I remember my grandparents having one of these, I thought it was cool- it was probably the very first toy I had seen that looked almost exactly like the character it was modeled after- meaning that not only was the sculpting a perfect match but the material he was made out of totally looked like whatever clay material the real pillsbury doughboy was actually made of. I think the high quality really raised my expectations on what toys could be.Though I did think it was odd that the Pillsbury logo that should have been on his hat was just a solid blue circle.
I had one, too. No clue whatever happened to it, though.
Still have mine as well.. don't recall where it came from but it's still among the things I kept from my childhood.
Mine is on a shelf over my stove overseeing my culinary mistakes. He's so judgey......
There was also a female version of the doughboy, who wore a bonnet. We had both when I was younger, wish we still did.
