Disney Pop-Up Toy
As a baby this was my favorite toy: a Disney Pop-Up Button Toy Thingy! Screw your Tickle-Me Elmos & your battery powered baby cars... back in my day, THIS was technologically advanced (actually, Teddy Ruxpin was probably much more technologicallly-advanced, what with the "state-of-the-art" cassette player in his back & all, but that bear gave me the $&%#@! creeps!)
It always kinda bothered me that Dumbo of all characters would be in it. I mean seriously, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Pluto & Dumbo? How does he fit in? & for some reason, the thing that activates the Pluto pop-up is broken, so I don't remember what the mechanism was to make him appear. I'm surprised I didn't snap off Pluto entirely, with me trying to pry him open for the past 18 years.
I still have this toy in my attic somewhere. If I find it, I'll be playing with it all weekend, or at least until I find something even MORE exciting that that. Now if I only knew where my Sit & Spin was...
