Fuzzy Felt :: 1980's

"Make amusing pictures with gaily coloured felt shapes!"

Fuzzy Felt were produced by Allan Industries from 1950 onwards and were felt shapes which clung to a fuzzy board for endless picture variations. They reached their height of poplarity in the 1970's and are still going strong today, with old and new sets now produced by John Adams/Toy Broker.

1980's

New sets designed in the 1980's had much more detail to the images on the felt shapes, which were made from a firmer felt. Some sets re-used older themes with new designs, and some were brand new themes. The dates found on the leaflets are when the designs were first released, but not necessarily when each different box design was released. All packaging from the 1980's featured the frog character logo.

The white packaging I have only come across on a leaflet, unlike the packaging on the left which is easer to find.

The white packaging doesn't seem to have had a big run, unlike the left version which is far easier to find.

Fuzzy Felt :: Early Learning Centre

The UK shop Early Learning Centre (ELC) produced a very few licenced Fuzzy Felt sets in the 1980's. I  have no idea how many sets they made as they are very hard to find, and three the four found are unique sets sold only by ELC.

ELC also produced their own version too, not mentioned here.
