Help me identify this tub toy.
#1
I did a google search and saw that some others was asking about the same toy from my childhood, but no answer. Here's their fairly accurate descriptions:



"Bath Toy 1983-1986 w/suction cups on hands, feet and bottom of tail:
I am trying very hard to find a bath toy made from 1983-1986. It looked like a dragon/monster/alien and was a cobalt blue or bright blue color. It was made of soft rubber or plastic that was sqeezable. It was positioned in a permanent sitting position and had either pointy ears or horns(1 on each side of head). It has a long tail and was wearing a white,removeable,hooded little robe. It came with a yellow animal/friend that was about the size of a small lemon and had 1 suction cup on 1 end and I think it squirted water. My cousin had one set just like mine except hers was a magenta pink creature/dragon/monster. I have no idea who made these nor can I remember what it was called so I can have a better chance of aquiring one again. Can anyone help me? Thanks"


"Does anyone know what this is called? I so want to try to find another one. It was a bath toy that I had in the 80's(made between 83 and 86). Mine was a cobalt blue color. It looked like a martian or alien that had either pointy ears (1 on each side of its head) or maybe they were horns. He was in a permanent sitting position was all one piece with a tail 2 arms and 2 legs. On the bottom of his tail he had a blue suction cup and 1 suction cup at the end or each arm and foot.He was about 4-5 inches from the bottom of his bum to the top of his head. He was made of a soft squeezable rubber material. He was wearing a white hooded bath robe and came with a yellow animal or alien friend. The yellow animal friend may have squirted water and had only 1 yellow suction cup on 1 end. My cousin had one just like mine, except hers was a magenta pink color with the white bath robe. I can't remember what animal/alien friend that one came with or what color ot was. I really want to try to find one of these things, but I have no idea what they were called or what toy company made them. Anyone?? Anyone??"




To add to this, mine was blue and came with a little Nessie type sea serpent that squirted water. My brother's was orange and I can't remember what the companion/pet was. The main Atlantian mer-characters resembled a sea monkey or the alien from MAC & ME to a degree. Reminiscent of the Smurfs or Snorks.

FYI: I also had the Gilligan's Island floating island tubtoy with all the rubber characters and the SS Minnow. I wonder where those toys ended up...

This almost sounds like Suckerman but not quite.

Shards of crystal, solid marble, copper or bronze sheets ... just about anything, really.

They probably didn't want to be liable for kids chucking them full force into windows.

Yeah, I figured. Just found it funny.

It's like putting a "Don't hit your sibling in the face" warning on the foam Hulk hands packaging. Well, what else are they for?

DARKMITE8:

The bath toy you described is called a Loch Nerf Monster. I had a hard time identifying it as well. I'm only aware of a single picture of it on the whole Internet:
