collectible of the day: MINI Lying Plush Bulldog

MINI Lying Bulldog
This unusual and possibly rare MINI Lying Plush Bulldog was purchased in March 2004 from a MINI dealer.  It has a similar look, with the same MINI collar as the original MINI Plush Bulldog only it lies flat instead of sitting up.

It would seem to be part of the MINI MotoringGear collection, but does not appear in any of the known catalogs.

Please contact us if you know anything about this item.

collectible of the day: Standing Plush Bulldog with Jacket

Standing Plush Bulldog with Jacket
The mascot of the MINI since launch has been the bulldog.  And since then, MINI USA has offered a plush bulldog.  The original standing MINI Plush Bulldog wore just a collar with MINI on it.  For a brief time, circa 2004, there was a lying plush bulldog.  The current standing plush bulldog now sports a red jacket. From the MotoringGear catalog:


Iconic and infinitely huggable MINI mascot stands approximately 10.5″ tall and comes dressed in removable, red track jacket with the MINI wordmark. Polyester fiber/polyurethane foam. Imported.
