Mini Pet Carrier Keychains
« on: Wednesday 19 April 2017, 03:12 am »
Has anyone seen these keychains before? I think they are puppy in my pocket or maybe a knockoff of littlest petshop, not sure? I remember having them in the 90's and now I'm obsessed with finding them again!

(Scroll through a few pages.) But does anyone know the name of them?

I don't know it, but it is adorable.  Kinda reminds me a bit of the bigger versions you often see for sale on second hand sites where a plush kitty or plush dog comes with and also some things like a water bowl and such.  But this small?  Nope.  Unless it is a keychain that used to come with the bigger sets?

(woo! that's my thread that's been linked)

Just want to say that the cages are only stamped with "made in china" on the bottom, incase that helps in any way. There's no LPS mark or anything.

I think the ones that are big and almost identical, but from LPS, have paw-shaped openings in the cages rather than the hears.

I think these cute cages are more sort of unbranded knock offs, pehaps? We got ours between 1996-1998 I believe, if that helps.

The vintage pet carriers from Puppy In My Pocket looked a little different:
