Vintage Toy: The Squooshy Rubber Face Finger Puppet!

Photobucket

This is Steve's and I think I recall us calling it Mr. Gaglio.

There are four finger "tubes" on the back of this puppet's head that, with a little dexterity, allow you to twist this guy's face into all sorts of horrid expressions.

Okay, enough of that.

They come in at least four different faces. Here's a selection that was offered on ebay!

I had that same one! I got mine at Party City when I was little. I think I called him Frank.
Kris says he had one when he was a kid! He thinks he won it at Chuck E. Cheese.
I bought that when I was in art school in the early 80's at a store down the street called "Heaven" which was a store that sold pop culture stuff and t-shirts, kinda like a Hot Topic today. He never had a name until I moved to Georgia in 1993 and we started hanging out at a local pizza joint called "Gaglio's" whose owner/namesake looked exactly like this rubber puppet head. Except the real Gaglio wasn't just head. He had a complete body.
Oh geez, I haven't seen those in YEARS. They used to be in those old Spencer's and Funny Side Up catalogs and I think we had some as prizes when our marching band worked a company picnic as a fund raiser.

That one you guys have always reminded me of Sergio Aragones. :)
