The Oswald merchandise previously posted on your site is available only inside “UFO Catcher” games, not regular retail outlets. They are being made by a company called Taito as fodder for their game centers (prizes for their crane games – about $1 a try). Taito is introducing new products each month. The watches were premiums for the machines last September.

Bill sent more toy and doll images – and I’ve started to collect them on this dedicated webpage.
