|Thanks to BrianF for sending me this photo of one of his monster rings he found in his attic.|
|BrianF's Brother also found his original Monster rings|
These plastic monster rings were around for quite some time certainly during the 1970s, possibly during the 1960s too. The box of rings you see here are from the 70s judging by the price. Made by Leaf here in the UK and another company in America. I've seen various different designs of the box art on the Internet and a number of colours of the rings including silver. There were 6 different designs of the rings, from what I can make out these were as follows: Skull, A tiger beast thing?, A Bat, An Alien type creature?, A Monster of some sort, and bizarrely a Ladies hand with painted finger nails.
I remember buying some of the rings during the 70s or maybe even into the 80s. I still have 3 of the Skull rings which you can see being worn beautifully by the rubber severed hand. I did used to have a Bat as well [Green I think it was], don't know what happened to that, must of flew off. I am also wondering if you could get the rings in those slot machines like with the bubble gum machines.
They maybe cheap but I like the charm of them, quite nice designs as well.
