The Keypers were animal/bug shaped toys manufactured by Tonka. They came in shapes like lady bugs, turtles, swans, horses, rabbits, snails, and others. Each Keyper had a compartment that could be used to hide things. The larger Keypers came with keys used to unlock the compartments, while the smaller ones could be squeezed to open their compartments. Each Keyper would also come with a little friend, called a "finder", that was supposed to help the Keyper find lost items.
