I generally try not to take advantage of this blog for my own ends, but occasionally I come across something I want but just can’t find–not even on eBay. Such a one is this talking Santa Claus toy.
It was made in 1994 by the Kurt Adler company and has an electronic talking feature. It was probably sold in drug stores and so forth. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever found to a “realistic” six-inch-ish scale Santa Claus.
If anyone has one of these or sees one at a flea market or whatever and would be willing to sell or trade it, you’d make a Christmas-loving toy blogger very, very happy. Honestly I don’t have much hope…it’d be a Christmas miracle!
