At the bottom of the stocking was an “I Spy” card game.
“I Spy” is a book series, based on making kids find stuff, all tucked in amongst other stuff. (Excellent training for shopping at Goodwill in the future. But I digress.)
Each card in this game has an image on it. Whistles, plastic cars, marbles. And creepy ass clowns.
And creepy ass clowns in shadows.
“Wow, those could give a kid nightmares!” I says to myself.
That was nothin‘.
Send in….the skeletons.
At this point, I check the package. “For children age 4 and up.” Hmm.
Are they just using stills from Tool videos?
But seriously, what the fuck is this?
The package says the cards were made in the USA. But I can’t help but think some Japanese company had a hand in this, some shadowy conglomerate. “Osaka Horror Movie and Happy Smile-time Toys Concern”, perhaps?
