The Moodies spinner button is the creation of artist Judy Woudenberg and entrepreneur Bob Petry from Kent, Ohio. The Moodies, characters created to represent emotions and conditions, were part of Petry's business, Kent Toys Incorporated. In 1983, the Moodies boomed in popularity. From 1983-1985, Moodies were featured on stickers, buttons, fast food meal toys, calculators, shoes, and even a Tokyo security firm's logo.
