Wooly Willy, the classic toy invented by James Herzog in 1955, was celebrated earlier this summer at the annual Wooly Willy Wonderdaze festival in Smethport, Pa. After a contest and nationwide search for a Wooly Willy lookalike, Patch Products has named Pennsylvanian Dennis Stromberg as Wooly Willy’s lookalike. Stromberg will receive a custom-made Wooly Willy featuring his very own photograph.
Patch is also offering additional, themed products for Halloween, Easter, and Christmas. For more information on Wooly Willy and other Patch Products, visit patchproducts.com.
