Beeples and Wurble Tots
« on: Wednesday 12 May 2010, 06:08 am »
Are these somehow related to Chubbles? Ewoks? They are just two images I have saved. I know the names of the toy, but not the maker.

(I don't think that they're in anyway related, but they do both remind me of Ewoks or similar furry creatures).

Think chubbles and beeples were made by the same company. I remember reading about them in an old article in one of my mom's woman's magazines from the 80s.

Yeah, the Beeple definitely looks like a relative of the Chubbles (Toy Fair).

"On Friday, March 07, 1986,  a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for BEEPLE. This trademark is owned by Animal Fair, Inc."

From eBay:

(seller says made by Carousel?)

Also I found out more about the Wurbles:

They're by Cuddle Wit - that's the company that made all those different Holly Hobby look-a-like ragdolls that everyone is always asking about. :)

Hey, I just found one of these today! It's tan colored Beeple and of course in searching to find out about it it brought me back here! It makes exactly the same noise as the Chubbles that I had.

It does say Carousel, not Toy Fair, and I did some close ups of both sides of the tag.
