Mid to late 80s or early 90s ID needed
« on: Tuesday 22 December 2020, 03:41 pm »
Hi all, does anyone remember a ball, solid while holding but with fur and a ringer/bell inside.. it had bat-like ears made of felt, and little dangling felt legs? When you throw and catch with it, it would ring, like a pleasant rattle. I had two in the past, one was yellow and purple the other was black and red. I cannot remember what they were called and no one I speak to seems to remember them.

Furby was mentioned once, but these were around before Furbies, and apart from the bat-like ear shape, was nothing like them.

I doubt this is right but maybe the Gremlins movie 1 or 2 toys?
I had one that made tingling bell noises.

Hmm, no, I doubt it, these ones had no arms or even a face as far as I remember, just little beady eyes. It was pretty much a ball with bat-like ears and little dangling legs. It was mid-size, enough to fit comfortably into the palms of our hands.
The ringing also seemed to make it vibrate a little.
