Starting in early 1985, the Kenner company and Hallmark Cards manufactured the Hugga Bunch dolls, each of which held a smaller doll called a "huglet" in their arms. During that year, the line generated over US$40 million in sales.
The title characters in the franchise lived in a place called "Huggaland".
