While visiting my uncle who lives in my old homestead today I decided to go through cedar chest and other areas of the house again...You see my uncle is a hoarder so when he moved into my grandparents house back in 1987 he left all contents intact and untouched...
I have searched and found my childhood Gijoe items in the past... Very Happy  But I was focused only on Gijoe at the time so alot of my other childhood items were overlooked..

Anyhow I found my old Fright Factory set! And the outside box is still in great condition, inside box not so much though... Laughing  

I can remember in the later 1960's my grandma would make me Shrunken Heads and the such!
Some Shrunken heads and other stuff still remain in the box! cheers cheers cheers Some items melted together though so they are kind of in a melted glob...

Not sure if anyone else remembers this set or not....But great memories for me... lol!

A blast from the past indeed Jim!

I don't think they sold those sets here in the UK but I remember the ads on the back covers of comics in the 60's.

Health and safety were always checking on the building site where I used to work back in the mid 1980's, probably because I was working there LOL!. Edible moldings would be a safe idea, something like shrunken heads and creepy crawly cakes for Halloween, that would be a good idea Cool

Interesting find Jim,

I reckon the creepy crawlies don't need that light contraption as it appears they dry/set on their own, I suppose it's a added fun item whith a crank weel that can be turned lol!
