Popsies by Pride Creations – circa 1965
These fabulous figurines were produced in Japan for Pride Creations beginning in 1963. With a host of different characters – each with a generally sarcastic message which “popped” out of their heads when they were pushed down – these little guys were gone by the end of the decade.
I located these two beauties today in the mountains of West Virginia. While sightings are rare, they do occur, and are always welcome when they do. Keep your eyes peeled and maybe you can get a glimpse of one yourself.
