Title: Magic Diaper Babies Around the World
Post by: Eilonwe on Sunday 02 May 2010, 10:15 pm
I just got these guys in the mail a couple days ago. I've had the Alaskan one for years and I found the Scottish one from an eBay seller and bought him...only to discover the same seller then listed all the others separately and then a complete set! I'm a sucker for "world" themes and bought the collection.

I don't usually like baby toys, but I love these little guys and wanted to share them with you all!

Cute!  I love the around the world theme too :)

Magic Diaper Babies in general have always bugged me just a little bit though... I have never been a fan of the exhibitionist low hanging diaper look :P

Sorry to bump an old thread but I have some of these to sell so was looking for price guide and came across your photos - mine are different! They have coloured diapers... any thoughts as to why?

Huh! That's weird. The whole point of the "Magic Diaper" line was to have the white diapers which changed to pink or blue in water, so you could find out if your toy was a boy or a girl.

maybe these were a different set???  or perhaps a repaint or just the plastic aging?

Nah it's not the plastic aging. The colour is uniform and bright. If it was ageing it'd be more blotchy and dull and probably be a nasty colour. They're prob. fakies.

I agree. But no shame in that! Fakies are just another fun thing for the die hard collectors to collect! :)
(I would think, anyway. The copyright holders would probably disagree, haha).

If they're fakies, then they're EPIC. Because they look exactly like my set except for the diaper colors. Maybe these were made with the colored diapers in other countries or something. I don't think they can be fakes because they're just too close to the originals.

Weird. These definitely have white diapers:

Baby Face/Mel Birnkrant seem to have quite a following.

This is the creator's youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/BIRNKRANT

I wonder if you can reach him through there?
