Notes: The Mold Book lists A-312A as “Banana” and A-312B as “Banana Bunch.” However, no single banana has been found in the Miniatures line, and the number A-312A was used on order forms for the bunch of bananas. The Bananas were originally glued to the hand of A-312 Mama Chimpanzee, but were also sold as a separate piece in 1979-80.
This piece was originally issued in 1959 in the Little Horribles line as D-392, The Cave. The Little Horribles cave was much more detailed, with a more jagged opening. The mold was revised considerably for the Miniatures line; see comparison photos.
The brown and green colorways were paired with Cavemen A-070, A-071, and A-072. The white Ice Cave was an accessory for Eskimo Tots A-943, A-944, and A-945.
