    When I get a chance, I'll take some photos of it "in action".
    It's not over yet!

      Thanks to all again.

      Nursery, kitchen sink, or their own faces.

        Cool. Dead thread revival. My mom bought me one at Kay-Bee toys in 1983. Never seen or meet anyone else that had one. I remember there were a couple of different styles. Click image for larger version

          Thank for posting. This is one of those memories that has haunted me for decades - it's nice to know I wasn't going mad!

                I hadn't seen this thread before but the first post reminded me of a sweet thing i had as a kid (sorry not related to this toy which i'm glad you finally found!) - where the box was a plastic coffin shape and the "candy" inside was shaped like bones etc. They only seemed to be available from our local Newsagent one year for a short time but I remember buying them as myself and a mate were obsessed with Scream/Horror Cards/Paranormal type stuff.

                  The were called Boneshakers, I remember my Brother keeping one of the coffin boxes around after all the sweets had been eaten.
