  1. hi i was wondering if you have ever heard of there being a typo or mis print on the 1991 tyco magic bottle baby box because i have one and the box says ideal but the doll is tyco and all the boxes i find online say tyco where mine says ideal im just hoping you can help me figure this out thanks

    1. Yes, actually TYCO and Ideal merged around that time and several of the toys still had one logo or the other. I actually went to a garage sale of someone who worked there at that time and they said that if Ideal had a contract with a certain toy store, they would get toys with Ideal printed on them and vice versa. I bought several toys from them that were the same toy with Tyco or Ideal printed on them. So, it's not really a misprint as much as it was them trying to keep and fulfil the contracts of both companies.
