Real Rigadoon?

The first question on Rigadoon Puppet eBay listings is often does he or she have the "Real Rigadoon" mark?

The original four boys and three girls were first sold without this mark by Kidz Biz Pty and Hasbro (1988 Fizgig trademark). Later versions with the same trademark added the embroidered "Real Rigadoon" mark and introduced additional girls.

The original seven Rigadoon characters can be found with and without this added mark. Here is a new girl (in borrowed clothes) with the mark and her friend Alexis with no mark. We love them both.

There is also a third version (1994 Fizgig trademark) where the "Real Rigadoon" mark covers most of the hand. The 1994 Rigadoon we met wasn't very talkative as he had a stiffer face and less room for adult hands to operate him. There are also miniature dolls based on the Rigadoon characters.
