Blurp Balls and a sad story



Story time! I had Croaky Bugchuck from this set and loved him, but one day we were snowed in, the toilet backed´╗┐ up and there was no plunger. My parents saw him and spent hours talking me into letting them use him as a makeshift plunger to unclog the toilet, promising to buy me a new one. It did work and it was desperately needed, but parents never seem to understand how toys are only temporarily produced and sold. I never saw another blurp ball again. I still have Croaky's fly, though, and treasure the dumb little thing as one of the neatest looking little bug toys in my collection.
