monsterstuff
Happy August! It's Monster Stuff time! As with Cool Stuff, these are items I've saved photos of from eBay auctions of the past. They may or not be available at this time.

Mattel was the king of plastic toys you could make yourself back in the day, and here's the Strange Change toy, featuring the Lost World! I used to have one of these a long time ago... I have to admit, I did burn my finger once on it (not badly, though).

Mattel's Thingmaker was the epitome of their make your own toys line! I wish these made a comeback.

  1. I'd love to hear about your readers' experiences at one of those midnight spook shows. It seems they were put on all over the US but for some reason one was never held near where I lived. What were the stage shows like? Were the live performers locals or a road show troupe? Did they actually scare anybody?
