does anyone know what were these called?


what were these called?
Originally uploaded by Jeremy Dennis.

I remember, when I was a kid, everyone having them. They came loose from toyshops for a small amount of money or (more usually) out of stockings at christmas. They're hollow, and fit onto the top joint of a child's finger, where they would wiggle most revoltingly. Something-wigglers?

I've been getting rid of lots of things and some of the small and strange ones are being recorded over on my flickr.

When I looked at this picture, I thought it was a real living creature. I thought, "oh my god! Jeremy's found a mutant lizard slug thing in her garden!"

I'm still adjusting...

Weren't they supposed to be pink or green, the plastic things?

Don't think so always. Mine was EXACTLY like that but, as above, I have no idea where it came from or what it was called.

They did come in a bright lurid pink with turquoise bits too I think.

and if I'd found something living that size I think I'd be photographing it from a distance not on hand, eugh
