Beasties by Wham-O ~ Be A Monster Maker 1960s Creative Toy

I just found this photo in my archives of an amazing toy kit I found years ago.
It was made by Wham-o in the late 60s and is basically an art kit to make fun little monsters.

It includes Pom poms, pipe cleaners, feathers, misc fur, and eyeballs.

When I was running an afterschool program I put out this same assortment of items, 
inspired by this find.  The kids loved it and made these creatures every day, until we rann
out of literally ALL of the supplies and related supplies.  Then they started to use paper
to make them houses and cars and vacation retreats!  It really sparked their imaginations.
