[Gift Guide] ’80s Toy Returns With Red & Green Holiday Boglins!

The Boglins are back. And they’re cuter than ever!

One of my personal favorite toy lines of all time is the Boglins, monstrous rubber hand puppets that first hit store shelves back in 1987. Created by Tim Clarke and Maureen Trotto, the rubbery bog creatures were released by Mattel, and the icing on the cake is that they came housed inside of boxes made to look like containment cages.

Over the years, Tim Clarke has been keeping the Boglins alive in various different ways, and he just recently launched an independently-released line of what he calls “IMPS,” which are essentially Baby Boglins. Contained in netting, the soft flexible hand puppets are hand-made as close to the originals as Clarke could get.

Clarke also offers up “Boglin Wigglers” finger puppets in his shop, and he’s just unleashed a limited wave of red & green, Christmas-themed Wigglers for the holidays!

For $60, you can grab three red & green holiday Boglin Wigglers, along with a limited edition (of just 100) Boglin art print that has been hand signed by Clarke himself.

Grab them in Clarke’s shop while supplies last.

  • Come on don’t be all PC about it it’s Christmas not Holiday special

    • MODOK

      It also says they’re “red & green, Christmas-themed Wigglers.”

      More importantly, who cares? Are you one of those dudes who protests Starbucks and complains any time a website uses the word “holidays”?

  • Creepshow

    There it is again…”limited edition”.

    Just because garbage is labeled “limited edition”, doesn’t make it less shitty. Nor does it give anyone the right to ask foolish prices for crud. It’s like paying sixty dollars for skee-ball prizes.

    Oh, by the way. I took 6 “limited edition” shits this week. Get them while they last for $75 plus shipping and handling. The perfect holiday gift for all ages!
