Jim Hensen’s Fraggle Rock
Introducing Fraggle Rock to a New Generation
Fraggle Rock is back! The influential crew of muppet-like characters from the brilliant Jim Henson stormed into households across the globe in the mid-Eighties as the first original program on HBO. A generation of boys and girls were mesmerized by the characters, stories and original songs! Advocating themes of friendship, tolerance, diversity and caring for the planet, Fraggle Rock never fails to entertain and excite audiences, while teaching children about the complexities of human life.
Super Impulse and The Jim Henson Company have partnered to bring your favourite characters from Fraggle Rock to life.
I’m VERY excited to introduce you to a new world of Fraggle Rock, with plush characters you can bring home! While I take a minute to get my “fan-girl” excitement to calm down a bit, let us take a minute to enjoy the Fraggle Rock Opening Theme!
As a 40-something, I grew up with Fraggle Rock so these new toys are SUPER exciting for me! Fraggle Rock is one of my favourite childhood shows, and I remember waiting ALL week for it air on CBC (you know, back in the days of limited children’s programming that aired only on certain days and certain times). As an adult, I still enjoy watching the episodes (and singing along to the familiar songs). I own season 1 on DVD (and need to complete my collection as soon as I have the extra money to do so). Certain shows just take me back in time, and Fraggle Rock is one of them.
Fraggle Rock is a fun show for young and old, and a show I have loved introducing my own children to. With 96 episodes, and 100 original songs, it aired around the world and is still relevant today, and timeless in quality.
Fraggle Rock 10″ Plush Characters
Purple haired and level-headed Gobo and the energetic and competitive Red, the leaders of the Fraggle Rock crew, now come in a huggable 10″ sized plush with a pose-able tail. Bring these colourful and furry creatures out of the Fraggle Rock caves and into your home!
I love the details on both the Gobo and Red 10″ Plush Characters. From the crazy, colourful hair to the clothing, everything is exactly right. Red has pink bows in her hair, and Gobo even has a notebook in his vest pocket! The tails are pose-able, allowing both Gobo and Red to sit freely without needing to be propped up or leaned up against the back of a shelf or wall. The crazy hair is soft, and even glimmers in the light.
Fraggle Rock 4″ Plush Backpack Clips
Led by Red and Gobo, the Fraggle critters advocate themes of friendship, tolerance, diversity and caring for the planet, and now they can come with you wherever you go! Perfectly sized 4″ backpack clips will delight and engage a whole new audience who will love to Red and Gobo with them everywhere.
The Gobo and Red 10″ plush characters are currently available to purchase online at ThinkGeek. for $12.99 each.
The Backpack Clips are available at Newbury Comics, Kazoo Toys- GA, Luray Caverns, and Browsabout Books (with more stores coming soon). Recommended retail price for the Backpack Clips are $7.99 each.
