Sarah Jane’s Oliver Owl soft toy on eBay

If you’re on the look out for your own Sarah Jane owl toy, you’d do well to have a look on eBay.

These owls crop up from time to time and sell for around £50 to £100 a time, though you need to watch out for the size of the owl as several heights were made.

If you find their price tag a bit rich for your pocket, you could always have a go at making your own, and these listings come with some great detail pictures to work from.

16 inch tall Oliver Owl
1970s Alresford soft toy
SOLD FOR £49.95

As featured in Sarah Janes last episode on Doctor Who, The Hand of Fear. The owl comes in great condition, no holes or tears, just slight bobbling to the felt feet and beak which isnt surprising given its age.

It dates from the mid 1970s. All the photos are of the actual item you are bidding on. Weve shown Oliver from a couple of angles, but there is only one owl. Sarah Jane is seen holding Oliver at the end of the episode Hand of Fear as she returns to Earth

Oliver owl reappeared in the spin off series Sarah Jane adventures when Sarah Jane was going through the Attic in Bannerman Road, in episode two of The Wedding Of Sarah Jane.

The inset images are screen shots from the episode. NB this is not the actual one used in the show, just an exact copy from the same makers!

A really super and unusual bit of Dr Who memorabilia!


12 inch tall Oliver Owl
1970s Alresford Crafts soft toy
SOLD FOR £50.99


You're bidding on an extremely rare vintage “Oliver Owl” plush produced by Alresford Crafts Ltd. In England in the mid seventies. A similar owl was used and seen in the classic E.T Extraterestrial and Doctor Who Tom Baker Episode Hands of Fear held by Sarah Jane Smith in her last appearance on the show. The Owl I’m selling is not the original one used in either film (I don’t think), just an exact original copy.

The owl stands approx 12" high. Very good condition, no rips or damage. The label on the bottom is frayed but the owl itself is fab cond.

I have found some pics on google of him in E.T. And Dr Who.
