One of my favorite vintage Halloween toys of all time has to be this cool Frankenstein Trick or Treat pail/bucket also know as “The Glenn Strange” bucket (because Glenn Strange played Frankenstein’s monster  in a couple films after the legendary Boris Karloff hung up his boots).  
Here’s a neat picture I put together showing all the angles of this cool bucket….This guy has really skyrocketed in value over the past year. I’ve seen a few pop up online over the past 10 years, and up until this year, I never saw this bucket reach more than $350. Twice in the past couple months, examples of this bucket have sold for around $700! 

The Clinton Toy Corp. made these awesome buckets (I’ve heard they were made around 1962-1964). Here’s a couple other very cool vintage Halloween toys the Clinton Toy Corp. made around that same era….

Here we have a “Zoom Out” Trick-or-Treat” pumpkin scissors in the original packaging, and 2 versions of the Skull Club Rattle. All of these items are fairly rare as well. 

Too bad there aren’t any toy companies today making awesomely detailed items like these.
