These little retro looking bubble bath figural containers are just so cool and great fun with their wobbly heads. Consisting of BONEHEAD, VAMPIRE and WEREWOLF and made by Napa Products Ltd of South Cave. I think these were available at the time from 'Boots' chemists, sometime during the 1990's.

'FOAMY FIENDS' - Bubblebath containers

The 'Foamy Fiends' Frankenstein's Monster and Mummy were also made during the 1990's, not sure what particular year though. These were produced for Super Drug Stores. The 'Foamy Fiends' were made of quite thin plastic but I think look rather bubble-ly.

'HORRORBUBBLES' - Bubble Bath Bottle/containers

I really like to see all the different novelty bubble bath containers that come out each year, great fun and look nice displayed. Of course I like them even better when I come across a monster one like the examples I will be listing here.

The 2 'HORRORBUBBLES' that you see here of Frankenstein's Monster and Dracula were made in 1994 by Jackel International Ltd of Northumberland. I think the figures are quite cute although they do both have rather sinister eyes.

Sometimes the coolest Halloween things can be found in places that every Halloween normally have cheap and tacky ghoulish goods, I am talking mainly of the Pound shops, but I guess you get what you pay for, but it's nice when you do see something that catches your eye. Something a little unusual or as nice graphics or nice design. I don't have anything against tacky items as such but sometimes they can have a bit of tacky class to them. Anyway one such item as you see pictured here is this fantastic looking Vampire spooky door knocker which I got a few years ago from a 99p shop. I wish I bought a few of these now as they are just wonderfully sculpted and a little sinister. Although it is only made of plastic, I think it would look great on an old spooky door all the time or just for Halloween. The 'Spooky Door knocker' was part of the Horror Zone range at 99p stores, this particular item was made by Rayland, not sure if they made all the Horror zone range. Hope to see more of this type of Halloween product at 99p and Pound shops.
