Souvenir Friday- Fun Halloween Items

Although not each of the items is specific to Halloween, they are representations of creatures found for Halloween such as ghosts, cats and devils. First up are two different sets of Casper the Friendly Ghost card games. The Harvey comic character was every kid's favorite ghost and even a live action feature film. The graphics are very bold.

Next item is a great Bakelite cat toy. In the 1930's Bakelite was an early plastic that was used for many products, crib toys being a major use. The cat is in a great cubist design.

The final two items are nice ceramic statues. The first is another Harvey Cartoon character Hot Stuff. He is a home cast statue and missing his trademark pitchfork. Next to him is a small ghost ceramic most likely from the 1940s. He has a nice wispy pose. All of these characters live in my Halloween room.

I loved reading Harvey Comics right along with my DC, Marvel and Disney comics when I was a kid. Back then I thought Casper, Hot Stuff, Richie Rich, Little Dot and Baby Huey with the written and visual puns were pretty cool.
