A 33 year old mystery solved

In kindergarten (which was 1974), I played with a type of weird toy where the figures all connected, for hours at a time. I've been trying to figure out what they were ever since with no luck, so I just figured they were education toys produced by some anonymous company. Nope, they were produced by Mattel in 1969 and called TOG'L, kind of a weird precursor to the Micronauts. One childhood mystery solved, 1,200 to go......

How weirdly cool! Are the figures bendies or are they jointed?

Good question, I honestly can't remember but I imagine they had some sort of hard plastic construction to them.

I had the set with a weird green pig head, and an orange smiley head. Talk about surreal. I had almost forgotten that I had a set of these. Seems to me that the orange head even had a set of hands that came with it. Didn't one side a block lift up on a hinge? Cool post.

I'll solve one more childhood mystery for you...

You see, when a bee lands on a flower, it picks up some pollen...birds sing a sweet sweet song, and babies are made.
