HORROR BAGS PACKETS - Puppet,Game and Clutchers offers

I spotted these on another site [well just the fronts of them] and asked their owner if he wouldn't mind sending me pics of the backs of them too, which as you can see he kindly did. Thanks Darren. Nice to see these packets with offers for the Dracula hand puppet, Serpents and Stairs game and Creepy Clutchers. Still haven't come across the Dracula Puppet or even seen a photo of one, still curious to what they are made of.

I used to love Curly Wurly's when I was child but to my knowledge I don't remember seeing this promotion for a 'Creepy Wurly Ghost Mobile', I wish I did though. I had seen a photo of the wrapper awhile ago on ebay and was hoping to put a bid in or if I did I was outbid. Anyway here is another [better] photo like the one I saw before and here is the actual Ghost Mobile that you could send away for. This is so much better than what I imagined it to be like, the graphics are fantastic and should imagine it would of looked spookily stunning when made up, especially if it glowed in the dark too. There have been some really nice spooky promotional items from the 60's and 70's and I think this is up there with the best of them.

I'd just like to thank Jason who kindly let me use these images here. Please take a look at his wonderful collection of packaging from around the world. Follow this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonliebigstuff/sets/
