Super Thingmaker

You probably know by now, I love vintage things and reminiscing about the past. As a child, I remembered seeing a box up on a shelf that used to scare the poo outta me but I couldn't specifically remember what it was. In fact, I thought it was a game because it was on a shelf with other games. A few months ago, my sister, Sheena, and I were talking about some of the things we absolutely loved as a child. This is when we thought about the Super Thingmaker and Sheena told me that dad still had his!!! I then looked it up online and as soon as I saw the box, I knew instantly that the crazy fanged, one-eyed man on this box was the exact freaky thing that I remembered from so long ago! So, I asked Sheena to photograph dad's Super Thingmaker for me.... I can't believe dad still has most of the pieces and it's in such good condition!! I can't wait to see it with my own eyes again when we go back to Minnesota this summer! There were still pieces in the box that he had made way back then.... probably 30 years ago! I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do!

The box.... the exact box I laid my poor little frightened eyes on! See how scary he is??????

A peek inside... Wow, huh?

My dad's name made out of Picadoos

A faux cut and stitches on Sheena's hand! :)
