Gund Boynton Christmas

Sandra Boynton did several lines for Gund over a few years, beginning in 1992. She did the regular-sized animals, a line of small boxed beanies called "Minimals", a line of Christmas animals and beanies, and a series of dinosaurs - the Boyntosaurs. If you have any of these and can give me text from the tags, please do so! Also, I'm looking for the names of ones that I don't have the names for. I would greatly appreciate it!


Some of Sandra Boynton's animals were dressed up for Christmas. And then there were Pere Noel and the reindeer...

The Minimals were a line of "greeting" plush, in boxes with messages on them. There may have been several different versions of one animal, in different boxes with different messages (and different names). Boxes were about 5" tall; the animals were about 4" tall.
