Desperately Seeking Freezy Freakies

Ahhhh, freezy freakies. Or were they freaky freezies? I am re-obsessed with them, because I'm cutting a spot for I Love the 80s 3D featuring the always-lovely-and-awesome Rachael Harris proclaiming, "I love my freezy freakies!" And I loved MY freezy freakies! And I want a pair SO FUCKING BADLY. Like, a totally non-Buddhist absolutely haunting deperation for material goods. And I've tried everywhere --ebay, calling vintage stores, all over the internets. And I can't find them. In particular, I want the pair with the rainbows and the castles on 'em -- I want girly freezy freakies, altho' these spaceship boy freezy freakies would almost suffice. Does anyone have secret 411 on a hidden stash of freezy freakies, left over from the 80s? Please please please please?

Man! I am jonesing for some freezy freakies, much like the way a junkie might jones for smack.

I totally saw freezy freaky's last year in LA @ Buffalo Exchange. I was totally gonna buy them, but ended up not. I wish I did. Maybe call them and see if they have the hook up.

I grew up in the 80's - but in sunny Florida. Mystery solved!

I saw these last night while watching VH1's I love the 80's 3D. I think they were so cool, so I also started looking for them. I came across a blog where a person said that they found the Freezy Freaky's at a store in NYC called "Mod World". The website for the store is www.modworldnyc.com. Maybe you can find them there.

Hi,
Thanks for the link to Rachael Harris' web site. It will help with Google search. The site used to be #1 when looking for Rachael on Google, now it's nowhere. We're still #2 in Yahoo search, however.

Your blog is a lot of fun to read.

Best wishes---

Center for the Dull in Manhattan has literally every Freezy Freaky ever made -- brand new with the label still on them. They're not that expensive either, maybe $5 or $10. I bought one for a girl I was seeing, and she totally didn't appreciate it.

I have a mint condtion pair. Silver and blue palm mittens. The word ROBOT on the wrist of each. They have been clipped together since the very early 1980s. I have seen pictures of a pair with the ROBOT. Logo but I can't even find a picture of these ANYWHERE, and I can find anything. Its unbelievable how well they have maintained... I need to put up some pics. Let me know what I think?? Podonoghue33@yahoo.com
