Me and my friend had a couple Zugly's each, and they were our companions wherever we went. Even to school. I think there were 4 or 5 different types maybe? And they came in two different sizes as well.

I got a Zugly for Christmas in 1987. He has blue legs, a pink body and green face. I took him everywhere and dressed him in clothes! I am 26 now and he is still my favourite and most prized possession.

I'm 31 now, and my little son has inherited my Zugly (the one with the green mohawk) and he won't go to sleep without it. :) It used to be in mint condition, since I was so careful with all my toys as a kid. Not anymore, but the important thing is that it makes him happy!

I had a Zugly when i was a kid. Funny thing is that it went every where with me and people used to look at me as if I was an evil child, because i did not play with cute toys...hello i am a boy. I love the A team and still collect Smurfs today. My Zugly still lives on as we speak, my sisters kiddie has inheritat me Zugly and will not go to sleep if he has not got Zugly with him. He is now 4 and says that Zugly scares away the monster in the night. LONG LIVE ZUGLY. Any one know where to get them now. I have tried ebay, but nothing there.

I still have 2 Zugly dolls from the 80s. My first one (the green mohawk) is the one I took everywhere with me. I didn't go anywhere with out. I still have it and will always keep it. The other is a pinkish one and I think it's in my basement with other toys boxed away. LONG LIVE ZUGLYS!!

Hah! That last Zugly pic of him in the grey chair is a picture I took several years ago. My Zugly is still doing fine. I got mine when I was about 2 years old. I think he's the only that I've still got that's been with me that long.

I was given a zugly the day i was born. It was my first toy. Its got a green body yellow arms and feet. a purple head pink ears and pink mohawk with a big green nose. Hes missing both of his eyes. I am 28 now. it is the only toy that has survived all these years I plan on giving it to my kids when they are old enough to have it. I love him and wouldnt part him with for the world.

I've just had to phone my parents after seeing this page, my Zugly was a dog toy when i was there earlier.. still in good nick, but could do with a wash i think.

I am 27, and in the U.S. Army. I received the Zugly w/ the purple body, pink head, and one snaggle tooth when I aprox. 2. I STILL have him today! Matter of fact he is here with me now on my second deployment! He has literally been everywhere w/ me, and I refuse to go anywhere w/ out him! He is my awesome travel buddy/ pillow. And he is the ONLY item that I have listed in my will. He is old, worn out, and has been stitched up several times, but I just can't bear the thought of getting rid of him. I hope to give him to one of my future kids. :D

I am 25 and got my Zugly when I was about 3. He has a purple body and a pickle looking nose. He came with handcuffs and a key. I am searching for another just like it for my daughter who is still an infant. I loved him and took him everywhere! I really believed that they where magical and still kind of believe it to this day. What a wonderful toy! Too bad they dont make them like they used to.....

I am trying (to no avail yet) to find a zugly... it's the one with the purple body and pink head. I had one growing up and it was without my knowing (apparently I had to 'grow up'!)... thrown out by my somewhat evil parents! I would love nothing more than to get another one of him so I can give him onto my new wee niece who I know would love him just as much as I did. Email me at if you happen to be abel to get one or are willing to part with your own!

I got a my Zugly not too long after I was born and I still have it. It's the one with the pink head and purple body. I turn 26 next month and I still love it to death, and no amount of money in the world (not even all of Bill Gates' cash) can separate the two of us. When I die, I plan to get buried with it beside me in my casket.

I am looking at my two Zugly's now. I used to carry mine all over too. He was kinda like a best friend. Still in pretty good shape but i dont think any other stuffed dolls held up like these over the years. I remember finding him on the shelf when i was 4 but cant remember what store it was anyone remember.

I still have 2 zuglys. One with the green Mohawk and the one with one eye. Just yesterday my kids went to a garage sale with their grandma and my 8 year old daughter found one and bought it. I was so excited when I saw it!! She said she knew I would love it, that's why she got it. Now we have 3 zuglys, and I'd love to know how many different ones there are.

My ex-husband has a Zugly that sat next to our bed for 12 years, recently he got into a bad accident (but is slowly recovering) and our children (12,8,4) have decided that since the Zugly is the one thing he has had for 25 years they all NEED one too! My oldest son has had one since he was 4 and I recently found one for my 8 year old. Now all I need is one more for my little girl! If anyone knows where one may be let me know plz! thanx!!

I bought my Zugly in 1987 when i was eleven, a little too old for dolls maybe. Anyway, as a teenager i got rid of all my kids stuff, then in my late twenties I started to look for it again... at flea markets and on the net. I found a lot of stuff i used to have, but not the Zugly. The problem was, I didnt remember it was called Zugly so i didnt know what to search for, i just had this clear picture in my mind of this very colorful little monster doll. Then today I went to my local thrift store, and on a shelf in the kids section, among teddy bears and other stuffed animals a very familiar face grined back to my. The store wanted less than a dollar for it, the condition is great except the chains are missing. Anyway, its great to have it in my Possesion (again)!

Zugly Picklenose's Mum - July 21, 2018 - Report this comment
My husband and his little sister gave a Zugly to their Mum back in the 80s, and she loved him. He was the one with the green body, purple head and long pickle-nose, and he was very well loved by the family. Zugly was taken places and they all had plenty of fun making many happy memories by giving Zugly a cheeky personality and getting him to have adventures. Sadly he was lost, we suspect in hospital when their Mum fell ill. Anyhow we are now keeping Zugly's memory alive with one we found on eBay and we set up his own FaceBook page, Zugly Picklenose, for the benefit of my husband's sister, for laughs. We both have families of our own, grown up now, to be honest, but we are all fond of our Zugly. My advise to anyone looking for a Zugly is to keep an eye on eBay and be patient. All the best x
