The recent downturn in the economy has created the opportunity to purchase hard-to find Fisher-Price toys at reasonable prices.

We are somewhat in the "off-season" right now with people who handle things are either traveling or just very busy , so some club business has not been slow to get done. Hopefully we will catch up soon! The December newsletter was mailed out to club members right before Christmas. This is a very special issue - it is dedicated to long-time club member Sandy Rose, who passed away in November We will miss her terribly.
The newsletter shares many memories and photos of Sandy and her family with the club through the years. See the Gabby Goose Newsletter page to see more information about the December newsletter, plus answers to the Adventure People Crossword Puzzle. We received questions concerning a "new toy" by Fisher-Price called the "Happy Hour Playset". This supposed new toy has been circulating on people's social media feeds. This "toy" is designed for preschoolers, and features a pretend bar with pretend beer bottles and pretend bar stools.
People have been wondering if this is real, and some are up-in-arms about the demented morals of society to produce such a toy. Happy to say, "Happy Hour" is a joke!!! A total internet joke made by a very good meme designer. Fisher-Price even had to issue a disclaimer assuring people that this is not a real toy by their company. It is not real. Our club knows it can't be real since no one owns one. If it were real, true collectors would already have 2 - one to play with, and one mint-in-the-box!!
The scale of the box to how large the toy would be also doesn't look right another hint it is fake. A link to an article about the "toy" can be found here. The club had a nice time at Convention last July! The next newsletter will hopefully be completed during the next few weeks. The club is on break right now, but the Facebook groups are very active in chatting!
