  • Tombstone / Gravestone toy

    Back in the day (80s) I was given a most curious 'toy' - it was about the size of a 'Pocketeer' (remember those!!?!?!) - it was a cream coloured gravestone with a clear plastic front - and full of what appeared to be water. When turned upside down - blood dripped from holes in the front (behind the 'glass') giving the appearance that the grave stone was bleeding. This pooled in the bottom (out of sight) and when it stopped bleeding(after about 30 seconds) it could be inverted again to repeat the action. Like I said - not your mainstream kinda toy - but does ANYONE have a clue what they were called? I remember the name was a sly play on words - but it's driving me MAD trying to remember! Please help!

              That I do. It's all I have now. That - and the cold, cold silence....

                Well - I think 2 years and a month is long enough. I give up. Going to a hypnotist now - see if they can't dig it out of my head...

                        This is now causing me sleepless nights. I'm going to give up looking at ten years.

                            Thanks. I'm always keeping an eye out too - curse my memory!
