Dog Toy - Masterpet, Ruff'N'Tuff, 'Pauline Hanson', circa 1997 Reg. No: HT 752
- Super Latex Ruff 'n' Tuff rubber squeaky toy for dogs, made by Masterpet circa 1997. The toy features a caricature of former One Nation Party leader Pauline Hanson's head. This object graphically illustrates how Hanson polarised the community and the extremity of emotional responses to her as a person and policy maker. This particular rendition of Hanson is particularly vicious but was extremely popular - suppliers consistently sold out of them. Then as the politician's star fell, production ceased.
- Small latex bust in original plastic packaging with cardboard section at top.
