Monster Face toy

I wish I had one of these when I was a kid. Produced by Hasbro in the early 90s,
"Monster Face" was a sort of horror-themed variation on Mr. Potato Head. With a wide assortment of disgusting parts to attach, it was just the kind of gross-out fun that children love.

In 1996, Hasbro teamed up with the makers of the "Goosebumps" book series and re-released this toy as "Monster Headmaker". (They even included instructions on how to create four of the most popular Goosebumps creatures using the set.)

I was able to track down PDFs of the original instruction manuals for each of these toys. Click here for "Monster Face" and here for "Monster HeadMaker".

I remember my cousin had this toy when I was little, and it really creeped me out. But it creeped me out enough to make me want to have it...I never did get it though. And I never even knew what it was called, until just a few days ago. I wish I had one now, but they're impossible to find!

That thing was awesome, I remember it had green ooze that came out of its nose when you pushed on that orange button.

I DO have it, and my 2.5-year-old daughter LOVES it! I only wish I could replace the slime and the degraded pulsating blister, so she could get the entire experience. But it's enough she has it AND the Potato Heads to choose from.

I had this when I was little. I wish I could find it now for my nephew. I had so much fun with it. I also want to get another Creepy Crawler maker..I loved that as a kid!

I have a "new" in box 1992 Hasbro #7955 Monster Face. What is it worth? I am going to put it on eBay.

I had it. I got the green clay stuck in all the cracks and bumps. I wonder what happened to that thing?
