I saw some familiar gross little faces today. Gross, fleshy, and smelly Boglins! If you didn’t have one in the early ’90s, let me tell you … they smelled. It was all part of the appeal. These little puppets allowed for the mouth and eye to articulate.
Toys R Us would have an entire wall of them during the initial release. They’ve since become quite the commodity. I’ve seen them go for over $100 at conventions, and that’s out of the box with signs of wear and tear.
Thankfully, Boglins are back in production again at a reasonable price. The little demons also come in cages, very similar to the originals.
Oh, what’s that? Golden tickets?! Are these Boglins filled with chocolate, and I’ve got to dig through their innards to find the prize? That’s gross. Why would you think that? Please stop it.
Three golden tickets have been hidden within random boxes of Boglins. The three lucky winners will receive the following:
- 30-minute Zoom Call to design a Boglin with creator Tim Clarke
- Customized paint design
- A One-of-A-Kind Boglin signed by Tim Clarke
As far as what you get when ordering a Boglin:
- Ready For Action: This 8-inch action puppet features movable arms and glow-in-the-dark eyes. Made from top-quality foam, this hand puppet is durable and perfect for playtime. Boglins come alive in your hands, with no batteries required.
- Unique Packaging: Delivered in its signature “cage” with bent bars. This makeshift prison crate is barely keeping this monster puppet contained. King Dwork is ready to break out and join your collection.
