Rub-A-Dub Doggie ~ Large

"Two in the tub is more fun than one!"

Rub-A-Dub Doggie was produced by Ideal from 1981, then Tyco from 1989 (after they acquired Ideal). They were a series of 10 inch dogs to be played with in the bath, an off-shoot of Rub-A-Dub Dolly. There were also smaller 4 inch dogs and a playset for them.

Large Dogs ~ Ideal

There were two different coloured large dogs produced by Ideal.

They had a tag at the back of their collars which was connected to a length of string. When it was pulled the dogs head would shake from side to side just like a real, wet dog.
