I have a confession to make. When I was a little boy I loved the Popples! I can’t confirm this 100% but I’m pretty sure I made my parents stop at every single department store we ever passed so that we could go in to see if they had any new Popples in stock. I know for a fact that I brought my blue & purple Popple everywhere I went and didn’t care what anyone thought about it.
That said, the news that Netflix has developed an original Popples series has me genuinely excited as it means that I get to push more of my youth on my children! For the rest of my Popple-loving friends, mark October 30th on your calendar as that’s when Netflix will debut 26 half-hour episodes for your Poppling enjoyment!
Assuming this reboot also means that we’ll be seeing new Popples in the toy stores, I’m not sure who is going to be more excited about this between my kids and I. I will also neither confirm, nor deny that I have been on eBay all morning trying to find my old blue & purple Popple friend. For the kids, of course… Here’s a clip of the new show!
