|The pictures show a top and bottom view of this 1967 Rubber Uglies #11 Florence Gum Ball Machine Toy Prize Character Creature Figure. The figure is not dated but it is known that it was made in 1967. It is marked ''Made In Hong Kong'' on the bottom of the tongue. Some people call these figures ''Jigglers'' or ''Squishy Rubber''. They were sold in 1960s gum ball machines and in stores out of an advertising display box.|
Rubber Uglies are painted in a variety of colors. This one is made of a soft beige or tan rubber with painted blue markings on the top, black eyes, and white teeth. This Florence #11 Rubber Ugly figure measures about 4'' wide. It appears to be in mint condition as pictured. Below here is some additional information, courtesy of Eureka Gumball Charm Nirvana:
A ''Rubber Ugly'' was a little rubber creature that was both a dime store countertop toy and gumball machine toy in the year 1967. The look of them was modeled after a series of trading card stickers put out by the Topps Trading Card company in 1965 called ''Ugly Stickers''. The original 1965 set consisted of 44 ''Ugly Stickers'' that were designed by 3 artists. (10) of them were designed by Basil Wolverton, (17) by Wally Wood and (17) by Norman Saunders. However after the designs were approved, all (44) paintings of the creatures were painted by just Norman Saunders. To date, I've never come across all 44 different ''Rubber Uglies'', just many variations of about 21 of the ''Ugly Sticker'' designs.
