Creepy Crawlers

 Creepy Classics & Monster Bash News!CreepyCrawlersMoldBatSpiderA Creepy Crawlers ChristmasThere’s one Christmas that comes back to me with a whiff of pungent hot plastic goop. Yes, indeed, Creepy Crawlers for Christmas. One of the best Christmas gifts ever for a creepy monster loving kid.We lived on Pine Street in Grove City, PA when I got the Creepy Crawlers set complete with the little electric oven and stock colored goop. In case (heaven forbid) you don’t know what Creepy Crawlers are…it’s a set where you could make bugs, spiders, snakes, bats, worms and such in multi-colors. You got metal molds to fill up with “Plasti-Goop.” You cooked them on a small oven (The Thing-Maker) and pried them out with pins, forks or paper clips. Presto, a little rubber bug.You could make loads of them and Mom and Dad could get you refills of goop at the store. What a dream-come-true. Making icky bugs to plant around the house, in baby sister’s room, or to smuggle to school. Even trade ones with other cool kids.I’ll never forget that first plunge in Creepy Crawlers on a Christmas Day in about 1966. It was in the kitchen, on the Formica kitchen table with the curved chrome corners. My dad and I whipping up those rubber bugs in bright yellows, reds and life-like black for spiders and ants. That strong, strong smell of Plasti-Goop rubber. Burning my finger on a not quite totally cooked lizard, the plastic still molten on part of it. Ouch.A later Christmas, after we had moved to State College, PA would bring the similar “Fright Factory” with even cooler monstrous things to make with Plasti-Goop. Shrunken heads, fangs, eyeballs, scars. Oh man, someone at Mattel Toys knew exactly what would bring joy to a young Monster Kid. The memories to last a lifetime.Ron Adams
