Li’L Loggers: Rugged Lumberjacks & Their Pet Pals!

Greetings Gooney fans! One of the beloved, yet nearly forgotten lines Kenner released in the early 80’s was a bathtub toy-line companion to the popular Sea Wees line known as Li’l Loggers. Each action figure was packaged with a companion creature and a half cylinder piece of foam that mimicked a log that would carry the characters along the water surface. Our friends over at theFwoosh.com have written an excellent article devoted to this line!
