The Tangles are shown as solid black covered in white flocking, yellow/aqua/orange covered in white flocking, white/right/blue/dark blue covered in white flocking, and solid red covered in white flocking.]
While researching Tangles today on eBay, thanks to our anons asking the right questions at the right time, I found knock-off Tangle Jr Fuzzies.
ETA: New, cheaper listing with ten available! I still probably wouldn’t delay on purchasing these. It might be that, like the GITD Tangles, a whole bunch of purchasing options will shortly appear, but I didn’t want to take that risk.
I will observe that the layer of flocking looks quite thin, especially on the red Tangle in the above photo. But as someone who loves the Tangle Jr Fuzzy, no way could I not buy these, even if they don’t last as long as the branded product.
I paid $12 AUD (first listing, $2.49 USD each) for four, free shipping to my house. I’d pay $12 AUD plus bus fare to buy two of them from Toyworld, and that’s the cheapest place I’ve ever seen them, so while these might have all the other problems we’ve seen in eBay Tangles, it’s probably worth a try for flocking lovers.
