The year was 1957. Sputnik was launching into space, Leave It To Beaver was a TV favorite and Elvis was rockin' the air waves. All this, while a young man in Detroit, Barry Gordy, took his last $700 to form Motown. R. Dakin & Company began importing electric trains. The early trains were packed with six small (quirky) velveteen stuffed critters whose intended use was to cradle the trains on the long journey. Unexpectedly, these sawdust-filled funsters created more excitement than the trains they were intended to protect. R. Dakin's packing material, Dream Pets - the Original Stuffed Toy - were about to become a cultural icon adored by everyone around the world.
Dream Pets were a phenomenon for over a quarter of a century. Today R. Dakin & Co. is very proud to welcome Dream Pets back into the world and into your hearts. This pet is Bernard. Birthplace:
