Kangaroo with Joey Collegiate Personality Pet - Zippy, University, Akron, Kasey, Missouri-Kansas City, Katy, Austin College Mascot, VMI, Moe


Shipping to United States: Free

This Personality Pet Collegiate souvenir is a desirable collectible! Momma Roo and little Joey were made during the 1950s with felt (wool) and stuffed with sawdust. Momma Roo has lost her eyes, but Joey glass eyes are still adorable after all these years!

This rare find was likely made for one of the college schools with a kangaroo mascot:

Kasey the Kangaroo - University of Missouri-Kansas City's costumed mascot.
Katy the Kangaroo - Austin College's costumed mascot.
Moe - kangaroo mascot of the VMI Keydets.
Zippy the Kangaroo — female kangaroo mascot of University of Akron

About Collegiate Mfg Co: "Collegiate Manufacturing Company started in 1904 in the sleepy town of Ames and steadily increased in size to become the premier college souvenir manufacturer in America with “more than 150 employees.” At their peak, Collegiate “produced over 2,000 stuffed animals a day, selling to a fifty-state market as well as an overseas market. The silk screen processing department printed as many as 2,500 shirts daily. Personality pets were extremely popular and comparable in many ways to Beanie Babies of just two decades ago. Collegiate’s Personality Pets appear remarkably similar in many respects. To this day, Personality Pets can still be found in online auctions. Some are instantly recognizable, while others have more obscure origins. -- Kagavi.com

Overall, this Kangaroo and her Joey are in good vintage condition. She requires some assistance to stand, as you can see I propped her up in photo #5. None the less, she and her little Joey remain irresistible! There are some small tears in the felt on the tail in a few locations. There's also some wear on the big feet, ears, and nose. Finally, the Kangaroo mommy is missing her glass eyes. Nevertheless, this is still a wonderfully charming collectible. Please see photos for details and use the zoom tool.
