1992 - 1995: MAIL ORDER
(Special Offers Collection)

 

1992: Mail Order Pets
1992 / Mail Order Assortment / Special Offers Collection

Note:
Although five different Mail Order Pets were advertised, collectors seem to have only received three of them: the monkey, the gray bunny, and the black & white dog (the turtle and the gray dog were most likely unproduced prototypes). 

A tan monkey was featured in the advertisement, though it was rarely sent out; most collectors who received a monkey found that it was identical to the brown monkey with magenta collar in 1992's Magic Monkeys set.  The gray bunny and black & white puppy seem to be the most commonly received Mail Order Pets.

Strangely enough, LPS collector Lati received the calico cat from 1993's Charming Kittens set when she sent in her Mail Order Pets offer materials.  She shares this interesting memory: "I really really wanted all 5, so even though the offer said you could only get 3, I sent in a ton more proofs of purchase and paw print points than they required, and wrote a letter asking if they would please send me all 5 pets. They actually DID send me 5: The black and white dog, the brown monkey (not the tan one), 2 of the grey bunnies (I gave one to my best friend), and, oddest of all, the calico kitty from the charming kittens set. I didn't realize how weird and cool that was at the time!"
