1988 Pee-Wee Pterri the Pteradactyl Stuffed Toy Mint in Box
1988 Pee-Wee Pterri the Pteradactyl Stuffed Toy Mint in Box

Manufacturer: Matchbox Item 3520
Condition: Good figure and near mint box
First edition vintage collectable

From the amazing mind of Paul Reubens it’s one of the stars of the 80’s – 90’s TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, it’s vintage Pterri the Pteradactyl! Pterri is 13” tall made of stuffed and sewn polyester and polyurethane. Everyone in the Playhouse agrees Pterri is the most cuddly Pteradactyl ever! Pterri is about 12” tall from eyeballs to claws, and his tail is another 7” long and his poseable wings stretch out to almost two feet across! Push the front of Pterri’s chest and his wings will flap!

The colorful box shows photos from the TV show and has a slight crease on the logo at the front of the box. Both that area and the top back of the box are arced slightly from the area where it touches the back of Pterri’s head, but it doesn’t detract from the overall amazing condtion of the box. Box size: 13 1/2“ x 15 1/2” 5 3/4“ Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only one available.

NOTE: This item was recently inspected, and we discovered some surface damage to the back of Pterri. (see photo). It was only visible once the figure was removed from the box, which he’d been in for over 30 years. Damage appears to be where the back of the puppet touched the box. The box does not show signs of damage.  When Pterri is re-attached to the box for display (with the original twist ties), the damage is not readily apparent, as you can see on the other photos. Additionally, one of the wing struts is broken. The wings do not flap when in the box so only upon removing was this discovered. For these reasons we’ve put Pterri at a CLOSEOUT PRICE. Still in great display condition with the original box!

Imagine getting a ghost delivered wth your pizza. You could if it were 1995 and you were ordering from Pizza Hut!

These are very expressive designs and a lot of fun. This type of vinyl is not very color stable, so Casper is still white, but the Ghostly Trio’s light blue color has changed to varying degrees, from bluish to greenish. See photos for color reference. The polybags are clean, with minimal wear on some of the printing.

1995 Toy Story Burger King Hand Puppet Pals Set of 4 mint in polybag

Manufacturer: Disney / Burger King
Condition: Mint condition in mint package
First edition vintage collectables

When Toy Story was released in 1995, Burger King was the exclusive quick-serve restaurant where the toys were available. The Toy Story hand puppets were realeased one per week over 4 weeks, and if you didn’t get there on the first day a new puppet was available, they were almost always gone. I visited multiple BK’s just to get a few sets of these amazingly detailed Toy Story hand puppets. Made out of several different types of polyester- smooth, soft, plushy, each puppet has it’s own textural feel. Two sets available- one in their original BK polybag, the other opened. All are in mint condition.

11” dancing Woody- Put your fingers in his back pockets and make Woody dance!
10” Buzz Lightyear- Your hands go into Buzz’s back, and your fingers go into Buzz’s arms to make him wave!
15” Rex – Your hand goes into Rex’s back. You can push out on his chest, wave his head and make his feet move!
8” Hamm – Put your hand inside Hamm’s tummy and all four fingers into his feet to make him walk!
