While looking around for last week’s Toy Commercial Tuesday offering which featured a variety of Beetlejuice toys, I came across this one for the Creepy Cruise as well. Next to the Vanishing Vault, this car has got to be her favorite piece of Beetlejuice merchandise from Kenner.
I don’t know if there’s anything about this car specifically that she loves, but she does enjoy having such a large car to push around. It’s currently sitting in my office next to previous TCT entry the praying mantis bug car from Ghostbusters which she and I will roll across the floor filled with any variety of toys I pull out of boxes and hand to her. What’s your favorite toy car in that scale?
I hope you’ve noticed that posting around here slowed way down for a few months there. Between the huge rush of work I had in October, moving throughout most of November and then all the usual craziness of December, it’s been tough setting aside time to blog. But, I’ve been busy ready, watching and playing which brings us back around to this latest Toy Commercial Tuesday entry: Beetlejuice and the Vanishing Vault.
As a kid I was both freaked out by and obsessed with Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. So, when a toy line that was actually based on the film and not the animated series popped up from Kenner, I was all over it. As it turns out I have everything seen in this commercial except the Otho figure. A few weeks ago, I was looking through some of the boxes filling our garage and came across the Beetlejuice toys. Since then, my three year old daughter has been playing with them when she hangs out in my office. She’s a big fan of the Vanishing Vault and even puts other larger figures in there to turn into tiny Beetlejuice. I never thought I’d say this, but sharing my toys has been a lot of fun!
