More glow-in-the-dark vampires!

There were 2 sets of these on eBay, from seller cookinsupper, a couple of days ago at the very reasonable buy-it-now price of $12. Unfortunately for me, I was too slow off the mark. It would be great to see these glowing in the dark - can anyone provide pictures?

Haunted House Glow In The Dark Refrigerator Cover

Very similar to the dishwasher cover in the previous post, this item is larger.  There's no witch, but there is a skull in the foreground. The cats' and bats' eyes glow nicely. Great spooky atmosphere!


 This picture is taken from a listing by eBay seller ethelcole40.

Haunted House Halloween Magnetic Dishwasher Cover

Here's a terrific Haunted House scene, full of atmosphere, on sale from eBay seller ethelcole40 (item 251426109781) and others.



It's possibly a bit too big for a standard-sized European dishwasher though, so over here it may have to go on a wall instead.

Update on glow-in-the-dark vampire figures

I posted a while ago about these figures. Now I have just seen a set for sale on eBay, from seller nosferat4real.  They were made by (or perhaps for) Happiness Express Inc in 1992 and sold for $1 in Wal Mart. The picture is a smaller version of one from the auction listing (number 221360864895).


A quick search uncovered more information and pictures on this blog.

Frosted Flakes Ghost Monsters


Here's a GR-R-REAT promotion from Kellogg's Frosted Flakes (what we on this side of the pond call 'Frosties') for glow in the dark 'ghost monsters' iron-on transfers for T-shirts etc presumably. There's a gr-r-reat haunted house picture at the back - curved staircase, longcase clock & panelling (like a certain Sugar Puffs promotion from 1965) with kids exploring by lantern light. Image was 'borrowed' from site Mr. Breakfast. See here for the full-sized picture. Does anyone know when this dates from?

More spooky glow-in-the-dark shapes

It's always good to see new spooky glow-in-the-dark shapes, even if, as in this case, they are on the cheerful side.

The skull, ghosts and bat look fine. That cat really should have its back arched, though, and the house doesn't look spooky at all.

Even so, they look to be a bargain at £1.29 including post from eBay seller bestvalue988 in China.
