I got one of these at a plea market, and found the other one in an old toy box as my grandmother's house. I just now noticed they seem to be from the same set. I guess they came from cereal boxes.
The backs of these trophies give very helpful assembly advice. I bet the kids who didn't know how to read English were really confused about what to do.
This is pretty nifty. It's a very tiny giraffe in a train car, and the giraffe has some pivoting motion inside the cage but I can't figure out the purpose.

Cool stuff. Did you mean to write 'plea market'; it is a wonderful play on words. The p and f are pretty far away on the keyboard is why i'm wondering. Whenever I go to a flea market, I haggle, or PLEA with the Seller. You are a MONSTER among wordsmiths if this was intended. If not, uh... nice toys !ReplyDelete
(REGARDLESS: I am stealing plea-market and making it my own HAH HAH HA HAH HAAAAA !)
wow these are great! you should make a little trophy case for them. i bet that giraffe is a happy giraffe.....ReplyDelete
That's right Brad!! Giraffe's are always always always happy! Sorry, still reeling from KW's threat to draw a demonic giraffe.ReplyDelete
KW: It's difficult to see what makes that monkey a "champion." He seems, at best, an average monkey - and that's being kind. Let's face it. His expression suggests some pretty dim wattage. -- Mykal
Man,you've got a great blog here! Good stuff!ReplyDelete
Lysdexicuss- after all the praise on my word smithery it's very tempting to say i did that on purpose, but i'm ashamed to say it was accidental. Don't ask me how I got that far off. It must have been Freudian or something.ReplyDelete
Brad- ha ha! what giraffe wouldn't be happy locked in a cage so small they had to cut a hole in the top to accommodate his head?
Mykal- Ha ha! you are right, that monkey does seem kind of average. Maybe we just can't tell from the photo but he's a genius when it comes to banana eating.
Shawn- Thanks sir for the visit and comment! Have a happy day
happy valentines day
