WOW growing up in San Francisco Bay Area had more pros then cons IMHO. One of the great weekend getaways for us. Very close to home and close to Ocean Beach too. "Kill 2 birds with 1 stone" scenario. I recall going here on a weekly basis with my family. What caught my attention was not the animals but that doo-dad doohickey contraption found everywhere: The Talking Storybook. To operate this you need to buy this cool collectible plastic Elephant shaped key for around $1.00. It came in various colors. Short and long nose variations were made too! If my memory serves me correctly. Again this was the late 1970s to early 1980s. I recall breaking a few keys so our original ones are long gone to the dumps :-( Thank God for eBay and the www. The rest is history!! One of the very few things we cherish passionately.

Who made this? This was from the brainchild of Bruce Sedley. A multi faceted person whom we KIT from time to time and currently resides in Hong Kong. You can learn more about this fascinating person from the website here http://www.sedleyandfriends.com/index.htm

Cleveland Zoo key. I think Bruce Sedley gave this to us. Don't remember!
