1978 Dexter Dog #438
From the Fisher Price "Animal Grabbers" series

Vintage Fisher Price Dexter Dog Animal Grabber       

This is the #438 Dexter Dog made by Fisher Price from 1978 to 1985.  Dexter was a yellow foam-filled terrycloth dog head that rattles when shaken. This one is complete and in very good condition, having only the issues that are, unfortunately, unavoidable on this piece.  First, the foam inside the toy has totally disintegrated so what you will be getting is a virtually empty shell.  You can feel the rattle inside the dog, but the sound is very faint.  Perhaps it is clogged with the remnants of disintegrated foam.  I really don't know.

Now on to the good news.  Dexter is in great shape.  I find no holes or tears on him.  All his features are intact as well, and his original tag is attached.  This toy is machine washable, but from the look of it, I don't believe it was ever washed.  It looks nice and clean, but you may want to wash it anyway if you will be giving it to a baby.

Larger pictures are available upon request.
