Ikea Bear

It's been quite awhile since I last updated. I've been sharing most of these on Instagram. Anywho, here is a bear wearing a David the Gnome hat from Ikea.

This ghost is from a Kinder surprise egg set named Fantasmini from 2001. His name is Joe Skate (Jo Skettino) and he glows in the dark. It's hard to say if he is goofy or regular, but with no feet it might not matter. There have been a lot of undead skeletal skaters (and a vampire) on BPA but this is the first ghost.

Handy Manny

This Handy Manny figure has to be the only figure that comes with a broken skateboard. I guess he can fix anything. The figure and board are were included with a workshop playset from 2009. You'd think this might be a ramp building playset but it is not.

Stuart Little II

As mentioned last week, Stuart Little returns to BPA in a loop toy practically identical to last post's Johnny Test toy. Stuart's last appearance was a figure from 2003 promoting Stuart Little 2. This toy is also from 2003, this time from Hardees. As wheels on the bottom of the toy turn it turns a band in the middle causing Stuart to complete the loop. Unlike Johnny Test, Stuart is actually standing on his board and grabbing stink bug.

Johnny Test

Johnny Test is the titular character from a cartoon that debuted in 2005 on the WB. It ended up on Cartoon Network after a few years and ran until 2014. This toy is from 2010 and came with Hardees kids meals. It features Johnny more or less sitting on a block attached to a skateboard. As the entire toy moves a band in the middle revolves Johnny around the fullpipe. This is based on an almost identical toy from Hardees featuring Stuart Little (to appear on BPA next time!).

Zag is half of the puppet duo Zig and Zag, characters that appeared on a few shows from the late '80s through the present including the Big Breakfast on Channel 4 in the UK. They also eventually got their own animated show (to debut in 2016). According to an Angelfire website that cataloged Big Breakfast merchandise this figure is from 1995.
