I've had this rabbit all my life and I'm not expecting it to be worth hundreds or dollars. It was a gift from my late grandfather and I was just curious. He has no tags, and is relatively large.
Thanks!

Unfortunately without a brand it is going to be hard to research.

This site has a lot of experts so someone else may recognize him and know exactly who he is! I sold plush animals for years in the 1980s-early 1990s and don't recognize him....sorry.

My suggestion for you if no one here can help is if you have lots of patience, you can describe him to Google, click on Google images and scroll through the photos to find a match to learn more. It would be helpful to enter an approximate year and the size...like a search of 18 inch stuffed bunny 1999 and then tweak the search as you see what you see. Like if he is musical add the song or if he has some other unique feature, add that.

Once you learn his name, you can go to eBay and look at SOLD auctions to see how much people are paying for him. NEVER us current auctions to develop a value for him as people can ask the world, value is only what people will pay for something in today's market!

Hope this gets you started!

It would be very difficult for someone to identify your rabbit without more information.

We do not know how old he is as you say all your life but then, you did not give us your age.

Your bunny is most likely one that was purchased at a department store mixed in with several hundred other bunnies (maybe even at Easter time?) and will probably not have any true resale value.

I feel sure you wish to keep him so you must just wish to know if he is valuable? I believe his only true value will be with someone who loves him and the happy memories he brings to mind.

Perhaps I am wrong and someone will come along that knows more about this type of thing and will be able to supply you with more information.

Doing research on Google with the information you supplied will not provide very much:

It looks like a Green Bay Packers plush made by Cooperstown Bears. Officially licensed NFL product.

This bear is honestly a mystery. All I know is for my thirteen years of life he's been by my side after I found him in a box in my childhood home. He was dark blue when I first found him, and as you can see, he's been through a lot.

His tag says "Baby Roots Jean's" on his chest. And obviously I've looked him up, but to no avail. If he's worth anything, ( I'm aware of his state, thanks so much) let me know! Thanks!

Aww! It does look well loved.

If it was not a promotional item for the jean company, the bear has the lines of bear sewing pattern from the 1980s (or maybe even older), that I used to make (sweet tipped ears).

I frequently used old jeans (and other old clothing items) so there is a chance he is handmade (not by me since I am not familiar with that jean name...mine would have been old Levis or Wranglers).

Ad

I used to incorporate tags, pocket studs, and such from the jeans into my design, like his design.

Does the tag at the bottom have any information about stuffing content? If not, it could be the seamstress took the jeans tag and fixed it in the tush.

Tags on manufacturered plush animals are supposed to have the stuffing content in them. I am not sure when the content thing became a requirement, but if the tag wasn't from a pair of jeans, and it has no stuffing content, that could help you date him.

As for value, I would say he has the most in sentimental value, but very little in monetary. Sentimental value is good, but it is disappointing when things don't have much monetary value.

Thanks for sharing him!

I know it's extremely unlikely, but can anyone help me identify which company made this?

This tiger has been my best friend for as long as I can remember. I received him sometime in the early 1990s, likely 1991-1993.

I would never sell him, so "value" is unimportant. He's my most valued item and will forever stay that way. I'm just very curious who made him.

Ad

Unfortunately I cut his tag off many many years ago and the person who bought it for me is now gone. (Though I doubt he'd have remembered where he bought it anyway.)

He is about 7 inches long (excluding the tail which is about 4 inches). He has a hard nose and eyes. He used to have whiskers. His tail is more flat than rounded as some of my other tiger plushies are. He is not filled with beads or anything.

I've tried Google/eBay searching several times over the years, but no luck. Does anyone recognize him?

Does anyone know anything about this stuffed rabbit? I picked it up at a second hand store a quite a few years ago. I was wondering if the rabbit has a name so I can research it. Any input would be helpful. Thank you.

I ran across this bunny picture while I was trying to find a repellent recipe to keep them out of my yard..my Jack Russell Terrorist has an obsession with them and well, what he thinks are the snacks that they leave for him. I know, YUCK! Anyway, this bunny looks familiar, but I can't place it. There is an application on my new "hi-tech" phone called "Google Goggles" that you can download for free from the app market with whatever cellphone carrier you have. You simply take a picture and pull up the Goggle program to search for it. Right now, it does not do well for animals and doesn't have a huge library other than places and artwork loaded, but it is worth a try. You may already have an answer by now, but it didn't look like it came from here. Good luck!

I received this orange tabby in 1997 for Christmas. My mom bought it at JC Penney and it was the last one there. I really want one for my daughter and have scoured the internet in search for her and have come up empty. She is 12 inches long from head to butt, her tail is 8 inches long and is not stuffed, with a white tip. Her feet are filled with beads, but her body is filled with stuffing. She has a realistic looking beaded nose, blue eyes, and clear long plastic whiskers. I remember the logo had a train on it, but the tag is now completely white. If anyone has any information on the company or her it would be immensely appreciated! I have attached pictures of her.

Thank you all!

This may be a long shot, but this eBay vendor has a 1997 JC Penney Christmas Catalog. Perhaps if you ask, he/she could tell you if the tabby is in the book and if so, it will have the info on who made it.

Sure is nice and clean to be this old.
I feel sure this exact cat is no longer made but you may be able to find an updated version.
These links to current versions may be as close as you will find.

So I have had this stuffy for a long time and I would like to know what brand it is in order to get another one. Also these colours are faded so it was originally light blue with the bright purple and blue mixed in, and the feather boa was very fluffy.

I took the pictures myself. I received it as a gift around 2007, in Toronto, ON, Canada. The tag was removed a long time ago, so I have no idea who the manufacturer is. he original gifter does not remember where they got it from. Where can I buy this plush duck?

Gund and Applause made toys like this. I would send those pictures to the customer service department of both companies.

I've had this cow since I was about 2 or three (I'm almost 21 for reference), and I have no idea what brand it is. I got it from an old daycare teacher as a birthday present and love him, but have never had any info on him since his tags have been long gone. He's made of terrycloth and is the size of a regular pillow so he's pretty big. If anyone knows anything it'd be really helpful! Thanks!

I am not so much interested in what they are worth, though that would be interesting. Can anyone give me any information on this cat and kitten I bought at a jumble sale? It is stuffed with what feels like straw. There are no tags or labels, the eyes are on long rather dangerous pins!

Can you identify who made this Winnie the Pooh Bear, the year it was made and how much it's worth? It's made of felt with bulky, hard thick stuffing.

Thank you in advance. I really appreciate it.

Both Sears and Applause made these toys. Depending on the size, it could be worth from $15 to $50.

If I count right, he is 12 inches, which I believe makes him the retired 1998 Mattel version, which sadly had not held his value and repeatedly goes unsold in the under 10 range.

See this link: www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313...

These were hot that year and there are so many that the price has dropped. Sorry to be bearer of not so hot news.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture! But I have a very clear memory of what she looked like, and I will try to describe it best I can.

This Pegasus plush stuffie was probably from around 2003-2006. It was pretty small, 5-6 inches in length, and four-legged, not sitting on its hind legs like a teddy bear. It was white, with its wings, inner ears, and limb tips (hooves) being baby pink. It had two strips of extra fuzz as a mane and a tail; I'm not sure what exact material this was because I only remember it being very dryer-damaged, but while dryer damaged it was like rolled up wool in the shape of a mohawk. Its eyes were small simple black bead eyes.

This ( https://cdn3.volusion.com/9nxdj.fchy5/v/vspfiles/photos/AR-02487-3.jpg?1484729581 ) is the closest thing I can find, except:
1. wings, ears, hooves are baby pink
2. face shape is different, much simpler
3. wings are larger
4. eyes have no color, just black

I have a stuffed animal that I've had since I was a baby. And it was my mother's before me. It is a dog, that is what I was told, but I called it "Bunny". It use to be pink on the ears, arms, and legs. And it also has a music box. My mom is 37 years old. I'm not sure how long she's had it, but maybe that gives you an idea. The music box doesn't play anymore and I've always wanted to replace it, but have never been able to find the right melody.
