Does anybody know what happened to these toys?

I used to have a couple of Animal Hospital sets and I am trying to find out what happened to them (like when they discontinued and anything else interesting) but I can’t find anything. I have only found a few pictures and all the rest is what people are selling off

What I remember is they was released around the time Animal Hospital was airing on TV and they’d sometimes advertise new releases of the toys on it. The playsets were amazing but the pieces were tiny and got lost easily

I wasn’t sure if this was the best place to ask but worth a shot anyway. The toys may have been just UK only as they seemed to support the RSPCA because they had RSPCA stickers all over them

Thanks for reading! Even if you don’t know anything about the toys, they were pretty amazing anyway

EDIT:
There was pink versions for Bondi Beach released in Australia it seems but still called Animal Hospital

Sorry I don’t know what happened to them, they were cool though! Mine was a slightly different set but I think it was one of these, it came with a first aid kit with tiny band aids that magically cured the little red patches on the animals. And I agree the pieces were very easily lost. I checked the bottom of Oscar the bunny that came with mine but all it says is “M.E.G.” I was hoping for a year or a little more info than just the brand. Hopefully someone else here knows more for you

Thanks for looking! I don’t have any of my animals anymore so I wouldn’t have been able to look.
I had a look for M.E.G. and it seems they did In My Pockets too? That’s pretty interesting

I think those were by RSPCA?? I think one of my childhood friends had some of those.
Or at least called RSPCA. Idk.
EDIT: OH Thats who they supported. Ugh so confusing! I now wonder what happened as well!

They look like a knockoff of playmobile
Nah, too detailed and too much try for realistic looks. Playmobil's stuff is a lot more simplistic and stylized, and the figures have a "building toy" vibe to them.

I’ve only got Oscar and the teeny tiny frog (I miss the hedgehog one though) still the others have somehow disappeared, no problem he sits right on my mantle so I didn’t even have to go looking for him. Oh that’s cool I didn’t know it was the same brand as them :)

Aaha! I found THIS! Looks like they were made by Vivid imaginations.
Oh, thank you!!
The picture looks very different but the information seems all there. If it launched with In My Pockets it must have become more of their focus after those sets were released. Thank you very much for finding this!

I loved my baby cow that came with the hospital set. Now that I’m imagining it all fuzzy, it could very well have been an In My Pocket itself. They must have liked the style and used it for In My Pockets

I’ve lost most of my In My Pockets too. I’ve only got a dog and cat left. I need to find their names. I loved the Jungle ones but they’ve all gone which is a shame

That is a shame, where do all the old toys go? I typed kitty in my pocket checklist on google and got a few images so you might be able to find their names that way

I have no idea where they went. I’d like to know where missing toys go. I’ve had a lot of loved ones suddenly vanish. I can only imagine some of the small ones got thrown out in a clear out though.

The In My Pockets I have left are Mischief the grey cat and I think Freddy the border collie.

I'm glad my mom generally didn't get rid of my toys without my permission. (Except for my poor McDonald's Minty, Shenanigans, and Skywishes:madpony: I loved them so much, I don't know why she did that :cry:. )

I hate to say it, but sometimes moms just have to pare down the belongings. I, personally, always involve my girl and make sure I have her permission.

Sad, hopefully someone else found them and they got a second home.
Hey you found their names :) nice

My mum usually did it saying “you have too many cuddly toys. They’re only going in the loft. They’re not far” but it still made me cry because I can’t get to them and they’re gonna miss me and think I don’t love them anymore
When I do go in the loft I see them all and always say hello just so they know I still love them all

I’ve been needing to do that for a long time, find their names

With missing toys, I always worried more about them being found by somebody who is horrible, doesn’t understand who they are or will get renamed them. Renaming scared little kid me the most because I always named all my toys and somehow remembered all of them. Some of them even got cool made up names:lolpony:

I was always scared someone like Sid from Toy Story would find them!
