None of my toys are for sale

Yet another way cool line of toys from Mattel in the 1960's. A tremendous variety of metal mold kits were available to make plastic items ranging from bugs to flowers to people. Also available was the Incredible Edibles line that allowed one to cook up edible candy and cake treats. Toymax currently has the rights to the Thingmaker/Creepy Crawler name and produces many kits to this day. You can buy current Creepy Crawlers items from Amazon.com.
