Fluffy Surprise :: Single Animals

"Clip me on for fashion fun!"

Fluffy Surprise were produced by Vivid Imaginations in 1998-99. They were a short lived series of animals with feather boa type trims. Each adult character came holding a hoop (through a hole in one of their paws, with a split in the middle to remove it) which could be looped onto things. There were also various babies.

Fluffy Surprise were sold in the UK and other parts of Europe under varying names:

  • UK & parts of Europe: Fluffy Surprise
  • Italy: Fru Fru Lungacoda (Fluffy Long Tail)

"Each Fluffy Surprise comes with a special surprise that you can wear! Fluffy Surprise loves being with you, attach their clips to your purse or to your backpack, and they'll follow you everywhere!"

There were six characters in the 1998 release, and each one came with a surprise accessory inside their bases (accessible via a flap). There was a bear, two cats and two dogs.

The surprise gift was either a friendship bracelet, necklace or hair bobble.

"Five great new Fluffies to collect! Each with hot colours, cool dazzling boa and the sweet scents of oranges, strawberries, lemons, cherries and apples! Each Fluffy also has a secret fashion surprise inside!"

Second release in 1999 saw the addition of a rabbit plus new colours and all were scented. The surprises inside were also new.
