Germs by xkappax Germs by xkappax
When I was in about 5th grade, I found some toys called "Germs" on clearance at a local factory mall. I always liked weird monster toys. These were no exception. They were made by World of Wonder, which I believe is the same company that made Teddy Ruxpin. I ended up eventually finding them all at various dollar stores in my area, and I played with them all the time. Being a kid, I didn't use their actual names. I renamed them and started writing these really horribly drawn comics about them.  Their names were Bubble (orange one in the middle), Blinky (pink), Tickle (blue flower looking thing), Button (orange and red), Yog (purple and green yawning guy), Muggywumpus (purple and green guy with big feet), Hic and Up (blue and pink), Globulus (orange old looking guy), Neon (yellow and pink), Atchey (green and orange), Hackey (green and pink) and Prickle (blue, green and purple).

I still have them, I still refer to them as the names I gave them as a kid, and I still really don't know their actual names. :P I know that I loved them as a kid and I used to write really stupid comics about them.

Did any of you have these Germ figures growing up? If so, leave a note in the comments. I'd love to know if anyone else liked these as much as I did.

:XD: I remember playing with these toys when I was a kid. I do remember the name Germs. I had some but I can't remember which ones I had. But LOL brings back memories. Didn't they come in a test tube? I do remember taking them out of test tubs. I had fun with them. ;3 Cool pic of the Germs group.

Thank you! ^_^ And yeah, they did come in little test tubes! I lost most of the test tubes, I think I might still have one left.

I remember these! I didn't have any of my own, but I would play with them with other people. I don't remember them having names or naming them though.

I remember we used to dive for them in my pool. They were perfect for that because they were colorful, so you could find them easily. I'm so happy someone else played with these.

I was always naming stuff when I was a kid (and now, lol!) I had this big long story associated with them. I still remember some of it. :P I was weird. I think their actual names were REALLY long. Way too long for a kid to remember. :P
