Dexter Dog made by Fisher Price from 1978 to 1985. Dexter is
a yellow foam-filled terrycloth dog that rattles when shaken. This
one is complete and in excellent condition, having only the issue that
is, unfortunately, unavoidable on this piece. That is, 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
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.
