    Default Monster Mystery

    Hi everyone,

    Does ANYONE remember a large flat cardboard toy called DIAL A MONSTER? (1969-73 ish.)

    It resembled an antique picture frame with 4 real wooden knobs, and an aperture in the middle where the face was assembled...
    The closest thing I can find is a toy from 'Amsco' called TOON A VISION!

    The toy was very cool, and it featured knock-off images (I think) of Universal's Monsters... Mummy, Frankenstein etc....
    If anyone remembers this, or incredibly, even has a picture. That would be amazing!

    Kind Regards,
    Johnmm

    I had this toy circa 1970, I bought it in Ely in Cambridgeshire from a shop in the High Street... It was really cool and I've been trying to find it again for the last 10 years or so.
