Monday Memories: Snugglebumms

{via}


Yesterday at brunch with my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and their friends, part of our conversation was about childhood toys. It started with my BIL having a monchichi. I then mentioned that I had this weird toy but I couldn't remember what it was called and I thought that it glowed, sort of like a glow worm. After typing various names in a google search, I finally found an image of Snugglebumms. Does anyone else remember these strange, little creatures? I had the blue one.

These are creepy! They look like a fat and bohemian version of Troll Dolls

i've never seen those! i had a gloworm and i wanted a momchichi so bad but they were expensive so my mom bought me a fake one. it looked like a monchichi but it was called something else and you could only stick its thumbs in the mouth, not the toes.

i still love my little pony, little twin stars and merry melody! when i was a kid i used to go to all those stationary stores and spend hours looking at the pencils, pencil cases, note pads etc of all the characters. i still do that sometimes :p

Yay! You found them. I don't remember these at all. So, did they actually glow?

I still can't over the fact that J. had a monchichi. Too funny.
