Pygmy Puff Pelmanism was a memory game which presumably had a Pygmy Puff theme.


The New York Ghost advertised this as one of the games in its game section on the covers of its 1 December[1] and 2 December[2] 1926 issues.

Behind the scenes

  • Since the Pygmy Puffs were bred by Fred and George Weasley[3], they were not supposed to exist at the time of the article in 1926. Fred and George bred them from puffskeins, creating a miniature version of them and presumably invented the name, therefore the creature and name Pygmy Puff was unlikely to be named in an article decades earlier.
