Frankenstein -- Universal Truth

This 1972 postcard from Universal Studios presents a universal (pun intended) truth about Frankenstein: Kids love him.

However, we mustn't forget what happened the first time Frankenstein met a child.

Jack O' Lantern Whirly Toy

I had a variety of these whirly toys when I was a kid, but I don't believe I ever had a Halloween-themed one.  I found this with the original box about a month ago.

Melted Plastic Popcorn Witch

During the earlier part of summer this year, I was driving home from my sister-in-law's house in the city of St. Louis when I spotted this sticking out of the top of a dumpster.

Kiddy Kreetures Cookie Cutters

I've always liked sugar cookies at Christmas time, but when you find these cookie cutters, suddenly Halloween seems appropriate too.

13 Black Cats

In hindsight, I should have posted this last Friday.

This pack of Peck "13 Black Cats" die cuts was still sealed when I found it. However, the staples were barely clinging to the plastic, so I didn't feel too bad opening it. The die cuts are flocked for that fuzzy feel.

Wacky Memories

These days for Halloween treats, people favor handing out pre-packaged candies; the treat you receive from one house indistinguishable from the next.  When I Trick or Treated as a kid, I might receive a candy bar at one house, a comic book at another, and wax Wowe-e Whistles, money, popcorn balls or apples at others. One of my earliest Trick or Treating memories when I was around 7 involved what I thought was an odd treat at the time, but in hind sight was pretty cool and appropriate. I received this Wacky Packages sticker.
