'Heinz Haunted House' - Haunted Theatre promotion

I am sure that this is only the second promotional item that I have seen from Heinz Haunted House,the other being the badge which is very easy to come across. If you know of any others please do let us know. I really like the Haunted theatre background which of course is the house and scenery featured on the actual tins. The basic idea of the set is that you can decorate the scene with the sheet of glow-in-the-dark stickers,not sure if the stickers would come off again easily. Also here we have an advert from a comic of the promotion.

That's a lovely little promotional item - I'm sure I had something similar to that for Xmas once (only more colourful, and without the Heinz tie-in).

Found that Haunted House badge in Manchester only last week, as it happens!

Brilliant - a product only UK horror geeks seem to recall. Along with 'Bean Street Kids', strangely.

Hi TwoHeadedBoy
I am curious to what the similar item you had once.Was it a promotional item too? Glad you found the Haunted House badge.

Hi Dr.Theda
It's a pleasure joining you your fantastic blog.Glad you like mine too.

Hi Orcbane
Yes its amazing what products you remember at times although somethings you remember seeing things in the shops that nobody else seems to remember.Don't know if Heinz Haunted House was available in other countries.

I don't think it was a promotional item - I just remember a haunted house scene (similar in shape to that one), but it had a LOT more purple in it, and it came with a load of re-useable stickers.

Been looking for it for years now, and haven't even got a clue what it was called - must've been around 1989 or 1990 when I got it.

the haunted house drawing is similar to the letraset haunted house rub-on transfer set from the 70's
