Nightmare Decor



One look at this thing brought back about a 1,000 different nightmares of being alone in a relatives dark basement and discovering one of these on the wall. Seriously, why were these made?

I'm gonna say they were made b/c David Crosby needed money to pay back taxes.

This is sorta like the 70's equivalent to the junk they sell in skymall.

Early version of those talking fish, Big Mouth Bass, that sort of thing. Down right scary, I understand why you'd have the nightmares.

Just a novelty item. Very 70s, very kitsch. I'd rather have a macrame wall hanging; those absorb sound and look better.

My Grandpa had one of these!

My Uncle Bud had one, and when he passed away, he left it to me. It's in a box. I'm too terrified to have it in the open.
He loved to spray that thing. One time, the water got in my mouth. Horrifying and very plasticky.

OMG, my grandma had one of these in her basement rumpus room! I haven't thought about the ghastly thing in years!

The Laffun Head - created by Peter Laffun. The nightmare of all children growing up in the 70s.

Archie Bunker had a Santa Claus one!

My mother had one, but it was a wizard. The laugh was very disturbing.
