Collectors note

Runner the Mustelidae was introduced on 24th June 2000.

Originally, Runner had a mean poem in his swing tag, which was later changed to a more “family-friendly” poem. Because of what was written in the mean poem, he is thought to be a mongoose of the family Mustelidae. although he is commonly mistaken for a ferret.

Runner was retired on 11th April 2001.

    I must admit I didn’t know what this animal was, I thought it was a weasel, otter, or ferret, turned out none of the above, very cute with a shiny coat
