This was a toy made out of a soft and fuzzy material in the shape of a worm. One pulled the invisible string and made him crawl over anything. Came out in the early '70's, about '73. Cute.

In the first grade, I had an orange Squirmel. I really loved it and took it to school. Had it in my pocket for first grade picture day. Have no idea what happened to that little guy.

These were originaly sold on a TV commercial first, before they were sold in stores. I had one and never could get it to work like they did. I think it was the same company that used to sell all those magic tricks gadgets on tv. Maybe it was Ronco.

i had a blue one in 2nd grade and me and my friends were playing with it and a bully threw it in the stream.I climbed over the fence without the teacher seeing me and i grabbed it and it stated falling apart!I couldn't wait till the bell rang so i could tell my mom. I ran home and she gave me the instructions and it said DO NOT GET WET! I got so so so so so mad! but that taught me to read instructions.

I spotted these beauties recently at my walmart. I was in the checkout and they were hanging there on the side of the soda refrigerator, not in the toy section. I had to get the brain thinking back on that one! yes, i did have one of these cute things.

To Bob T....Do you know what a reproduction toy is?? They are from the 70's, and they have brought them back. No one is lying, lol. I don't think I had a real squirmel, I had the tiny fake ones that you could get in a quarter machine, I had several in different colors. I collected them, and loved them so much. :)
