One of the bigger explosions in the seventies was the rise of the homemade craft kit, which no doubt was brought about by the hippie movement of the 60's..
Children across America were making macrame (guilty!), rug hooking (guilty!) and happily making Christmas tree Candles (My father must have worried about me).
One of the bigger players in all of this was a company known as Rapco, who had the good sense to create licensed Canadle sets of the Universal Monsters, who wouldn't want a frankenstein or a creature candle? I want one right now!
Check out the 1975 Rapco Catalog for Famous Monsters Candles , Plaster casts and Bisques, as well as spin art, bottle cutters and plastic-cast baby!
