Oogi: Stretch that Toy

OogiAs a kid I had the pliable “Stretch Armstrong” toy — and this figure from the Swiss toy company Moluk goes further, literally: the flexible toy is made from stretchy silicone, and has a suction cup head, hands, and feet.

The Oogi can stick to smooth surfaces, and is “irresistibly tactile,” the company says. “Oogis have also been spotted playing in the bathtub, on fridges or mirrors. Oogis are very social beings: They love to touch, embrace, form chains and do crazy acrobatic tricks. Their favorite hobbies are Oogi Yoga, extreme climbing or darting onto windows and other targets.”
