Upsy Downsys
"Mattel's Happidiculous New World!"
By Euphrates
Upsy Downsys Upys Downsys are another popular offering from Mattel. Made in 1969, each 2 1/2 inch Kiddle-meets-Goofy Grape looking creature came with a playland mat, accessories and a nonsensical nursery-rhyme name. All of the individual mats could be placed together to make an Upsy Downsy Happidiculous world. There were also books sold for each Upsy (right side up) and Downsy (upside down), that described their adventures.

Upsy Downsys and their accessories can be found today for $25 to $50 loose, and as much as $100-$175 for boxed figures and playsets. The books generally sell for $5-$15.
