Have You Seen Me?

Has anyone seen me or any of my friends?

I am 2 and this is my friend 5

We have many friend's and one of us is missing...
 do you know who it is?

These "My Birthday" figurines are made by a company called SONSCO.  I have had these since I was a little girl.  My Mom used to put them on my brother's and my birthday cake each year.  

I am constantly on a search to find the missing "8" (or any other number).  I frequent Antique stores and flee markets where my eyes are always searching for my friend.  I also check Ebay, where I actually found the number "2" many years ago!!!

Here are a few photos where we've enjoyed our tradition of the "My Birthday" pals...


If anyone has seen these figurines or happen to have any that they would like to sell, please comment with any information.  

Also, please repost this, PIN this or pass it around in any way that may help locate additional numbers.
