Keypers

“Keypers, Keypers, what’s inside those Keypers…”

Oh, those pesky little brothers.

If only there was a way to store your secret things under lock and key. And if only it was SO cute your brother wouldn’t go near it with a ten-foot pole.

Meet Keypers!

Hitting store shelves in 1985, thanks to the fine folks at Tonka, Keypers were a line of girly-colored toys that came with a hidden storage space and, yes, a key.

Sheldon the Turtle, Tango the Ladybug, and Fancy the Snail were quite a hit in the mid-80s, and it’s easy to see why… girls just have more cool stuff to hide than boys, right?

Plus, each Keyper came with its very own Finder (Twist, Footloose, and Nitelite).

And as the years wore on, more and more Keypers flooded the market, including Tabitha the Kitten, Diamond the Horse, and even Belle the Baby Swan.

Take THAT, little brother!

We ♥ Keypers.
