30 Days Of Retro Toys - Day 2 - Popples

Day 2: 

(Magazine ad, 1986)

In the 80s, Transformers were popular, so somebody must've thought, why not extend the whole "transformation" thing to stuffed animals? Popples were animals (aliens?) that could transform/fold up into balls. For throwing around, I guess? The commercials used to highlight the fact that a child could potentially sneak a Popple into school and pass it off as a basketball or something. I wonder if that ever worked? 

The Popples also had their own TV show.

And they're being revived as well.
