Mattel Toys - Small Boglins (Boglinus minimus): Splat

Mattel Toys - Small Boglins (Boglinus minimus): Splat

Boglins were rubbery hand puppets that resembled small monsters, goblins and aquatic creatures. The Boglins were part of the 'monster creatures' craze during the late nineteen eighties, which included Ghoulies, Critters, Ghostbusters, and Gremlins. Generally, the Boglin puppet was aimed at small children (boys in particular) from eight to eleven, as they were popularly used for frightening others, but have become valuable collectibles in recent years. Their purpose can be summed up fairly accurately with their commercial slogan;

''If you take us home, we'll kiss your Aunt Martha, we'll eat your peas and we hope you know lots of girls.''

They were characterized by their unique packaging (a cardboard box with a plastic 'cage' entrance) and by movable eyes and mouth. Boglins were manufactured by a number of companies including Action GT and Ideal and distributed by Mattel. They became very popular in both the United Kingdom and USA, and their popularity is believed to have reached its peak thanks to a deal with Kellogg's in 1989, to use them in promotions contained in and on, boxes of Rice Krispies cereal, including rubber stampers, stamp collections, cut-out masks and an exclusive set of Mini Boglins.

Boglins were also characterised by their varying 'genus' and unique form, which entailed a pair of arms, no legs, and a flatish body. The cult status of Boglins in the past has been so great that they have made appearances in other media.

This was when corporate boardrooms were places of high action (not bailouts!). These kids mean business--Gordon Gekko, watch out!
