Help! Does anybody remember what these bead toys were called?

They were like Twisty Petz, but predated them by a year or so. Instead of pastel animals, they were brightly colored bipeds. You strung them together with thick (2mm?) black rubbery cord, and could use them as bag ornaments until they inevitably self destructed. I had a gold soccer girl with bright orange hair, and they also made a black and gold Egyptian cat person. I'd really like to find some again, but I need to know their name because searching for "bead people" yields infinite results.

I always found them in the Target craft aisle. They were packed in little cartons about half the size of a juice box. cutesnail

@Stevie_Burton: I googled Bizu and the singles packaging is close, but the ones I'm talking about had super saturated colors and didn't turn into strings of beads - they were just figures and you had to dismantle them to mix and match parts.

That mix and match spinner tower looks cool!

omg I completely forgot about Twisty Petz! I had the machine thing and 4 of them. I lost them in my room somewhere and I'm not sure if I will ever find them again, because I have no idea what happened to them. I have no idea what the toy you're talking about is, though. I hope that you are able to find them! cutee mushy
