.


How in the world are the Ideal puppets and Musical Trolley all over the place but any trace of this playset seems to have been erased from existence?

The search has just intensified...

Daniel Striped Tiger Play Watch [1980]

I came across this watch on eBay recently (curious, but not wanting to spend a fortune, I put in a small bid at the last minute but was outbid in the end).

As you're likely aware, Daniel Striped Tiger wore a wrist watch -- so what better character to use than Daniel when it came to teaching young people to tell time?

The images that I have of this watch are not the greatest quality but you can get the general idea. The few details included in the auction listing mentioned that this was made around 1980 by Milwaukee's Jak Pak, Inc.

Congratulations to the person who won this auction. To that person (or anyone else who might have this watch), I'd love to hear from you and get some better images of this great piece of memorabilia.
