PostSubject: YOWIE Bilby puzzle   Thu 07 Jun 2012, 22:34

Can anyone help me with this bilby. It was given to me maybe around 15 years ago. It is a puzzle model of a bilby, Australia's equivalent of the easter bunny.

As you can see, at some point I must've thought it looked better without ears...so they went, which is a real disapointment. Mad But still happy to own a bilby.

The head and tail can move up and down seperately.

Can anyone tell me anything about the model itself?

Thanks

It looks very much like an Australian Yowie, but I don`t know if they existed 15 years ago scratch

Arrrh, what a shame with the ears. Children do the weirdest things to their toys sometimes. Well, that is why old collector`s items become so rare Rolling Eyes Wink

I may well be wrong with the date. I have just searched Australian yowie bilby and it is exactly that, from series 1 apparently.

Massivly annoying about the ears, maybe I was trying to make a mouse? scratch I used to regularly 'modify' toys I had when I was younger - not in a 'Sid from Toy Story' way - but I used to think I was making them better... No

Real pitty Laughing Thanks for the help

I have a friend, of about my age that when he was a boy was always making experiences with his sister's dolls. Of course the end of the story was a destroyed doll and a girl very sad. Now she is an adulte collector of old dolls and he helps her restoring them, something that she is not able and he does in a spectacular way. An inventive man and a happy woman. Of course I don't like when children destroy toys, unless when it is made in an ingenious way. Laughing
