It made goofy, stretchy, plastic kind-of creepy crawlies. There was also a flower power add on for the Thing Maker which made psychedelic colored flowers. It came with a heating element, the metal molds and bottles of plastic goop you poured into the molds.

This was my favorite toy ever! I could not remember the name of it and I have been scrolling through every toy on your site (remembering other fun toys I had forgotten about) when I got to the Ts and there it is! Thanks for the site.

Found an early Thing Maker TV commercial, with molds for creating soldier and weapon figures, called Fighting Men, complete with dark green Goo in small squeeze bottles. Of course, Mattel also mentions Creepy Crawlers to make an extra buck. Commercial aired on the "Tom & Jerry" cartoon show (10/16/65), CBS-TV.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, the Fright Factory mold set for Thingmaker. You could make googly eyes, fangs, weird-looking nose and ears. TV commercial aired on the "Road Runner" cartoon show over CBS (10/7/67).
