REVIEW: Distressed Baby Sperel

Plastic and Plush - 24 August, 2015 - 06:39


It was way back in 2011 when I featured Orion Spellman’s (or Orion Sperelman) Sperel plush in a toy review. At the time, they were touting the “Save The Sperels” campaign…which went something like – “adopt one of these endangered Sperels and give it a good home”.

Well, those original Sperels appear to be entirely adopted out. And the last four years must have been filled with copious amounts of Sperel breeding (there’s no National Geographic footage of this, luckily), as Orion is back with a new line of Baby Sperels.


The Baby Sperel plushie flock #002 consists of baby Sperels with three distinct personality types: Sadness, Distress, and Stubbornness. How can you tell which is which? Well, it’s all in the eyes. But be careful, because sadness and distress look very similar (there is a slight difference, though). We're looking at the Distressed Baby Sperel in this review.


Measuring in at 6-inches in height, the babies are 3-inches shorter than the original. They’re also a little slimmer, as they haven’t hit Sperel puberty. And, of course, the wings are much larger.

Those wings can actually wrap around the Sperel, and there’s a button that will fasten the two wings together. So you have the option of either secure, pupal-like Sperel or his unfurled, bat-like brethren.


My kids actually thought the Sperel plush was supposed to be a bat. It makes sense. The little blue guy with the crazy red hair looks like the lovechild of Skull the Troll (from Scott Kurtz’s PvP), a vampire bat, and a wild-haired troll doll.

All three personality types are available for $20.00 per plush. There are a few other purchasing options, including the Baby Sperel Duo that’s available for $38.00 ($19.00 per). And you can just pick up the entire Trio for $55.00 ($18.33 per).


Also, the plush can stand on its’ own. That’s a plus for plush collectors who like to display their collection with some semblance of order. I’m not judging you if you have an Elliott in E.T. like pile of stuffed animals hidden away in your closet somewhere.

“It’s Pac-Man Time.” - 24 August, 2015 - 05:34
This Pac-Man watch advertisement comes out of the October 1983 issue of Boys’ Life and demonstrates the radical advertising and product design of the eighties. I mean, just look at the watch (and clock!) design in the ad and tell me those minimalistic graphics aren’t awesome. What’s even more fun is that Pac-Man merchandise ( search*) is still available today,... Read more →

Spotted Online – Adventure People Firestar 1 Video Review - 24 August, 2015 - 02:57
After yesterday’s 1980 newspaper ad I went searching for some more info on the Fisher-Price Adventure People Firestar 1 toy. There’s not a lot of info on the toy online, but I did quickly encounter this short (four-minute) video review that was posted earlier this month.

1984 Newspaper Ad: Kenner’s Star Wars Action Figures On Sale - 24 August, 2015 - 02:45
By the Christmas of 1984 the entire Star Wars line was in its final days. With no more movies planned at the time interest was fading, and the success of Transformers in 1984 had me letting Star Wars drop and I know I wasn’t alone. It’s not surprising that the Star Wars toys were on sale in late 1984, but... Read more →
