Or given to kids whose dad went to Australia in the late 70's, early 80's. wish I still had the one my dad gave me.
This brought a smile to my face. I wasn't lucky enough to visit Australia or know anyone who did as a kid, but I had a koala that hugged a pencil just like that, given to me by my Papaw. I loved that thing!
I´ve never been to Australia either, but I also had a little koala hugging my pensil;)Thank you for this little nostalgia trip <3
we had these!!!! ahh what memories!!
Oh I remember these little pencil pets in the 60s. From memory they didn't come together! Fabulous find ... not quite as good as finding you tho' ;)
I used to have one of these koalas too! Not sure where it came from but I used to love it! I'm pretty sure I was a total nerd and used to wear it on my shirt collar....it was my little friend...:)
I did too - though I think it was from my Mom's roommate who's folks lived in Oz.Haven't thought of that little thing in 25 years or so. Wacky! :)
