i've had this vintage lakeside pokey item for many years, but until recently it looked like this ~
i had the original pokey bitty loose, but whatever child of long ago had extricated it from the card had also taken the special lucky coin with them.. i thought i'd never see one.. until a week ago on ebay, after more than a decade of regularly checking the gumby items, i saw it there!
it was much larger than i'd expected ~
having hosted gumbyland for many years now, i feel a bit like a museum curator just for gumby.. lol in fact holly harman (art clokey & gloria harman's daughter who brought us the new gumby show, & also the voice of minga) once told me that she always thought there should be a gumby museum, & she thinks that gumbyland is it, appropriately a 'virtual museum' ~ (gumby always kept up with the times.. )
lakeside 1967 - made in hong kong ~
