Creature Spoon!

Apparently this was part of a series of monster spoons available at the Universal Studios Tour... if anyone knows different, please speak up!

  2. These were made by Zoo-Piks in 1965. There were Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy and The Creature "Monster I-Scream Spoons" (and also stir sticks) in red, yellow, grey, and (rare) orange. Sold 8 in a poly bag with a header card.

  3. Thanks for the correction, Mike! I've seen all those on eBay separately, but never got the confirmation of what era they were made!

  4. Zoo Piks is still around, making disposable bar/restaurant supplies. No more UM ones, that I know of, though.

    Most of the spoons/stir sticks you see on ebay aren't the original 1964 ones, but they're apparently from the same molds and they're cheap!
