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.

3D Haunted House Picture

I've just come across this excellent picture on the Hawkin's Bazaar website (looking for something else entirely). It's nicely Gothic with 4 of the Luminous Spook elements (apparitions, bats, pictures of skulls and suits of armour).  It comes as part of a 3D Shooting Game . Go to the link for a higher resolution picture, get hold of some red and blue 3D glasses and enjoy the spooky scene!

Waddington's Ghostly Galleon game

Glowing ghostly pirate figures are almost as rare as spooks (Playmobil doesn't count!), so I was very pleased to see that this board game from the early 90s came with a luminous figure of Blackbeard's ghost. And what a splendid figure it is too!

This site has full details of the game and lots of high-resolution pictures, including Blackbeard's ghost from various angles and in both glowing and non-glowing mode: .

I've nabbed this low-resolution image as a taster:

The game looks fun enough too. One more for the wish list!
