If you grew up in the 80s’ and 90s’ then you probably remember having a lot of amazing toys to play with. From Transformers to Care Bears there was no shortage of playtime. Well, to celebrate National Puppetry Day I thought it would be fun to talk about one of those toys that have made a scary comeback, and of course, I am talking about the Boglins. First appearing in 1987 these monster-looking puppets came to life in kids’ hands all over the place. But unfortunately, the Boglins disappeared in 1994, but thanks to TriAction Toys these monster puppets are back and scarier than ever. Well, thanks to our friends over at Toynk.com I had a few of these monster puppets come and cause all kinds of mischief at my home.


Originally part of the 1980’s creature craze Boglins have been spotted crawling out of the swampy bog, and back into our hearts. A highly successful top-secret release from TriActionToys in February proved that Boglins are just as popular now as they were back in the day! 

Boglins are hand puppet bog creatures with movable arms and glow-in-the-dark eyes. These fun features encourage imaginative playtime and role-playing games allowing for maximum imagination and creativity. Boglins® moveable arms, mouths, and eyes allow for unlimited realistic expressions that captivate children and adults alike. The puppets are made from premium-quality foam material each 8-inch puppet figure is durable and built to last. 

I quickly learned you could not leave the Boglins unsupervised. Wait, is that my credit card?
King Drool’s friends have arrived.

Each Boglin comes delivered in a prison-like “cage.” Complete with damaged prison cell bars and warning labels, they are ready to break out of their cages at any moment. The newly released Boglins®  from TriAction Toys are based on the three original Boglins®  Drool, Dwork, and Vlobb. They have now become kings and will provide the complete story of the seven blog kingdoms.
