A couple of otherwise promising toys on eBay seem to be missing a piece or two:
This is the coolest of the CP Little People sets, but the little Indians have been turned into situational vegetarians by the absence of the cooking and meatdrying racks. And with no meat left in the camp, the coyote's run off, too. Unless you're a vegan, it seems a little steep already. [the last complete set went for $42, shipped. Crazy meateaters.]
This is the first toy I've seen from the Y2K dotcom-busted Rumpus in the two months since the company appeared on DT. This particular Gus Gutz dates from 2004 and still has the hangtags. But he has two gall bladders and two pancreases. And he's missing his lungs, kidneys, and spleen. Obviously, as the cash ran out, Rumpus dolls were forced to traffick in their own organs to make the rent. Very sad. Also, it has that over-didactic labeling motif. Very lame.
