Vintage Clipper Jabba the Hutt Play-Doh Set from the Netherlands

January 20, 2012

Interestingly, there are about as many international versions of the vintage Jabba the Hutt Play-Doh set as there are of the vintage toy playset. This one is from a company called Clipper (aka Clipper BENELUX because it distributed toys in BElgium, the NEtherlands, and LUXembourg). It’s a similar design to the American version of the set, but I find the American version to be a bit more esthetically pleasing.

In particular, I like the back of the American version better, since it includes of some kids with awesome 80s haircuts playing with the set, while this version is rather sterile looking. One reason for this might be that the Clipper set includes instructions in both French and Dutch (fun fact: “gebruiksaanwijzing” means “instructions” in Dutch).

I’m trying to get every version of this set. There’s a German set that is very similar to this one, but with German text on the box. There’s a Canadian version with a silver box, a Palitoy set from England (I think), and a Lili Ledy version from Mexico (down there Play-Doh is known as “Supermasa”). There might be more that I don’t know of as well.
