Clearing out the attic and look what I found??!! Finders KEYPERS

Hey, as most of my lovely readers are aware I'm flying the nest next week as I am moving into my new pad with my bloke. Going through the attic today I came across this little beauty........my Keypers Fancy Snail by Tonka!! I used to absolutely love it!! 80's retro toy or what?!?

"Far off in a land of magic and fun live the Keypers and the Finders. Keypers keep treasures locked safely inside, while Finders travel about seeking to find! Meet each of the Keypers and their new friends, they have special ways to keep your secret treasures safe."
Keypers were produced by Tonka from 1985 to 1990. They were large, hard plastic bodied adults and small softer plastic bodied babies. The adult Keypers had a key (with their name on) which locked and unlocked a door somewhere about their body, and the baby Keypers had a slit in their backs where you could store things. Along with the plastic toys there were large plush adult Keypers, books, games and other items.
Taken from the The Ghost Of The Doll website vist it here for info on retro toys :)

Can you remember these? Did you have one?
If not what was your childhood favourite toy?
Thanks for reading :)
