Popples :: Books

"Popples can be turned inside out to make children laugh! These soft loveable creatures can be changed from fluffy balls to furry friends...and back again! They're soft, silly and they love to be popped in and out of their pouches!"

Popples were produced by Mattel from 1986-88 and were a large series of plush characters which could be pushed inside it's own pouch to create a furry ball. They became so popular that hoards of accessories were also produced. Popples, like several other toys from the 1980's, have been re-issued a few times. They were firstly re-released in 2001 by Toymax, then again in 2007 by Playmates Toys and yet again by Furyu in 2009.
