Around the same time as the pet rock and the squirmels. It was a piece of sheer fabric tied over a cotton ball with a length of fishing line attached to it. You could make your ghost dance and do tricks.

I bought mine in the late 70s at Ben Franklins. Frank I would love to buy one or two. How do we go about this?

I recall seeing these as prizes at the local carnival. (The game where a wheel spins and you try to shoot your prize with a carnival rifle.) I really wanted one, but the game is rigged so you never get what you're shooting at. Years later I figured it might just be an empty box, since ghosts are invisible who would know? Glad to know what it contained. A 40 year mystery solved!

Pet Ghosts were made in 1975 by the small Funstufs Company, based in suburban Miami. Each ghost came in a small box (blueish with haunted house scene), and had a sheet of design paper outfits. A vinyl tote box was made for those collecting more than one. The ghosts were about 75 cents each, sold in display boxes of 24, usually at variety stores.
