I wish I was still at school when these 'Horror Bag' pencil cases came out, these are wonderful and the sort of thing that never seems to get made anymore, well as far as I am aware. The first 4 you see here were made by Helix, the top one is made of plastic and the other 3 made of soft vinyl. The coffin shape one at the bottom I don't think was made by Helix, this is also vinyl. The vinyl Helix ones have a date of 1986 on them, not sure when they actually came out though. Helix also made other items in the 'Horror Bag' range such as a large black plastic spider pencil holder, exercise book, and pencils, there may of been others too.

Many thanks Paul , your website is fantastic, Sallyanne

Hi Sallyann
If I ever see another one of the pencil cases I shall certainly let you know, I must admit I haven't seen any more of the Horror Bag pencil cases just yet, I'm sure some will turn up sooner or later. Have you tried on Ebay?

Thanks for your kind comment, glad you enjoy visiting the Cobwebbed Room.
