The World's Rarest Jiggler FOUND

As any reader of this blog should know, I loves me some dime store rack toys and I also love drive-in cinema, that's why today's entry is so special to me.

You see, for years there has been a legend of a Jiggler used to promote the Blood Island series of movies. Blood Island movies are a wonderful late 1960s series of lurid colour monster movies filmed in the Philippines that I absolutely adore (Oh and these movies just got released on Blu-Ray by our friends at Severin films, go and get them). 

Well, monster toy collector and fellow Blood Island fan Ray Castile has finally tracked one down and shared. You should check out Ray's amazing youtube videos about Topstone Monster Masks, they're really great.

Just like the chlorophyll monsters of Dr. Lorca, I'm green with envy about this find but also filled with gratitude just to know it exists!

Thanks to Ray for sharing this epic find, I'm seriously giddy.

Also, it goes without saying, if you have one of there, I would like to buy it.

I've wondered for years what these types of toys were called. I owned some in the late 70s, early 80s. The drugstore near my grandmother's house had a rack of them, and over the course of a couple summer trips I must have accumulated a dozen or so. My memory is fuzzy, but I recall lots of strange, random characters represented, everything from licensed properties to stuff just made up from scratch.

Ha, Ray has licensed Grizzly the movie jigglers with tags as well. He is the greatest rare toy finder in the country.
