Here’s one a lot of you have probably never heard of – Ooze-It!This little green guy was created by a family in Metairie, Louisiana, and quickly became their one and only product produced under their “Ooze It Inc.” label.
How it would work was simple.Unscrew the head which came off like a bottle top, pour in the included red syrupy liquid which came packaged with it.After that, simply squeeze it, and watch all the goo come pouring out of the various holes.When done, attach the yellow strand plug to all the holes to keep the remaining goo inside.
It was simplistic, it was gross, and it was fun.
The company never went on to produce anything successful beyond the Ol’ Green Oozy here, and little is known about the group in general. As of this year, the rights to Ooze-It have been purchased by Tokyo toy developer Yoda-san who is producing a larger version of the figure now known as Yusei Majin.
As for the original Ooze-It, it remains one of the rarest toys of the 1980’s.Few are known to exist in their original shrink wrapped packages, and the ones that are can sell for upwards of a thousand dollars.Not bad for a toy that came stamped with a $9.00 price tag on the box.
