Creepy Crawlers Archive
Creepy Crawlers were first sold by Mattel in 1964. They were some of the first toys that you could make at home. They featured metal molds that could be filled with Plasti-Goop. The filled mold could be heated in a special oven to cure the goop. Mattel later marketed Creepy Crawlers as Thingmaker.
In 1978 Mattel released Thingmaker II. It featured a new safer oven, plastic molds, and a new formulation of the goop.
In 1992 Creepy Crawlers were revived by ToyMax. In addition to producing a new oven with new molds, a series of action figures were produced.
