    Do You Remember Puggles And The Lost Forests?

    OMGOMGOMGOMG PUGGLES.

    Can we all take a moment to reminiscence about the iconic, but very much non-existent The Lost Forests?

    The Lost Forests

    The Lost Forests were a chain of magical gift stores, located around Australia, and they were goddamn wonderful.

    With the constant rainforest soundtrack playing in the background, it was the best part of going shopping with your parents.

    LOOK AT THIS AMAZING WORLD!

    What's that you say? A PUGGLE, of course.

    The puggles came in all different colours and sizes with a pouch for carrying.

    And the little ones arrived in a nappy. Nawwww.

    And the best part of buying a puggle involved catching it in a bag as it slide down a slide.

    Then there were the Gigalot possums.

    They lived for Lipton tea and loved having their tails pulled.

    Those worms hanging from the trees are actually Squirm Worms and were the perfect childhood bookmark.

    Speaking of bookmarks, you always needed a Squirm Worm to use when reading about puggles, uggles, fruggles, struggles and gigalots.

    And who could forget the Flying Pigs hanging from the ceiling?

    For now, a rare puggle sighting on Instagram is all we have left.

    Only time will tell if we will ever get that childlike joy of catching a puggle once more.
