I am searching for a Jacob's Ladder toy. It consists of three or four blocks, shaped like thick credit cards. These are colored brightly with different colors on each block, and different colors on each side. They are held together with elastic straps that allow them to flip flop when you rotate an end block 180 degrees. Christopher.

I played with Keepers in the late 1980's. The one I had was a medium-sized pink plastic snail with a shell that would twist open, allowing you to hide stuff inside. I believe there were also blue and a mint green ones. Where can I find them?
Where can I find a set of original Kerbangers? Some people also called them Click-Clacks. They were two glass balls on a string with a loop and you clicked them together. They were from the late 1960's or early 1970's.

KIDDEROO FLANNEL BOARD PLAY SET
I am looking for the Kidderoo flannel board play set by Creative Toys. I was able to purchase additional play pieces (foam shapes, letters, and numbers) in sets from a store in Minneapolis. The store closed, and I can't locate this item anywhere. We have had our sets since the late 1980's and mid 1990's, and we need to replace many of the foam pieces. Our pediatric dental office patients will be disappointed if we can't find this anymore; they love playing with the Kidderoo set. Terryl.

LEAP FROG LEARNING PAD
I am searching for a toy that I saw advertised on television. I did not catch the name of the toy or the manufacturer. It is a book with words that the child can scan with some kind of pen. There is an audio output that sounds the words out phonetically. I would appreciate it if you could tell me the name of the toy and the manufacturer. Thank you, Richard
