It’s not often that a cartoon character comes out with a new one of his own, but that’s exactly what happened with the giraffe mascot, Wiggly Wiggles, who debuted in the classic cartoon in 1985.
The giraffe is also one of the most iconic cartoons of the modern era, appearing in everything from Super Mario Bros. 2 and Pokemon to Batman, Disney and Pixar, among others.
So why did kids love them so much?
Well, one of them is the fact that Wigglys have the ability to create a bubble around them that prevents them from falling.
That’s why they were so popular in children’s cartoons as well as in movies and even cartoons.
So what’s new?
The new Wiggys have been created to help kids develop stronger muscles and to teach them to be more confident.
They’re also made with a special blend of organic cotton and polyester that helps keep them cool.
They’ve also received a boost in popularity from Disney, who is making a movie out of Wigglies, in which he will be played by Jake Gyllenhaal, who previously starred in The Angry Birds Movie and the upcoming film Captain America: Civil War.
The animation studio also said it will have more Wigglicious merchandising this summer.
It has previously released a number of limited edition plushies, including Wiggliesty T-shirts, a limited edition Wigglier shirt and a limited Wigglestylin costume.
And it’s not just children who are buying them.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, kids and teens have been enjoying the characters too, with many saying they’re more popular than they’ve ever been.
“Wiggly” is one of my favourite cartoons of all time, said 9-year-old Jack.
“I really like how you can feel everything and not feel the pain or fear of a cartoon.”
“They’re just so cute,” said 10-year old Daniel.
“I really love them and it’s just great to see them out there with the world,” said 11-year.
“They’re really popular and everyone wants one.”
