Anyone remember these googly eye fluffy things? What they even called! ?

Found 10th Dec 2015
Pic in first post. You still see them sometimes nowadays but they was everywhere in the early to mid 90s, near on every company had their own version of them. Weve always called em "googlys" (however you wanna spell it) . Used to have lots of them but all since gone walk about. Except the 2 in the pic, which managed to sneak into the house...

Cant imagine a company ringing up asking if they could order some of them "fluffy googly eye things with sticky feet". They must have a proper name

They do it just to annoy you X) They're really talking about you via PM

They're known as weepul (also known as a weeple, wuppie, or wuppet)

Seems like they have a lot of names then. Just seemed weird they never seemed to have an official name despite being well known

We called these Gonks when I was young.

Crave attention and interaction, which you just gave them.

Dear God, I'd forgotten about these. I had loads when I was little - usually from some huge pharmaceutical company with questionable ethics which I'd gleefully stick to my bed.

I had lots too, they were always from days out or school trips!

Known as gonks to me also.

These aren't gonks. These are logo bugs. We used to order them for promotional purposes at one of my work places. You chose your logo and had it printed on the tag.

Gonks are those horrible cheap looking furry things you got at funfairs made of the cheapest fake fur stuff, usually lime green with goggly eyes, , that someone posted already. Or gonks from my heyday were little wooden characters usually with a horned helmet or sword or shield, furry hair and beard and often a kilt. eg. img0.etsystatic.com/000…jpg
