I'm hoping you can help me, I've been trying for years to ID this toy line. I've enlcosed a picture of the one Toy I've managed to find from the line (The photo came from another collector, so I can't tell you if there are any markings or not)
Basically this figure is from a toyline of Ghosts that were released somewhere between 1984-89. I had this toyline when I was a child and some of the details I can remember are the following.
-They were packaged on a blister card
-There were 3 Ghosts available (The Red Screaming Ghost, photo included, An Orange "Happy" Ghost, and a Green "Wrinkly Ghost"; imagine a Sharpei Dog)
-The ghosts all had symbols on them - The red ghost has a bat, and I think one of the other ghosts had a moon.
-The backstory on the package had something to do with the 3 little ghosts battling an evil Mother Ghost.
-The figures were available in North America, I'm from Canada, and the photo is courtesy of a collector in the USA.
I hope you can help me. I've been searching for years for what this Toyline is called.
Cheers and Thanks in Advance!
I can Identify the mystery little rubber ghosts.
They are called Glow Ghost they were sold in the 1980s in blister packs. They were produced by Pinapple industries, they are not traceable as far as I can tell. There are 4 in the series:
Catcher-pillar guardian of the magic door, eye patch 3 sets of arms, glows green.
Boo Hoo,the shy but lucky ghost, is pink but glows yellows, has a lucky clover on his body.
Baggs,the smart but a little clumsy ghost, green in color glows green has a bow tie.
Broozer, not afraid of much except for insects. pink in color, glows orange, has a bat on the body.
Each comes with a little booklet.
I have added a thread with some for sale, too.
