Remco Monsters at Home
The Remco Monsters at Home series is a weird little footnote in Monster toy lore, basically the company took the heads and hands of their 9" Universal Monster dolls and made these charming little hand puppets complete with a plastic environment.
What's weird is, it all sort of makes sense, Dracula has a coffin, the Mummy a tomb, the Creature a sea chest and Frankenstein..... OK they don't all work but there is something likable about this line.
Creature from the Black Lagoon carded in his sea chest
Dracula Mint On Card
Mummy Mint On Card, he looks pretty sleepy. I love the text on the card "come out and plaaaay!" Somebody saw "the Warriors"...
The Front of Frankenstein's "Home"
Frankenstein on card.
See that look? That's the same face I make when you knock on my door on Saturday morning.
I'm missing the Creature if anybody has a picture they'd like to contribute, drop me a line.
