Funny Fringe

I found this guy in a bag of junk at an estate sale today.

With the help of the Vintage Monster Toys Facebook group, I was able to identify him as a "Funny Fringe" character named "Twinge".

Funny Fringes were manufactured by Australian company Rosenhain & Lipmann (R&L) for inserts into Kelloggs Froot Loops cereal around 1970.

R&L were prolific producers of cereal insert premiums for Kellogg's from the 1960's through the 1980's.  For a full list of their premiums, see here.


  1. wow, he's in remarkable shape for being that old, and a cereal freebie, too. of course, now you need to collect the rest...

  2. Very neat! You have a very fun and fascinating blog. :)
