Boglins® are a series of toy puppets co-created by Tim Clarke, Maureen Trotto, and Larry Mass and distributed by Mattel starting in 1987 and now available by TriAction Toys. They were released to coincide with the “creature craze” started by films such as Ghoulies, Critters, and Gremlins. Boglins® are goblin-themed hand puppets made of flexible rubber that you could make look like they were speaking and having facial expressions. The line consisted of small and large sizes and later in the line they included aquatic, Halloween, and baby themes. The original run went until 1994.
