Wooly Willy was born in Smethport, PA in 1955. James Herzog created him from magnetic dust on the factory floor. At first, Wooly Willy was not very popular, but he soon charmed the population and became one of the top 40 toys in the period of 1950?1980. His popularity rose because of his affordable price, ease of use and novel play. You simply use the magnetic wand and you can move magnetic dust up to his face and make Wooly Willy look how-ever you wish. It?s fun, and it?s clever!
Now Wooly Willy and friends are fun stocking stuffers for kids, and nostalgic collectibles for adults!
