I went home recently to visit family - celebrated Mother's Day, some birthdays, and graduation all at the same time! There was a day when everyone else was away and busy, so I went around to some thrift stores and found a few fun items. I found the Fisher Price cash register and the vintage Care Bear Cousin - Cozy Heart Penguin, at the same shop and was quite pleased! Cozy Heart looks like new, so at first I was a little worried that it was an anniversary reproduction release. It had an old tag though so that gave me hope. Once I got home I compared it with my personal anniversary release Funshine and found the tags were quite different! Thank goodness, it is vintage! Yeah! I took some pictures of the tags for comparison and will write up a post to compare at a later date. :)
I later found a little Pound Puppy and a Sweet Kisses My Little Pony named Ruby Lips. "Red-lipstick" appears when you brush her lips with cold water - and disappears if you give her a kiss. I remember this kind temperature change gimmick being very common with toys in the 80s and 90s. I wonder if they still use this trick with new toys.
