A Wappy makes you happy
It was in 1999-2000 : a hype of a new bringer of good luck, an amulet : the Wappy. What is it ? Spector ( photography business) called it a Chinese ladybird and it grew out to a popular guardian angel … for as long as it lasted. You could buy it and give it ( a way to bring your friends and family luckiness ;-) but you could also get it in return for a coupon or as a gift with a certain product. There were Wappy’s decorated with dots, Christmas trees, hearts, stars, … How international was it ? Was there a stars and stripes Wappy ?
Picture : it was a dark autumn day yesterday but some just washed cuddly toys ( on the left : a Wappy) , drying on the heating, make it cozy.
