“From a swampy bog that time forgot… they’re Boglins!”
Boglins were produced by Mattel/Action GT/Ideal in 1986-94 and started life as a series of large, rubbery monster handpuppets with moveable eyes which were sold in “caged” packaging. There were also several smaller versions, miniatures, stickers and various other items as the line grew in populariy.
Boglins were firstly produced by Mattel in 1986 for the US market (which lasted about two years), and then taken over by Action GT and Ideal (also marked Seven Towns) for the UK/Euro market. In 2000-01 the line was reissued by three more UK/Eurp companies (Lansay, Awesome Toys and Vivid Imagination) with a small, new line of toys.
