VINTAGE 1978 Mattel HUG N’ TALK NAPPER the dog

In 1978, Mattel produced a dog named hug n’ talk Napper. He was 13″ long with light brown fur with ears and tail being a darker brown. He has a distinctive patch on his back that is shaped like a daisy. The patch says, “hug me”. When Napper is squeezed he says 6 different phrases: My name is Napper,  I get so lonely,  You’re so good to me,  Ruff ruff rub my tummy,  Im sleepy,  Ruff ruff ruff. Napper does not require batteries; instead he has a record player inside of him. He is like the more familiar pull-string talking toys except instead of a pull-string starting the talking mechanism, a squeeze does.

You can see the distinctive daisy patch on his back

I sold this rare toy for $500.00 on eBay in 2011.
