Lots-a-Lots-a-Leggggggs

"The outrageous caterpillar with lots-a-sneakers, lots-a-socks, and lots-a-lots-a-leggggggs!"

Lots-a-Lots-a-Leggggggs was produced by Commonwealth in 1984, and again in 1998. They were colourful, plush caterpillars with a multitude of legs, wearing multi-coloured socks with sneaker-printed feet. In Greece they were produced by El Greco, in Italy by Gig and in France by Ideal. Some are also marked with Hasbro.

They were sold in the UK, US and parts of Europe under varying names:
  • UK & US: Lots-a-Lots-a-Leggggggs
  • France: Mille Pa-Pattttttes
  • Italy: Tante Tante Gambe
  • Greece: Trexalitsa

Original Plush [Single Coloured]

Lots-a-Lots-a-Leggggggs came with varying amounts of legs. Each amount came in various colours and all wore a multi-coloured scarf. There antenna had wire inside to make them stand up, and little plastic balls on the ends. They also all had little red, plastic noses and plastic bum tags.

There were two subtle variations produced, depending on whether they were made in Taiwan or China, which you can see in more detail here.

The original toys came in seven colours: blue, pink, orange, green, yellow, purple, and the much rarer brown. I don't know if all colours were produced at all sizes, but have tried to find as many as I can.
