A whimsical, mystical creature that lives on kind words and disappears in the presence of harsh, unkind words. It is a cross between a snicker and a giggle (sniggle) and the “warm, fuzzy” feeling prompted by a cuddle. (fuzzle) Hence: Snigglefuzzle. Copyrighted in 1985 by Othello Bach.
The black and white haired Snigglefuzzle emerged from his pocket, jumped on his shoulder and giggled. When the agent began yelling at the little boy, the Snigglefuzzle became quiet and began to fade and jumped back into the boy's pocket. The mean words were killing the Snigglefuzzle. Afraid his Snigglefuzzle would completely disappear, the little boy ran toward home, all the while singing a happy song. After several verses, the giggling Snigglefuzzle emerged and jumped back on the boy's shoulder for the rest of the journey home.
