Last night we had a unexpected visitor come knocking on our door. With a gift bag in his hands, Jerry, one of our neighbors gave Sophie a "Happy Apple." He told us that these aren't made anymore, and one found in mint condition is valued at about $50.00 (ours in not in mint condition, visible in the picture posted, but still a very nice and thoughtful gift). Jerry doesn't have any family, so he said that he likes to remember other peoples birthday's and give gifts now and again.
It was very kind of him, and now Sophie is a proud owner of a vintage "Happy Apple" toy.
