what were these called?

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.
