I wondered when I asked my husband and friends, since there were born in the late 50’s, if they remembered the soap and they looked at me like I had lost it! I told them I would Google it and show them because I knew it existed! I loved the soap and remember checking it daily until it grew hair all over. Also, at the end there was a small toy inside! I can’t believe something so small would prove to be such a great memory! I am so glad to see there are others whom had the pleasure of enjoying this soap as a child.

Although too young to have had a fuzzy wuzzy my ma waxed lyrical about them, I received a hair growing soap in the shape of a cat recently as a Christmas present and I loved it. And my ma says they smell the same as the bears and you get something in the middle of the soap too. I love fuzzy soaps!

I’ve bought so many of these cat soaps now both my stepdaughter and I love them and it adds a real boost to bath time.

I remembered Fuzzy Wuzzy soap after a friend from high school was reminiscing about it and wondered if anyone else recalled the cute, fun soap. Nice to see it is still around! It was just one of those funny things from childhood, and nice to think back on. Maybe that's where the Chia Pet people got their idea! haha...

I just found this web site from an ebay link. I was beginning to think I had imagined my Fuzzy Wuzzy cat! I can still smell that soap, and I remember the little mouse toy that was inside of him! I had received Fuzzy Wuzzy cat for Christmas in 1963 when we were living in San Rafael, Ca. We were horribly poor, and this was one of the few things I did get that Christmas. It provided a lot of fun for such a small item! he really did grow hair!

I am 57 years old and most of my peers have never heard of this soap. I spent over 30 years in California Law Enforcement, and I never had a partner who had heard of it! They would look at me like I was working waaay too many Graveyard shifts!

Thanks for the memories!

THANK YOU!!!! I thought I was going insane! I am 39 years old. No one I knows remembers this, including my sister. I was beginning to doubt my memory banks. I LOVED this soap! I can still picture taking a bath with it and playing like it was a doll. I would love to find it. We had so many great, unique things in the 70's and 80's. I had a Cher doll that could tan in the sun. Don't think promoting tanning these days would fly though, but I loved that.

I was just talking to my husband this morning and was remember my fuzzy wuzzy soaps when I was younger. I am 53 years old now but I remember the advertisements for them and my sister and I begging my mother for these. I was sure that Avon made these but I guess not. I would love to know if anyone knows where anyone could find these. I would love to send my sister some for her birthday. She would be so surprised. There are quite a few things that I remember from my childhood and all the toys and games that we played with. As for the smell of them, I remeber I would smell them but really, they kind of smelled like a cheap motel soap, but at the time I thought the smell was wonderful. Please, someone let me know, if you know where these can be purchased.

My first inconter of the Fuzzy Fuzzy Bear Soap was when my lovely girlfriend mentioned it to me and she will not STOP talking about it and how it smelled " PLEASE HELP ME" will somebody remark on how it smelled PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Our bath time will never be the same if the only thing she talks about is the sent of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear Soap.

I remember receiving this soap for Christmas. My sister had one too. In fact, after Christmas my mom and dad still bought it for us. Does anyone remember in the era there use to be another type of soap item...it looked like a static clean sheet and came with a floor mat for the tub. You held the static clean sheet under running water and soap bubbles would appear in the tub. It had pictures on the sheet of fish, cartoons, etc. The floor mat would match the soap sheet. Anyway, I love Fuzzy Wuzzy was a Bear. We studied that soap in Chemistry at Colorado School of Mines back in 1980. I am 48 years old and have talked about that soap throughout the years...

I'm 46 and the only people who remember this soap is my family.

I can't tell you how much I loved that soap...what a concept!

I only remembered the bear though until I looked on ebay and found someone selling these. I bought one toot sweet...I think it cost about $50...they didn't have the bear but I recieved a different one....the plastic package was broken so it didn't grow any fur but it sits on my bathroom shelf and I love looking at it everyday. I also purchased a magnet...it was just a photo of the package and not very good quality but I still liked it.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was the BEST!

Would you believe no one remembers this soap!! I LOVED it!! I had a plastic skeleton on this inside of mine.. I hadn't seen this soap for years untill I went to the gift shop at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose CA in like 1982, they had one so I bought it... packed it away, and well, it should be here somewhere!!

I thought that this soap was a figment of my imagination. Nobody seemed to remember it but me. I remember waiting for the bear to grow hair and then finding a prize inside of the bear when the soap was gone. I got a tiny plastic hotdog in a bun.

I tell you that I was set back 30 years when I found Fuzzy Wuzzy soap on line! I can still to this day remember being in my parents' bathroom sink and playing with my soap.

With all the new age technology - it sure is a pleasure to go back into time and remember what was so simple and fun!!!!!

I am proud to be 53 years old. I remember Fuzzy Wuzzy Bath soap. When our's was finally used up there were little, hard, plastic Fuzzy Wuzzy bear toys inside. It sat on the windowsill of our bathroom for years. Mine was red, my sister's.

I also remember Varoom Motors. We had them on our Schwinn one-speed bicycles. Mine was white with pink stripes. My sister's was royal blue with silver.

I also had shampoo and bubble bath that came in really cool containers that looked like Yogi Bear and Huckleberry hound.

Speaking of treats....my favorite was the Seven Up bar. It had seven segments of chocolate, each with a different filling. What a magnificant creation and feat of engineering!!! My favorite segment had a brazil nut in it.

Have fun reminiscing.

Ohhh, I am soooo sad this is not made anymore. My mother too, recited the saying. I do not remember the prize, but I remember watching daily as the fuzz grew!!!

We were just talking about varoom engines the other day. That is another one few people remember.

Does anyone remember, "Dinkie Twinkies?" (Not to be confused with "Ding Dongs") Dinkie Twinkies looked the same, almost tasted the same as Ding Dongs, but was shaped differently - like a yellow Hostess Twinkie we know today, but Dinkie Twinkies were chocolate.

Thanks for this website and thanks for the memories!!!

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear fuzzy wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?

That's how I remember the saying. I am a child of the sixties and I remember that saying. The kids I grew up with and I made it into a jump rope song. I had a bear along with my brothers and sisters. I remember it growing a moldy fuzz on it. I remember being disappointed because I was expecting real bear hair. Loved it any way. Cannot remember the toy inside. Hey! Does any one remember the Flatsy doll. Flatsy flatsy their flat and that's that.

THE SUBJECT OF THE SOAP CAME UP OUT OF THE BLUE WHEN THE DRUMMER IN A BAND I USE TO PLAY IN ASKED IF I REMEMBERED IT. ALL OF A SUDDEN MY 53 YEAR OLD MIND WAS TRANSPORTED TO THE 60’S. I SMILED REAL BIG & LAUGHED & SAID YES I DO !! IT’S STRANGE HOW A SIMPLE QUESTION CAN UNLOCK A FLOOD OF MEMORIES. IT WAS A GREAT GAG TO GET KIDS TO WASH UP. I’M HAPPY TO SEE SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE GREAT FOND MEMORIES OF IT!!!

I am 49 and can remember the soap as a treat of my childhood. I can sometimes smell the aroma driving down the road. That is what happened today.

Then I came back to the office and searched the internet to see if I could find some. Amazing how some things are embedded in our minds. Remember varooom motors for your bicycle?

I can't believe it !!! Over the years I have also asked friends if they remembered Fuzzy Wuzzy ....and I got those strange looks too. I have never found anyone who remembered the soap that grew furr - over and over again :) It was so magical!

Although I am sad that it is no longer made - I am thrilled to know there is a whole loyal following of Fuzzy Wuzzers out there !! And that I didn't just imagine it !

One of my best memories (and it is a little fuzzy, no pun intended!) is my Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear Soap. Those were the days when you went to a real drugstore to get medications & toiletries, before all the Walgreens and CVS's of the world came along... and there on the shelf sat the Fuzzy Wuzzy display. I really don't recall the prize inside, just the soap getting fuzzy. It seemed magical at the time! I remember my Mother would recite the poem about "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair..." really wish someone would get the rights to this or something and produce it again.

I've been looking for Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear Soap for so long. Many people don't believe that there was such a thing. I've only found one person who knew about it. My memory is of waiting and waiting for the fuzz to grow, only to have my little sister get mine wet. I was so mad at her! Of course, she doesn't remember this either.

Wow! Everybody thought I was crazy! I will be 50 next month and remember using the fuzzy soap with a prize inside. I grew up in Germany and think it might have been another brand. I have been looking for proof of it's existence for years!

Thank you,

Hi,I am 47 years old,and I remember Fuzzy Wuzzy Soap.

I use to love the way it got all fuzzy and soft.The best part was the prize in the belly.Does anyone remember what the prizes were? I remember my mother buying this soap for us at a store named Grants.I tell my kids about this soap all the time,that's how I found this ad.I just had to show them.

I still remember the saying:

       Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,
       Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair,
       Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy,
       Wuz he?

I'm in the next generation from everyone posted here. My parents are tail-end boomers, I'm a tail-end Gen Xer.

Imagine the wild stares I've received in the past 20 years in conversations with friends where this came up... "Hey, do any of you remember cute little bars of soap that grew fur? Not 'real' fur, but actual soft fuzz?"

Even my husband thought I was nuts, and couldn't quite grasp the concept, or the appeal when I found this site. I didn't remember the product name Fuzzy Wuzzy, but I knew the song lyrics! My favorite uncle when I was a kid used to rattle off tongue twisters for the sheer amusement of watching me try and duplicate his quick enunciation... Funny, I never knew the two went together.

My mother was in the AirForce, and we were stationed for several years in Germany. I never saw the cute little fuzzy bear soap again after we moved back to the US.

Definitely a fond, and cool, childhood memory!

Oh My Goodness... I can't believe it...FUZZY WUZZY WAS REAL ! ! Giggling so hard that my side hurts.. I was explaining this to someone that I work with,and they looked at me like I was OUT OF MY MIND.... and they just said Suuuurrre Pauline.. It was reeeaallll.... as they patted me on the back tenderly. I'm 49 years old now.. and I remember Fuzzy Wuzzy soap as if it were yesterday. I can see it sitting on our bathroom vanity beside all my brothers Fuzzy Wuzzy's. All lined up.. growing hair. and if you dare to touch the fuzzy to see how soft it was.. it vanished right before your very eyes. My brothers would say they had special powers to dissolve the fur with a single touch. Those mean boy's..... They would use my Fuzzy Wuzzy soap instead of theirs.. to get my prize inside. Until I told Mommy.. boy they got it good... lol lol

I can't imagine what was the special ingredient was that made it grow... probably banned by the Department of Health now.... Mine was a yellow bear, he was my favorite. I sure wish I could get more.. so that I can give them to my children. I've told them about it so many times..that I have them wanting one for themselves.. and their 20 and 22 years old now.

Well thank you so very much for the 'VALIDATING" my memories so I don't have to have my husband looking for a doctor to "talk to" about it.. LOL LOL lol ..

Thanks for the lovely memories...

I'm with you all... People all thought i was having some kind of hallucination about the furry soap, but I remember it so well! It was sooo much fun, as well as some kind of spray foam toy they had for the bath...kind of like shaving cream? I remember getting to go to the store when we'd visit my grandparents, and I'd get some wax lips or a wax harmonica, Fuzzy Wuzzy soap, and a new can of foam to play with in the tub!

The thing I remember best about this toy/soap was wanting to get that red dachsund wiener dog on the hod dog bun charm. Finally got it and still have it today along with the original box and bear soap I got on Ebay recently. What a con job by a parent to get us to take a bath, mixing toys with the bath tub. Love it!

I have, from time to time, asked people in my age category (46) if they remember ever using a Fuzzy Wuzzy and I would explain what I remembered about it. The answer was always an emphatic “No” and I got looks like I had lost my mind! I asked a friend just yesterday while we were shopping about candy bars of our childhood and then I brought up Fuzzy Wuzzy. She had never heard of it but said she would look it up on the internet. She sent me this link just so I would know others had the same memory. I’m so glad that we have either all dreamed it up or that it really did exist. Why on earth did they stop making it and why doesn’t someone make it again? I’m glad I’m in good company!

I can still remember the smell of Fuzzy. I would love to see it come back just the same way it was in the 60’s. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a treat for us kids. Mom & Dad didn’t have a lot of money but Mom was sure to get us Old Fuzzy. What a wonderful memory.

And someone mentioned Mr. Bubbles. I was always up set when I used it because Mr. Bubbles never came up out of the tub like he did on the commercials.

I remember the first time that I looked up Fuzzy Wuzzy soap on E-bay! I was so excited to find it but so shocked to see the price! Here I am, 48 yrs old, and I'd love to buy a Fuzzy Wuzzy bear. It just brings back such good memories. It was such a big deal for me to see the fuzz and get the little trinket inside.

I was in an antique store today, and started to remember aobut this soap. I thought it was a dog that grew hair, but I guess it could have been a dog. My animal never grew hair but I did get a little baby martian as my prize. None of my sibs ever got one. Theirs grew hair though. Thank you for helping me to relive this.

I remember the soap getting fuzzy and I believe there was a small prize inside that made me wash my hands quite often just to get to it. I think there was a song from the commercial. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. (something something) Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy was he? I love this stuff. Has any one found an old commercial for it?

Tonight I had the wildest flashback. My two daughters (3 & 5) were taking a bath and I noticed there was no soap around. I started to think of Mr. Bubble. As a child my mother used copiuos amounts of Mr. Bubble, and then it hit me. I asked my wife if she ever had a "hair growing bear soap" ?. She looked at me curiously and said "NO". I described a bear that grew fuzz between baths .... More of the same look. I went immediately to the computer, and the rest is history (pardon the pun).

I googled Fuzzy Wuzzy after talking about it the other day. I am one of seven kids and we always got these in our Easter baskets or as a prize! I would always try to save mine whole to the end. But I remember my brother and sister breaking them open to get the prize inside! I would love to get one again!!!

Wow, there sure are a lot of us! I was just at an antique market and asked an old toy dealer if she had ever heard of fuzzy wuzzy soap, and yes, she also looked at me as if I was crazy. I decided to google it ....and here you all are! The big things I remember about fuzzy are the great smell, my grandma's bathroom and a ratfink charm inside...which I still have, amazing enough!! Thanks for confirming my memories!

This memory was added on: March 10, 2008

I remember getting the bear, but like most kids, I didn't have the patience to wait for the full fuzzy effect...I remember a bit of fuzz, then off to the bath tub! After a few baths, the soap still wasn't worn down enough to get to the gem of a prize inside, so I made like a rat and actually chewed the soap away. I vividly remember the awful taste, but I endured and finally go the red trinket inside...not sure what it was, but I remember being pretty disappointed after gnawing away half a fuzzy wuzzy bear. Any time I get a whiff of a certain fragrance used in soaps, I get a fuzzy flashback.

I was just talking to a client yesterday about the fuzzy wuzzy bear soap and he suggested I google it. I was born in Nyack , New York in 1961 and remember the product when I was around 7 or so. I had blue, pink and yellow. I remember being disappointed when it would stop growing hair, but it never stopped me from bugging my mom to buy more! It was great fun and made we wash my hands more often (I am sure my grandmother loved that!)!

I remember Winky Dink cartoons on TV and the kit you could buy, I remember the hard plastic clothes I could buy for Gumby and Pokey, and I remember Cecile the friendly sea Serpent. I still have my troll from when I was 5!

Thanks for bringing back great memories everyone!

I had to laugh at this one!... I was telling a friend about the Fuzzy Wuzzy's and she looked at me like I had gone crazy...She is seven years younger that I (47) and couldn't recall anything like I was talking about...I knew what it was...the name fuzzy Wuzzy and the bear...I was only about 3 or 4 or 5..but..I knew that I had this product at one time..I remember thinking it was the coolest thing waiting to see the fuzz grow....Does anyone know if they make something similar today because I would love to get it for my 6 year old.

Yes i too am imprinted with "fuzzy wuzzy was a bear" as one of my first product obsessions , i had a couple. they gave me great delight.

What else is in collective consciousness : space sticks - food of astronauts - quisp and quake cereal toys - the banana splits -

o.k. i better go before i have a breakthrough.

I also had a coonskin cap and leather jacket with fringe

Ok, you got me! I guess I will add my Fuzzy Wuzzy memory too! It seems most of us "Fuzzy fans" are 1960s vintage. I was born in '61 and like so many others who have written, one of my favorite childhood memories is of having Fuzzy Wuzzy soap. I always had the bear and I believe it was yellow. I remember always washing my hands for 5 minutes at a time, just to get to the toy quicker! However, I don't remember it being a hotdog. Rather, in my "fuzzy" memory it was a little plastic charm in the shape of an iron (maybe that sounds crazy, but that's what I remember anyway!) It was so much fun watching the fuzz "grow". If you left the soap alone after the fuzz grew --- didn't touch it at all---- it would last a while, but not long I don't think (a week or so?). Then it seemed to "die". But of course once you got it wet that was it, the hair never grew back. Like others of you, I, too would ask people if they remembered Fuzzy Wuzzy, and when I explained that it was soap in the shape of a bear that "grew hair", they usually looked at me like I was on drugs or something. Finally, I called my mother to verify that there had indeed been such a thing.

I always wondered why they disappeared and were never sold again because they were so cool. I had the horrible thought that they probably discovered that the soap caused cancer or something. I was intrigued by one writer who pondered that the fuzz might actually have been mold. But now I'm going into an area that doesn't exactly enhance the wonderful memory of the Fuzzy Wuzzy...!

At any rate, thanks for the walk down memory lane...

I was born in 1963, and some of my earliest memories are visiting my grandmother and being held up to the sink to wash my hands with Fuzzy Wuzzy soap. I was only 3 or 4 years old. I even remember the T.V. commercial…..”Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair”…..until you washed with him to make his fur grow!

I remember my Grandmother “MommyCarroll” reciting the little rhyme to my sisters and I:

Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy Had No Hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy Wasn’t Fuzzy
Was He?

And then, one day we went upstairs for our bath time and there were four little Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear soaps (one for each of us) by the tub. We delighted in those soaps and although I’m now 46, I still remember that bathtub time with my sisters in Shady Side, Maryland. How fun!

Last night, I told my little 8 year old son the story of Fuzzy Wuzzy and that prompted me to go online and try to find those soaps again. It looks like there were many of them in a box sold on eBay to someone…in the original wrappers…but the only thing I could find to purchase was a copycat… fuzzy kitten soap. I ordered it from a retro-website.

Thanks for the memories!

I am so happy to find this Site
I too LOVED the Fuzzy Wuzzy soap.
We lived on Long Island in NY , born 1962
I have such great memories of this soap.
It really did smell so good !
I would love to know if they still make it.
I wonder what the Fuzz REALLY was …. I am guessing Mold ???
I am reminiscing about all the old great toys. Tiffany Taylor doll, her hair was half blond ,half black
The TV shows Speed Racer, Gigantor, Penelope pit stop

Oh the good old days when you could only watch cartoons on Saturday morning….NO CABLE back then

I will now be searching to find this soap

I often think about things from my childhood, like Fuzzy Wuzzy soap & the Barbie Hair Salon, that you could dye Barbie's hair all sorts of colors. I know those things would NEVER be available on store shelves now. It makes me sad. Did those things harm many kids, or are we all too protective in this RECALL age?

Wow!!! I remember all so well Fuzzy Wuzzy Soap.

Well we live in the USA...Rochester NY at the time. And this was mid 60's. My mother bought this soap every week. My brother and I loved this soap!! We would find any excuse to wash our hands throughout the day.

There came the day that we all moved back to Bermuda. Our father was in the military at the time. Bermuda did not have Fuzzy Wuzzy Soap. My brother and I cried! We sure did miss that soap!

Well..maybe it was for the best that we no longer had access to this soap. As an adult I often wondered about the mold that grew on that soap. I'm sure children with allergies or asthma could possibly have had a reaction to the fuzzy growth.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Soap was fun though. Ahhh...childhood memories!

I thought I was the only person in the world who had this soap! I have been asking friends for years if they remember the bear soap that grows hair, and they would look at me as if I was NUTS! So glad to see that I am completely sane!

I most remember the scent of the soap and would love to smell it just one more time. My sister would pick the fur off my soap bear just to make me cry. I did see a poodle for sale on Ebay, but they wanted over seventy bucks for it! Yikes!

Thanks for making my day. I am now going to eat an austronaut food stick along with my Quest cereal and watch H.R. Puffnstuff on my black-and-white television. Gotta love the 70's!

my kids also think i'm nuts. I had a yellow fuzzy wuzzy bear. I was 3 or 4. i had begged my mom for one. I remember it had to go on a windowsill because it needed light to grow--? I snuck into the bathroom and touched the fur once, and it killed the fur on that spot. i think i got yelled at for that! i loved that little plastic hot dog! my mom quickly confiscated it- because kids could choke on it-and hid it in her top bureau drawer where i think it remains to this day. fuzzy wuzzy is one of my favorite and earliest memories. he was magical.

So cool! I've been trying to find out if anyone knows about Fuzzy Wuzzy soap!! Can you still buy it? Anyone know where? I only remember the bear he was a light brown/yellow if I remember right. I loved it. Wish they would bring it back for my kids. Hope they didn't stop making it because it cauzed cnacer or anything...who knows what the active ingredients were?

I remember this so vividly from my childhood. I had a brown bear the first time and washed my hand every chance I could to get to that silly red plastic hotdog. It was so long before I got another that I didn't wash as much in an effort to keep Mr. Fuzzy around for a while!

And no, I don't thing there were any other prizes other than those darn hotdogs!

I loved my Fuzzy Wuzzy soap. I remember getting very impatient waiting for the toy inside. Once I took a butter knife and whittled away until I reached the toy inside. It was a little plastic baby. A total disappointment. I guess you could say Fuzzy Wuzzy soap is a lot like life..a lot of work for not much reward.

I am so happy to know that I am not crazy....at least not yet. I ask other people if they remember this soap, and they look at me like I am nuts. Thanks for the few tips to perhaps locate this soap. I would love my grandkids to have the same endearing memory to pass along in their kids.

Hey Wuzzies, I thought I was a loner also. My dad brought home fuzzy wuzzy soap to my brother and me when we were 5 and 4 years old respectively. We lived in Dayton Ohio....This is the first time I have gotten confirmation that Fuzzy Wuzzy Was.

My wife and I were just giving our kids a bath ages 3 and 4 when I brought up this crazy memory of my childhood about using a soap that grew hair. I told her it was a lion or dog shaped soap that grew fuzz. Five minutes after she laughed at me I produce this site to her after a short internet search and the first thing she said to me was can you still buy it anywhere. Ya right. At least I still have my memories of playing with Hot Wheels, G.I. Joes, what cereal to eat (Quisp or Quake) watching Johnny Quest cartoons and using Fuzzy Wuzzy Soap.

I was a child of divorce and the youngest of the three...when we went to my dad's house I was always kind of scared to leave my home and of course my mommy. One thing I always looked forward to at my daddy's was the fuzzy bear soap and we used to sing, "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he??" :) A good memory. A great idea! Hmmm... thanks!

Being this close to Easter, I was just telling my hubby and daughter about the neatest Easter gift ever ... the year that my Mom (er, I mean the Easter Bunny) put the lamb soap that grew fur into my Easter basket! I liked that better than the Sarris candy that was in my basket! Is there anywhere to buy this soap nowadays?

O.K. I can finally join the lot of you who are NOT insane. I remember very fondly, the Fuzzy Wuzzys and no one I talk to does. This is so cool! I remember it was one good way my mom used to get me to wash my hands. Thanks for the wonderful memory.

I also had a blue fuzzy wuzzy poodle. I remember that the poodle really did grow hair! I looked forward to bathtime with it, Mr. Bubble and Silly Foam.

Nobody I talk to these days believe's me either when I tell them about the "Soap that grew hair"..and the Toy inside !!! I'm glad other's here remember this as fondly as I do.. I recall my mother buying me this in our local supermarket chain.. I begged for a new one each time we went and my old one was no longer growing hair and I had retrieved the toy out of the middle.. ( What a way to get a kid to wash their hands 30 times a day! ) and I only ever seemed to get those plastic red and yellow Hot dogs inside as well... Were there any OTHER toys? Does anyone remember getting anything OTHER than the plastic Hotdog ??
