Jumping Frog

Post by babington »

Does anyone know if there is a decent photo of the Dandy No. 2 jumping frog free gift on the web, or could post one? Compal auctions has a tiny picture but it's hard to see any details. I'm trying to find out where the frogs were made!

thanks!

This is the only picture of it that I have come across. It looks like it lost part of its right leg in battle at some stage.

I haven't got an underbelly shot of it, so I cannot see where it was made.

Phil Shrimpton has a great couple of photos of one (Top and Under-sides) in his "Jump Froggy Jump" section of his `Dandy and Beano` collectors newsletter No 3 Worth checking out.
