perfect! i got it and love it.

as a follow-up, do you know how i could purchase some of the actual toys? i don't even know where i might begin, especially living in the U.S.

the same e-mail contact:) you can buy three inflatable toys: a buffalo, giraffe and elephant, it is a special reedition (no other toys are produced anymore) which are considered much more as rare collectible objects than real toys now. thanks for your interest!
