Browse all three pages for some awesome CPK history and if you’re renaming a ‘Kid, customizing a ‘Kid or naming an actual kid, there’s plenty of names here for inspiration. On to the names!
It’s so sad to part with toys but the time comes and I have a great vintage Puppy Brite for sale that you can view full pics for on ebay under: Seller aeru2 Puppy Brite. Puppy Brite:“This vintage Puppy Brite plush doll is from the beloved 80s cartoon Rainbow Brite. Manufactured by Hallmark, Puppy Brite first appeared in the Rainbow Brite movie “Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer” and is friends with Kitty Brite. He even had to work with Rainbow’s magnificent horse Starlight to bring the Color Sceptor to her to restore Rainbow Land in “Return to Rainbow Land.” Puppy has a soft plushie body and sweet moulded face to brighten anyone’s day. From a smoke-free home.”
I don’t sell my toys often but it’s time to part ways. Over on ebay I have auctions going for a sweet African American 2-pony girl from OK factory who needs a little TLC and a tall, short-haired KT girl with handmade sailor outfit. You can view full pics on the listing: Seller aeru2 AA girl for sale,KT girl for sale.AA OK Girl: “Has long ponytails and her original blue dress and bloomers. She comes from the Coleco OK factory and has the typical round face, big eyes and very chubby legs of an OK ‘Kid. Her face is clean and she has one sweet little dimple. Some notes on her clothing and condition: The bloomers’ elastic is stretched so they could use a stitch or two to tighten. She does not have a diaper; she is wearing a pair of plain white handmade bloomers underneath her dress. Her hair-ribbons are new and she is a doll who needs a little body TLC just in the foot, her toe thread has come unraveled, nothing a novice sewer can’t manage. An excellent pre-loved playdoll or addition to a less-than-mint collection. Thanks so much for looking and for more awesome 80s toys please check out my other auctions!”KT Girl: “Blonde girl is from the KT factory in China (Kam Yeun Toys) which manufactured for Coleco. KT Kids are a little bigger than average CPK so this little blondie is a bit tall for her age. She’s in excellent condition with her original hair ribbon and diaper. Her clothes are not the originals- she is wearing a handmade sailor suit with matching bloomers and tam and she has some pretty kicking infant hitops to complete her ensemble. She has been out of her box for about a year in a smoke-free home and has no visible flaws (box is unavailable).Thanks so much for looking; serious bidders only. For more awesome 80s toys check out my other actions please!”
There were only three holiday pony issues in the G1 line; the adults being Merry Treat (pictures) and an earth pony named Stockings and the smaller being the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies mail in baby pony which was unnamed but is generally referred to as “Baby Stockings.”
