Toys TOYS

Bean Bag Baby Matchbox Doll

These toys had strange little bean bag bodies and plastic heads with bobble hats (not always babies') and also came as a range of animals too. The babies lived in a small matchbox. Cruel huh?

I used to have hundreds of these, can't remember why I collected them but my sister used to love pulling the heads off and squeezing out the beans. She was evil!
