Weird, scary faces, a shapeless mass of synthetic fibres for a body, and a token pair of tiny feet… Glooks were unlikely icons of the 1960s and 1970s. Pocket-sized pals you could comb, cuddle or pop on the mantelpiece.
Anyone who frequented fairgrounds or high street toy shops during these decades will remember them, a pocket-sized fad that was foisted on the newly consuming baby boomer generation, and remained in production for almost 15 years.
These strange little goblin-faced collectibles (and pre-cursors, in many ways, to the modern-day Furbie) are fairly hard to come by these days. But this pair are just as bizarre, hairy and unprepossessing as you may remember.
