If you input each type of animal on the board's SEARCH function you may be able to find a match for some of them. :)

Hi Anne,

Thanks for the reply, I did have a much bigger collection and managed to identify some of them within the forums pages, these are really the leftovers i've struggled to identify.

Thanks

Pilkington was a glass company in Lancashire . I had a green one of these mice with their sticker on it. Have never seen any reference to the company making them though.
