I've been on a nostalgia kick (mostly for my blog) for cheapo dimestore/vending/gumball/party-favor oddities from my childhood. Monster finger puppets, MUSCLE wrestlers, Wacky Wallwalkers, Squirmles, etc. I vaguely remember some odd rubber critter that looked straight from the planet Koozebane or a D&D monster manual. Like a creepy-crawling rubber elephant with a long nose and tail, but no ears? Various shapes, colors, etc.
Very much like these
, without the windup action. Anyone have any info on this crappy little beast? What they were called, where to find them? I've done a million ebay searches.
I'm going to have to get my Mom to ship me my old toybox from the attic. Going on memory alone sucks.
EDIT: I've got to get ahold of these lil POCKET MONSTER bastards
