Gre-Gory is a loser?

From the "parents just don't understand" file, I bring you a 1980 report crapping on a toy that any ten year old knows to be awesome, Gre-Gory the Vampire bat. The group questioned it's play value? It's big bat filled with blood, do I need to spell it out for you?

I can't go a Halloween season it seems without talking about Gre-Gory (something I have always pronounced "Gree-gory") . Always wanted one, never so much as held one and it's starting to get a touch old.


Aggggh!

I had this toy as a kid (and as an adult) and absolutely loved it! It used to fight my Star Wars guys as a giant alien bat-beast! Hours of play-time indeed!

I never had one, but I always liked this ad from one of my comics: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_of7mShM5N1g/TMgffVoLVRI/AAAAAAAACLA/f6Y9SdE9-qM/s1600/gre_gory_ad_tagged.jpg

I have one...blood is a little dried up after all these years, but it is still a wonderful toy. Hit eBay, I'm sure you could find one for yourself!
