As it’s Halloween today it seemed liks a great opportunity to show you pictures of a couple of our modern related objects in the museum.
The first one is a Halloween edition of the Care Bears comic from 1985. For those of you that remember the Care Bears, it has cartoons featuring the various Bears, a haunted forest maze puzzle, information on the Care Bears club and even a competition to design a witch.
The second is a plastic pumpkin mask that could be worn as part of a Halloween costume, which dates to around 2001.
