The boxes to house these model kits are over 12 inches long. I found all three of these at a church thrift shop in the toy section. These are in the “re-dumping” pile.

Okay, this one makes me laugh a bit as I love the guy and his missing tooth look or is that a space? Is that a tiny, green stage he is standing on?

    WOW!!!… I’m knocked out… I LOVE his “Beatles Boots” … What size shoe do you think the Beach Bunny in the “Silly Surfer” wears???….smile.

      I’m happy to say that Denny re-dumped two of the three kits right into my little lap! A box arrived last week and I can’t tell you how elated I was to open it up and find those in there. The plastic shrink wrap is still perfect so I don’t dare open them. I am, of course, dying to though.

      Thanks so much for that link so I can finally see what these really are. Now I’m more excited than I was before! There were also two complete Silly Surfer Beach Bunnies kits for sale on Ebay. One was $12.95 with Buy It Now and the bidding started on the other one at $99. Go figure. They were both 1990 repro kits of the 1964 originals.

    Thanks for posting the link Nessa. Interesting to see what they look like “out of the box”. I also had no idea these model kits were popular back then.

    I’m glad they are now residing at Willis Wonderland.
