Another mystery I dug up when I first started car booting 25 years ago was a brace of vintage hard plastic animals: a pinkish purple snail, a blue elephant and a yellow lion. I had no idea what they were.
The snail and elephant can be seen here in the pic I found online today:
and the yellow lion here flanked by chums.
For the last quarter of a century I have been flummoxed by the identity of these toys. The cartoonish looks may suggest a zoo set or maybe a circus. The chap in blue who I am seeing for the first time online today backs this up as he could be either a circus ringleader or a zoo keeper. He could even be a circus train driver.
There appear to be possibly more related animals in the set as seen in these pictures I chanced on today, although the lion is a different one.
Have you any idea who made these plastic animals or any other info readers?
