I'm not sure they were popular in the USA as well, but they wereAmerican. It was a family of hairy creatures that lived in the woods: the twoparents would glow in the dark as you hug them, all the different colouredkids made snuggles from their bums as you shaked them.

I have the parents (pink and blue) and 1 lavender kid along with their matching brushes. I believe the parents still glow if you put batteries in them. Very strange, but cute toys.

I used to have quite a collection of little giggling ones and the glowing parents, but I sold them at a school table top sale at the end of the 80s! I'm amazed we don't see any on ebay and I can't understand why there's no info online about them considering how collectable other 80s toys like My Little Ponies are becoming.

I have a snuggle bum, anyone interested in buying? I also have an original my little pony Blue Belle from 1982 when Habro first started producing these

I have the pink one! But mine has much shorter pink hair, not like in the picture. I might sell it... Never thought about it before...

I found one the other day while cleaning up the attic a bit. And I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was called. I've only got an orange one though, too bad. I remember my cousins having one too so I guess they were big for a while here in Belgium.

I had the pink and blue glowing parents, an orange, a blue and a purple baby. Unfortunately, they got lost when I moved house a few years ago. My babies still squeaked when you shook them. I even remember my mum painted a huge mural of them in my bedroom. No one knows what I'm talking about when I mention Snugglebums, but they were one of the best things about the 80's!

Oh Gosh I was looking for someone else who remembered these childhood favorites. I had the blue one and my sister had the pink one. My brother Michael got them for us when he came back from duty in Germany. They were my favorite childhood toy--I loved the way they glowed in the dark when you snuggled them :)

I have two - a lilac one (I think!) and a bigger, purple princess one with brushable hair, skirt and crown - she may have had a wand to, can't remember. They are still in my parent's loft. Is there really a collector's market for these?

Hi i am looking to expand my collection of snuggle bums if anyone is looking to sell one please email me on

I had a pink one and my brother had a green one. They looked a little different than the picture, though. I always thought that I just had cheap parents that didn't have the money to shell out for a Glow Worm. I didn't realize these were a hot European toy. I have no idea where they would have gotten them at the time because we lived out in the country in Tennessee.

I had a blue one that glowed when you squeezed it. It was my favourite toy! Not many people seem to remember them though

i have a snuggel bum sat in fron tof me right now - the yellow one what ever her name is - my sister had a purple one - remember they came with their own little comb, but nothing much more than that. I have 2 young sons and they absolutely love her to pieces and my wuzzle (hoppo) funny how all my toys they want to be educated on now - trips down memory lane for me i guess

I still have the purple one (it sits on my TV), and yes it still sounds like an angry guinea pig when you shake it!! Have no idea when I got it, but I know I must have been small cos I remember my brother trying to chew on it as a baby in 1987! This site is so cool :)

I will shortly be picking up my old toys from my Mum's house from my 80's childhood. This will include a collection of Snugglebums and other dolls such as Strawberry shortcake dolls. If anyone is interested in buying them you can contact me at and put 80's toys in the subject line. Thanks!

You can find Snugglebumms on ebay - they're snugglebumms (not snugglebums!)
Meagan - February 06, 2012 - Report this comment
My family got them in Germany as well. we always knew them as knufflebumps. NOt sure if the spelling is correct but maybe that was the German translation. I was so happy to see them listed so I could show my husband. My mother saved the original books that came with them in our scrap books. The one blue boy was leipchein at least in the German. Ours made funny noises. I didnt even know they had ones that lit up!!!
