what were they about?
Garbage Pail Kids
There's a life-size one in my local toyshop. Horrifying.
so there's probably a taxidermy section somewhere.
The last time I could tell you an accurate inventory of my local toy shop was circa 1996
Now answer the question
my pet monster
"My Pet Monster is a plush doll first produced by American Greetings in 1986. ... with brightly colored fur and unorthodox names like Gwonk, Wogster and Rark."
quite want to watch this tho
"It spawned a live-action direct to video film in 1986 about a boy who becomes the Pet Monster after being exposed to a statue and changes Incredible Hulk-style when hunger strikes, how a man tries to kidnap him for experimentation, and how his sister helps her brother out of this crisis."
Those were the days*...
big fan of him
cause i know you guys care about things liek that
best toy ever!
Seems like the kind of basic toy that should have been popular in the 1950s, so it may have just been a thing in NZ in the 1980s long after everyone else had forgotten about it
I LOVED THESE FUCKERS
someone should invent a toy/animal that's that good
Little plastic monsters you flick at each other in a poorly-thought out and seemingly unsuccessful playground collectible successor to Pogs.
How about Stupid Smile Stickers with the free stick of gum?
Never actually had one, looked awesome on the telly. Basically Pokemon but with barcodes. Was probably incredibly shit.
Got well into them, was a pretty cheap think to collect really. About 50p each.
when you turn it upside down.
WHAT WERE THEY?
Wobble but they don't fall down.
What a shit concept for a toy.
