I’ve gathered way too much Halloween stuff to post (as always), so I’d like to narrow down the lot by asking what you guys would like to see in the rest of the countdown. Please take a second to click on a preference!

Feel free to comment with other suggestions as well.

Halloween Countdown: Munsters Squeak Toys

Posted in halloween, monsters, toys, TV, vintage with tags , , , , on October 19, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

In 1965, Spanish company Laya produced a line of Munsters squeak toys.

Does anyone know why Bugs Bunny is involved in this? I couldn’t find much info about the company.

Interesting color choices for the toys. Though I remember also being surprised when I first saw a color photo of the Munsters (I’m not sure what I expected…real life grayscale?).

Those located near Orange Country might want to check out the unique Halloween display at Roger’s Gardens.

It almost feels as it one is exploring the craft supply shelves of a witch (who has mild OCD and arranges everything neatly), somewhere in an old mansion.

Classy, indeed.

I adore the antique style decor…

I was going to make a pre-Halloween mix of murderous songs to post, but I’m not sure I’ll get to it. So here is a wonderful “rockabilly doo wop” ballad, by a gal who met an untimely end at the hand of her ex lover…and haunts him as her body lies hidden under his floorboards.
