Did you own a Puggle when you were a kid? Puggles were created by The Lost Forests, an iconic toy brand and chain of magical gift stores from the 80s and 90s.

The Lost Forests hosts parties and special workshops in its party rooms. We are invited to join a toy-making workshop with the head toymaker Bridie, who makes almost all of the toys you’ll see on the shelves!

The kids create their own magical creature for about an hour using similar techniques to what Bridie uses in real life.

Then they take turns to adopt their Puggle/creature officially as they take the pledge ‘not to turn it into Puggle Pie’ and catch it as it whizzes down the slide!
