My wife saw a segment on QVC today, they were selling Squirmles! The price was $16 for a 4-pack; not sure if that also included shipping.

Although I usually get $5 for a Magic Worm, I think I'd be willing to take $1 off if someone would buy 100,000 of them in 30 minutes . . . . SETH

That was my friend Carl on QVC today.Hes been on several times over the last year with them.You get two bigger ones(bigger than the pitch ones) and two pitch size squirmels.The back of the package can be cut out and made into a squirmle village.Carl has this package made for QVC only.

If you go to qvc.com and type in "squirmle" in the search the vid of Carl on the show today is still there.

Black nylon thread?

The squirmles I got were thick fishing line.

Wait, did she just say it was needing medication? An ADD worm? Whoa!

I was at the mall today, and there was an entire of kiosk of just worms - nothing but worms, all four sides from top to bottom peg hooks of worms. They didn't even demo them, just ran a tape.

I don't know what the price was, but they had "buy two get one free" signs.

Carl who was the guy on QVC works kiosk's his sister works kiosk's I worked a kiosk last Christmas here in Nashville Tn. with the Svengali deck.You can make BIG bucks even with the high rent.

You have to demo them LIVE !I can't believe all they are doing is running a TV tape.I promise they are losing no less than 75% of their gross by not demoing them live. FOOLS !

The worms got some bad reviews on QVC.com

People were complaining about the fact it is a string, he even said its a string in the demo!

Wow, that's really the "lazy man's way" to sell the worms!

I have also seen these "video demos" set up in stores, and they really stink. Don is right, there's nothing like a live demo of the worms to push the sales. SETH

And for $4, they were expecting a nuclear-powered high-strength magnetic Magic Worm?

It's still a darn good trick, they were just disappointed in the simplicity of the secret.

But it fooled 'em, didn't it? SETH

I actually sold nearly all the worms I had today at a sale.

I went in with about 40 and left with 6. They were really selling today.
