Famous Monsters of Playtime
By James Burrell


Children have always loved monsters. There’s a fascination with those misshapen, sometimes scary, other times wretched, pitiable creatures that even when they’re afraid of one “being under their bed” or “in their closet”, little boys (and girls) still love to watch movies, read books and of course, play with toys based on them.

As hard as it is to believe nowadays, prior to the 1960's there were next to no monster-related toys or collectibles available on the North American market. With the exception of early 1950’s EC horror-based comics like Tales from the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear and The Vault of Horror (which were not specifically marketed at children, but being read by them), monster and horror entertainment was thought of as adult-only fare. Eventually, these comics were to come under fire as being psychologically damaging to children, and the final nail on their coffin was the release of a 1954 book entitled Seduction of the Innocent by Dr. Fredric Wertham. In it, the prominent psychiatrist cited horror comics as a cause of juvenile delinquency, leading to concern from parents and educators. As expected, the publications were quickly pulled from newsstands. With EC Comics losing money, the books soon stopped being published.

The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash

The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...

Aero Games By Patrick Flynn After coaching one of my teenagers on the causes of the First World War, I realize I have to start at the very beginning. Aero did not start out as a chocolate bar.
