Can anyone identify this stuffed animal?

Asked by invadero (13 points ) November 13th, 2012

I got it from my grandfather when I was a boy. I’ve had it for about 12 years. The tag is completely rubbed off, only a few letters are noticeable. Any help would be great!

Hi, welcome to Fluther. Looks like a stegosaurus to me….

Another vote for the dinosaur. Looks like it’s made of felt.

@invadero Welcome to Fluther. Even worn out, the dino is cute as a trick. It’s definitely a stegosaurus.

@all, OP knows it’s a stegosaurus – see the tags. I think he’s hoping to learn the brand. Correct me if I’m wrong, OP. Unfortunately I can’t help.

Any chance it’s Definitely Dinosaurs?

“Definitely Dinosaurs was a collection of dinosaur toys produced by Playskool in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Each figure was branded with a distinctive stamp on its underbelly or leg to indicate authenticity. All of the figures in the series were dinosaurs”

The timeline seems right, and the tag sounds right.

Edit: Eh, looks like those are figurines rather than stuffed toys…still looking.

I don’t think it’s a Definitely Dinosaurs toy, because I believe those were hard, not stuffed. And TY beanie babies would be the right timeframe, but this isn’t the stegosaurus they released.

Any chance it’s just a generic stegosaurus toy, perhaps from one of those claw machines?

I did the image search I linked to above in hopes of finding a match. It didn’t happen, probably owing to the stuffed animal’s vintage.

^I did the same. Zero matches for me, too.

Thanak everyone, I was looking for the brand. Tried to find it before I asked on here couldn’t find it. I appreciate everyone’s help though!

@invadero From the looks of some older Dakin stegosaurus photos on the Net, it appears this might be a Dakin. The body shape and materials look strikingly similar to some larger versions.

Maybe you can send the picture to the people who run this website. Unfortunately, if you search their items for Dakin stegosaurus, you come up with a gray one that doesn’t look quite like yours.

@Kropotkin Really? It can’t be called a dinosaur because it isn’t made to scale? And there’s more remaining than just fossilized bones, smart guy. Technically, birds are considered dinosaurs. Also, a coelacanth was found in 1938, and it was supposed to have been extinct since the Cretaceous period.
