    I am the little girl with Pretty Peepers and my name is Linda Leo NOT Belinda! Please amend. Press photos used got my name right.

    I have the toy dog at the end of the film marketed as 'lazy bones'. I have always wanted to know which company made him and whether there are any more in existence. Please let me know if you have any information on this 'creature'!
