Popples.

“I had a dream that I gave birth to a Popple.”

“A taco?”

“No, not a taco; a ‘Popple.'”

“You dreamt you gave birth to a taco?”

This was me and a co-worker earlier tonight at at Daily Grill’s Happy Hour. Aside from the fact that I really can’t stop giggling about the notion of giving birth to tacos, it also dawned on me that perhaps not every child from the ’80s is familiar with this wonderful toy.

As you can see, the Popple is sort of a cross between a kangaroo, a ball, and a teddy bear. A “soft fluffy ball that turns into a friend,” if you will!

Austinites, was I the only one who played with these? Was this some weird toy that only San Antonio kids got?
