Creepy Classics & Monster Bash News!SearsWishBook1971Holiday Shopping The Toy Aisles…For MonstersIt’s November, Thanksgiving and KING KONG are on the way…more on that next week. There’s that cold wind and it feels like the holidays. It feels like shopping.A tradition when I was a kid…the family loading in the car and heading out for holiday shopping. Malls were relatively new. And that’s exactly where we were heading. I was bundled in my brown winter coat and a Charlie Brown styled hat with ear flaps. My sister in a white, with flowers print, hooded coat. Dad at the wheel of the blue Chevrolet and mom commandeering the shopping plans from the navigator seat.In the mall, Grants Department store was where the action was. This store had aisles and aisles of toys. I was released loose to cruise. My eyes beamed in on Creepy Crawler sets, Monster Makers, dinosaur sets, and ahhhh, amidst all the airplane and car models…the monster model kits! I scanned and scanned locating monsters, creepy things, weird board games and comic book characters like The Hulk and Thor on sparkle paint sets. I don’t know how Mom and Dad put up with the endless list of monsters I wanted (well, needed…as I would beg) for Christmas.Outside of the Toy Department there were two other locations I would gravitate to. Over in the photo and camera department there was a display of 8mm movies that featured condensed versions of the films I loved. Even though I didn’t have a projector (too expensive of a gift to hope for), I still liked looking. The other place was the pet department. There in aquariums were turtles, chameleons and baby alligators. Just cool to watch.Sooner or later I’d be dragged by one parent to shop for others. I now realize this ploy was so that the other parent could shop for me and my sister. I get it, I get it…now. My allowance, with help from the parents, would assist me in getting a wallet for my dad, maybe a colorful fashion scarf for mom, a Colorform set for my sister.It was quite the Saturday of shopping. An excitement that I can remember more than many of the gifts. Back at home there was the Sears and Montgomery Ward catalogs. Ready for my finely aimed pen to circle all those cool toys in there.It wasn’t the gifts, though I loved them at the time. It was the experience and excitement of holiday shopping with family.Ron Adams
