looking for a puff the magic dragon toy that would have been manufactured in the late 80s/early 90s. it looked a lot like this:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/VINTAGE-1983-Dakin-Flying-...

but it was white with blue wings, and you could wind it up and it played puff the magic dragon. if you have one to sell (in good condition) or know where to get one, please let me know.

I have one. It is white with pink wings and has the music box built in. Always kept in clear plastic container and is in perfect shape. I would conssider parting with it but they are extremely rare and the price would reflect that.

Hmm...I'm not sure if that's the one. The one I'm looking for had blue wings, I'm pretty sure. Do you have a photo of it? If it IS the one I'm thinking of, I don't mind a high price.

It appears my post didn't fly. To recap, I have two of these. This one is the best. The other one is a tad gray and not as firmly packed but otherwise in good shape but does not have the ear tag. The one in the picture is mint/pristine. My other one I would rate as very good. I am going to put them up on eBay soon. I am not sure of forum rules but if you want to make an offer I will be starting my eBay auction at $200.00 for the one in the picture. Also, if you know these dragons you know they typically had back spines, tongues and a spade tail. The music box version never did. I have collected these for 13 years now and I have only come across 2 of these examples. They are very rare.

It could be that I have remembered wrong, about the colour of the wings. Do you know if there ever WAS one with blue wings? I need one of these as a gift for somebody who used to have one, and lost it, so it has to be exactly the same. If this pink-winged one is how they all were, I'll give you $300 for it right now, avoiding the need for eBay.(I'd just die if I finally found one, and somebody else scooped it while I was at work, or something.)

Hi Joe, I would accept 300.00. I do not know if they came with blue wings. I did some searches yesterday because you piqued my interest as a collector. I could find nothing even about the pink one.

Great! I will take it, then, as I've been hunting this thing for years, and have yet to come upon ANY of them, let alone one with blue wings. Could you let me know your e-mail address, and I can pay by PayPal?

Hi Joe. It looks like my last post was removed. I don't know forum rules so I probably violated one. My email adress is pmcook@isctechsolutions.com. Contact me by email.

Hi Tina

I still have one of the white and pink dragons that plays Puff the Magic Dragon. It is a very nice dragon in good shape and probably a 8-9 on a scale of 10. I'd not say it was gray but it does not have the sparkle of the one I sold. I can send you a picture in the morning. I will entertain an offer for it.

My email is pmcook@isctechsolutions.com.

I DO have a dragon with blue wings that DOES play puff the magic dragon. It is probably only worth $48 because I have played with it since 2001 and it is 2012 now. But because it has so much sentimental value to me, it is worth to me $100.
