Magic Knitting Machines


This is an update of a post I did about
3 years ago on Kentoys

These wonderfully cute knitting machines
 are still hard to find, however, I have had
a little luck in increasing my collection from 4 to 6. 
(Two Grandmas, two Ladies, one Owl and one Duck)
I have still to find the boy, girl, bird and chicken.
I have discovered that they are also known
as Kiddie Dora in Europe and that these
Kiddie Dora came with a 
draw string pouch.
Added - May: I have decided that the bird is
a seagull, I have now seen a larger picture
and see that this bird has goggles as in a diving
seagull and is holding a fish.
So therefore we have an owl, chicken,
duck, and seagull, of the feathered
variety and four humans - girl, boy,
Lady, and Grandma in the set.

Above - this is the label found with the Owl 
knitting machine.

The directions in German - found with the
Owl knitting machine.

The packaging can also vary between those labeled
Magic Knitting Doll or Magic Knitting

Some carry their brand under the left foot -
KENTOYS 1998 and MADE IN CHINA in a circle
under the right foot.  Some carry their brand on their 
inside rim - PATENT PENDING KENTOYS c1998,
and some have PATENT NO. :6276986B1.

My Nitta Crittas collection (by Moose) has also increased
from one to three - 1 cow, 1 frog and 1 duck.

As you can tell, I hate removing any of these from
their original packaging (when they are found in
their packaging) so I try keeping them this way.
The last one I have to find is the pink pig in this set.
The search continues!! .......
