As a little boy I was obsessed with skeletons, ghosts, monsters and other creatures that inhabit your nightmares.
Needless to say, when I first saw “Ghostbusters”, I fell in love.
I wanted, no, I needed, everything that featured the iconic logo that was designed for the franchise.
Best logo ever if you ask me.
I drove my parents nuts on our trips to the toy store, ate enough Ghostbusters candy to finance my dentist’s new car and ruined our vacuum cleaner when I tried to make my own Proton Pack. Sorry mom!
As of today, I’m still a big fan. Whenever I see a no sign, I feel it would look ten times better with a ghost, I regularly listen to Ray Parker Jr.’s catchy theme song and, to be honest, dream of befriending a lifesize Stay Puft Marshmallow Man someday..
I can totally imagine sitting on his shoulder, discovering the world together, trampling one city at a time.
As a result of this unconditional love, my Ghostbusters collection has grown a lot over the years and I don’t think it’ll ever stop. Let’s hope not!
For all my fellow fans: I thought I’d share some of the highlights of my collection for you to enjoy.
And remember:
If there’s something strange in your neighborhood…

Slimer Candy Containers
What can be more fun than eating candy out of your very own Slimer? The answer to that is simple: Absolutely nothing!
Unfortunately, the candy in these beauties has expired after all these years, but the box and containers still look cool when you display them..
Ghostbusters II Promotional Can
This can could be obtained at your local Burger King back in the day. It was meant to promote the second movie and supposedly contains a real ghost, so I’m afraid to open it. I don’t want to become the subject of the next Paranormal Activity movie..
Ghostbusters Toothpaste
Back in the good old 80’s, kids could brush their teeth with The Real Ghostbusters Slimer toothpaste.
It’s slimy, green ánd there’s no sugar added!
Stay Puft Marshmallows
The final item is as cool as it is sad.
This box has that beautiful nostalgic look, but its contents?
As a fan of Stay Puft, I always feel weird when eating marshmallows. As if my friend has been chopped up into delicious, sugary bits that taste really good.
I don’t want to eat him, but I can’t resist doing exactly that either.
You are one tasty pal mr. Stay Puft!
