Slimers are the best!
When I saw the title of the post in my RSS feed I was kind of expecting something more I-don't-know... Maybe I have issues.
In the sixties, weren't these cryptic demonic talismans, trying to tell humankind, that there was an oil crisis up the road apiece, in the early seventies?Or was it just all out mockery?
Is there anywhere online I can buy cool toys like these? PLEASE tell me there is!
I think so, but Mike told me they are very expensive because not many survived the ages of time.
John: What an incredible, tactile memory these pictures produce. Like I said before, I had the weird vulture one (pictured in last wiggler post) and others, but the weird vulture is the only on I can remember for sure. If I remember right, these didn't come packed in a blow-your-brains-out-impossible-to-open plastic casing; but rather were displayed in a kind of multi-pronged tree, hung there all together by the little elastic loop in their heads. They were always displayed near the register of the Cunningham's. Every single kid (and most adults) that passed the display gave one a squish and made a squeal. They even had a petroleum smell. I would have thought all would have dissolved into an oily puddle by now or maybe petrified. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane. Being a kid today must blow. Super high tech but no awesome low tech. Are these from your personal collection? – Mykal
I like the mouse one, looks great!
it's like a robert crumb lsd trip
I have that mermaid, but she's green! I love it!
My grandma has the mouse. Its in very bad condition though. Its almost completely black and dried up.
I have two gallon sized bags full of jigglers from my childhood. Some of them are kind of rough but they are still here. I have dogs and a hippo, some mice, and a kangaroo too. I would have to look at them again to see all what I have. I know that some of them are rare because I haven't seen them anyplace since i got mine back in the 60's.
