Back to the 90's (part 2): Wacky Worm.

continued from part 1...


It seems like the 90's was only yesterday and yet it's already actively making a comeback!  Movie remakes and TV shows are suddenly resurfacing.  Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place, anyone?  I also noticed trends short of being called faux pas (shoulder pads?!) appearing in runways again.  Imagine my surprise finding a toy which I thought didn't exist anymore.  Remember the Wacky Worm?
demonstrating how the wacky worm works.


The Wacky Worm is a toy slash magic trick wherein a fuzzy worm appears to be following your every beck and call.  To understand more, watch this video.




The secret of the Wacky Worm lies behind a 12 inch invisible string tied around the nose of the toy. Clever, huh?  I remember my sister and I buying all colors! I think my first one was either pink or green.


T was tempted to buy one since it was the first time he'd heard of i.

For those in the Philippines, the toy is being sold at P100/$2 at a store named Clippers.  For those abroad, I've done a search and found it in Amazon and a site called Mr. Fuzzy (though this site sells it $6.. Expensiv-o!).  Ah, it feels good to be a kid during the 90's. The memories!

How about you..  What was your favorite 90's toy?

  1. my favorite was the troll! I collected so many until I realized that they're really not that cute! In fact, they scared me so I threw all of my trolls away. =)

  17. so nice to be with wacky the worm again, hehe. My mom and dad bought me one when i was a kid during the 90's. unfortunately i wasn't that much into magic yet that's why my wacky got lost among the bunch of my toys. Now that i'm back into magic again, i am looking forward in meeting a group of wacky worms out there, hehe, and hopefully buy two or more of it. Good work for Anders Barris for bringing back the wacky magic alive. -ian silverio (09163589209) stay magical...
