The bottom reads...

Steve, I don't know Toy Major range or style but usually they are marked TM. Maybe someone can help you better here. Anyway congratulations for finding back your toys with the help of your Mother! :)

That is a beautyful and interesting find Shocked
So much the better as it was in your own loft cheers

It looks like Toy Major made it as an advertising object for some Sea World in Australia.
That little delphin must have traveled very far Very Happy
Does you or your Mom know anybody who could have been there some years ago ? scratch

Here is what I can find on Australian Ebay right now : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I think the TM stands for trademark (on the Sea World name) rather than Toy Major. I could be wrong though. I usually am. Laughing

K´m on, Kristie ! You are such a smart young lady Wink Laughing

Its correct that TM is Trade Mark and (C) is copyright, given that they have also dated the figure (in terms of year). This would usually signify an OEM (trade term) or product made directly for a customer under their own design which is protected under copyright law from any direct duplication. However the bigger companies can (dependant upon quantity ordered) also request a manufacturer to re-brand their own product under certain circumstances. So Manufacturer is uncertain, it could be any HK/China factory of that time, not necessarily a famous animal manufacturer. However he has a certain magnetism all of his own and is sure to be one of a limited edition. So, wonderful Dolphin and be happy.............................................I like him! Very Happy
