Blast from the Past

12 May

Another blast from the past – mom’s Glow Worm from childhood.  OMP (oh my piggy)!  How many of you had one of these things growing up?  Mom’s still works!  Do you know I looked at Ebay and they are selling for close to $50.00 now.  Can you believe that?  Whoever thought that a toy that resembled insect larvae and glowed through bioluminescence would ever be so popular?   And you know they were all girls because only adult worm girls glowed.  Did you know that?  Snorts.  Thank goodness mommy *never* throws anything away because they have ‘special’ memories for her.  Heck, who needed a night light back in the day when you this glow in the dark insect to take with you to bed?

    Oh, I had one of these! My son has one of the newer ones, but they look even stranger than the old ones.

      Oh dear – really?! The older ones look pretty strange to this little piggy – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        hee. Yes, they have large anime-looking eyes and different colored body segments. Still the same basic premise, though.

        How scary – snorts. Where do they come up with these toys? That’s what I wanted to know. Someone saw this in a tree and said, “Oh, that would make a cool toy?” XOXO – Bacon

        haha…I wonder that about a lot of toys. I think it reflects what adults want to feel like kids want to do and play with and be. 😉

    I’m not sure if I would close my eyes with that thingy in my bed :o) Maybe to wear a garlick-necklace could be a good idea hahahaha

      For sure brother! I don’t know how mom survived her childhood with that thing loose in the home. Furthermore, I can believe she still has it. She would sacrifice a Cabbage Doll but keep Mr. Worm? Totally weird that human of mine. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorticles. Too funny my friend. Well, I don’t want them in my childhood – 🙂 They are scary looking! I told mommy she had to box that thing back up for some hibernation. XOXO – Bacon

      Exactly. I never looked at a bug and thought, “Oh this will be cute to take to bed at night!”. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh my goodness, the glow worm! I completely forgot about them (how my kids would love them) and now they go for $50?!? If only I had saved mine…

    • PigLove

      05/13/2014 at 10:20 am

      Can you believe that price?! I couldn’t when I looked it up on Ebay. I tell you, mom needs to start expanding more and selling on that Ebay. But of course, that would mean that she needs to “let go”. Snorts. Good luck on that one. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom never had a glow worm but she did watch the cartoon on tv. Mom has also kept a lot of her toys from when she was a little girl – her favourites being her Cabbage Patch Kid and her Pound Puppy, named Pongo. Pongo even went off to varsity with her *BOL*

      That is so cute! Pongo went to varsity – I love it! Mommy had a Cabbage Patch Kid. It’s really comical what happened to it. I’ll have to post about that later – snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
