(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?
