The Piggles™ are Squiggle, his twin sister Wriggle and their baby brother Giggle, who live in the village of Pigglemere, in the English Lake District. They were created by Alan Dart and Malcolm Bird and first appeared as toys designed by Alan in Woman's Weekly magazine. A short animation, using those toys, is below. Several books about the Piggles are currently in preparation.
