Mister Rogers toys by Ideal

I wasn't much of a Mr Rogers viewer (more of a Mr. Dressup man) but these toys are all kinds of awesome. I really love the attention to detail on them.

Wow. Yeah, those are solid reproductions. Though, Lady Elaine scared the bajezus out of me.

First Anon speaks truly. Lady Elaine was creepy af. If they were making plushies WHY didn't they make Daniel Tiger? He was a natural!

Would have killed to get that trolley as a kid.

My sister had that creepy Lady Elaine puppet and that stuck around the house for way too long....even made it through a couple of moves, IIRC.

That Lady Elaine doll was creepy. Like Man dressed in drag creepy. When that thing came on the show I usually felt like fleeing the room! LOL

Hours of fun pushing a trolley... yeah, that sounds like a hard sell. What I would have killed for at the time was the diorama of Mr. Roger's neighborhood and various vehicles that is shown in the credits sequence. Where was that playset?

I have memories, as a kid, of a vinyl puppet, that may have been of Mr. Rogers.

I remember in the 1970s + 1980s, in the US- sometimes finding this puppet in Christian churches, + in some of the Sunday school rooms of those churches.

It may have been a puppet OF Mr. Rogers, but I'm not sure. [This puppet could've tied into Sunday schools, since 1] F. Rogers was a Christian Clergyman, I think, + 2] the "feel good about you + others" message of Rogers' TV show was well liked by Sunday school teachers.

The puppet was all vinyl + didn't have a movable neck. maybe it had a cloth lining.
The body of the Mr. R puppet was maybe dark blue.
This puppet-Rogers' face was the color of Rogers' real face. The puppet's hair was [painted black], + was just a vinyl/plastic mold of hair.
Puppet-Rogers'/ Rogers-the-puppet's face had sort of a stern, or serious + kind-of-bored, expression on it. Puppet-Roger's face looked kind of like James Garner's face, in the 1960s, TV show, Maverick.
Sorry about the long post, but I wanted to share the data about the puppet that I saw. Cheers. :)
