  Yes!!!!! Gotta have a Firffels page on this site. I love poseable FIRFFELS! I display them right next to my Wuzzles & Care Bears poseables. I still need Fird & Bertle yet. I just noticed my poseable Elephonkey has white hair & eye "shadow" instead of the magenta color on the others pictured. Wonder if it is a variant?

Nifty! :) I had a little poseable figure of the Dicken(chicken/dog) when I was a kid, but never knew what he was until recently.

Hey, you collectors -- Fird's back.

http://www.whoeverheardofafird.com/index.html

Not sure why they'd need new illustrations... I remember the original one having wonderful illustrations. I guess she probably didn't have the rights to them, though. It looks like the Firffels line went under with no reasonable explanation.

Yeah, and that's truly a shame, especially with all of the other '80s franchises(Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony et al.) coming back. :( Honestly, it would only be fair to keep the Firffels memory alive, too! The new book's illustrations are very good(especially the very sweet picture of the Fird hugging Snyder Spider. Aww! :)), though, and several of the Firfels in the book, such as the panda/duck(Who I just found out is called a Panduck), the rhino/raccoon, and the cat/butterfly are mighty nifty!(Wouldn't plushies and/or poseable figures of them be just SO cool?)

BTW, I found a very cute Firffels commercial on Youtube:

I just saw a listing for these guys on ebay - had never seen them before! - so I came straight over to GoTD to see if they'd been mentioned. :)

Remco's answer to Wuzzles, were they? I collect poseables but I don't think I'll be adding these guys to my Want list.  :D

The plushes are definitely cuter.

Here's where I saw them:
