Happynak Series, Made in England Tea set with Mickey Mouse and a Duck that looks like Donald Duck but in a red belted top. Please would you know who the character is ? or did Donald Duck start off wearing red?Am thinking of selling - based in UK.Regards Tricia
►reply: It must be Donald because Happynak didn't use any other characters besides Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck, but I could be wrong. In the beginning of his 'career', Donald wore a red top as you can see for example on this Happynak bucket.
