Boglins® are back in their original size and cages, but they have evolved! Boglins® were extremely popular in the U.S. between 1987 – 1989, after which these creepy and cute puppets traveled around Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia for another 7 years but have been hiding ever since. Now the Boglins® are back with newly evolved styles and ready to burst pout of their cages!
We’re a backer! At this it’s 640% funded with $160,058.
I emailed them after we saw this and here’s what Chris had to say –
“We at TriAction Toys are thrilled to be partneredf with Surge and Mark Freedman along with Tim Clarke, Maureen Trotto and 7 Towns to bring Boglins back to market in their original packaging and form, slightly evolved! The kickstarter is closing in on $85k and really letting retail partners around the World know there is a serious audience for Boglins 2.0!”
