Fraggle RockIf you were a kid growing up in the ’80’s and were lucky enough to have HBO in the USA then you’re very familiar with Red and Gobo from Fraggle Rock. These lovable muppet characters created by Jim Henson danced their cares away and worry’s for another day down at Fraggle Rock where they lived. But, what have these furry creatures been up to since then?

Uncle Travelling Matt was the explorer of Fraggle Rock. Visiting places around the world and sending back postcards for Red, Gobo, Wembley, Moker and Boober to read. But, things have changed since then as we caught up with Red and Gobo as they were on their own adventure, vacationing in Fire Island, NY.

Gobo and Red were happy to share that they are back for all their fans who loved and adored them and for new fans from the younger generation who will learn about Fraggle Rock from their parents.

Purple haired and level-headed Gobo and the energetic and competitive Red, the leaders of the Fraggle Rock crew, now come in a huggable 10” sized plush with a pose-able tail.

You can see the details down to the tails that make these lovely creatures a must have for doll collectors like you and me who appreciate classic toys.

Your little ones will love them too. They are plush and soft and perfect for children ages 3 and over. Bring these colorful and furry creatures out of the Fraggle Rock caves and into your home or onto the playground to slide down the slide and ride the swings.

You’ll also be happy to know that they are still dancing their cares away as you can see in the photos they were having a blast posing for the cameras.

You can get your very own Red and Gobo to create your own adventures at Amazon, Target, Toys”R”Us and wherever else cool toys are sold!

Now let’s finish checking out Red and Gobo’s Fraggle Rock Vacation on Fire Island

I received Red and Gobo from Super Impulse Toys for review on my blog. However all thoughts are mine and the awesome vacation photos were also taken by me.

    Such great pictures with these iconic toys. I haven’t seen Fraggle Rock in forever. But I definitely remember them. Ah what takes you back.

  • Oh my goodness how awesome are they, I don’t remember a huge amount about Fraggle Rock as a show but it one of those names that has stuck in my head.

  • Maro Akamatra

    This is cuteness overload! You took me years back with these! I know my daughter would love to play with them!

    I have not seen Fraggle Rock for ages. I love them all and they made my childhood great. I would love to get Boober!

  • Tonya Wilhelm

    LOL These photos are hilarious! I didn’t realize Fraggle Rock was still around. That’s awesome. I grew up with them!

  • Fraggle Rock is not popular in our country although those toys look so cute on your photos. Red and Gobo are making me jealous of the beach!

  • My daughter was obsessed with rubber ducks as a toddler. Now I carry a rubber duck and take photos whenever we travel.

  • Aww loved this! I don’t remember them but they do look familiar. I love this idea to take picutres of them everywhere you go, I might start doing this with my sons favourite character

  • fashion-mommy

    I saw this on your insta and loved it. I was a huge fan of Fraggle Rock and Red was definitely my favourite,

  • Jessica Lynn Martin

    I think I am a little young to have watched Fraggle Rock. That, or I wasn’t into it. This is a cute post of the characters on vacation. They seemed to have enjoyed their vacation with you!

  • Pooja Mumsandbabies

    I actually don’t remember these Fraggle rock but surely If I will show it to my kids they will be super excited.

  • Sondra Barker

    Looks like they had a perfect day. I loved these photos they made me laugh.

  • Simply Tori

    How crazy is this? My coworkers were just telling me about Fraggle Rock and swearing that the theme song to the show was super awesome. I’m too young to have ever seen the show, but if it’s anything like your post about them taking a vacation, i think I’d like it.

  • Olujorby Chemqueen

    It’s been long I set my eyes on fraggie rock toys. They are really classic toys children would love to have.

  • Amanda Love

    Awesome toys! It’s been a long time since I saw these and it made me a little nostalgic. It would be nice to give these as gifts!

  • Clarinda Santiago

    Cute toys! I wonder where can i buy those. Would love to give it to my kids and to my friends who are always kids-at-heart.

  • I now have the Fraggle Rock theme tune in my head! I loved that show as a kid growing up in Canada! LOVE these toys!

  • Nancy

    Ahhh the 80´s… down memory lane I go. Red and gobo remind me of muppet show and miss piggy and kermit the frog. time flies1

  • I remember those two quite well. It is really wonderful to read that they are making a comeback. The photos and stories you shared are adorable.

  • I loved watching Fraggle Rock when I was a kid! I can still hear the theme song in my head 🙂
