    It would, but these old 'Nite Lites' are not worth the risk. They're large converted squeakers. The factory cut the base and fitted the light and switch and then drilled a few holes in the top of the sculpt to release hot air.

    Even with the original low wattage bulb, the one I tested got extremely hot. Pretty much at the point of melting after a few minutes. I'm amazed they got away with selling them, but obviously this was before stricter health and safety laws arrived.

    I know, I came here to edit that part out. You were ahead of me. My nerdy excitement overcame me. :)

    Yep, mainly European. Spanish and Italian. Not so much English speaking, I think Italian Squeaky/Rubber toys are the pinnacle of vintage stuff ... Also, luckily for me, a lot of Combex is UK postage only.

    I'll shut-up now ...

    Yeah I really like the Ledra Disney line. I also have some Nakajima Disney but those are more cute whereas Ledra is more “rough” looking

    I think I know what you mean. I love Ledra for the tactile feel, the scale of their figures is larger than most, and they're very well made. Its one of the reasons I love squeakers so much. They're really durable. They have a weight and strength to them that you don't see in a lot of toys ...

    Took a few years to find this pooch, in fact, more than just a few. I've always thought of him as the Chinese dog, but now i have him in hand i don't really know why!

    Hole punched in the front most probably for a kids toothbrush.

    7" high.

    12" vintage Giraffe, no makers marks. He was absolutely covered in grime, but cleaned up really nice. I think he's Italian made, thats my guess anyway. The squeaker is positioned in his chest on the front.

    Ha! Unfortunately for that excellent idea, there's a tail in the way and its batty crease is too deep.

    Nice!
    Killing it with the selections. Thanks for sharing. Love all three of those elephants, and as a group they're formidable. Are they all by the same manufacturer? They look similar in style and vinyl ...

    I have the reclining Kewpie too, but I've never seen the sitting version before ... toys sitting down usually look good to me ...
