This is a wonderful vintage COLORFORMS Toy from 1965 – it’s THE MUNSTERS CARTOON KIT 1965 Kayro-Vue Productions #270. This is quite a rare set, one that does not become available that often. It’s a really neat set and what is really great is that it is only missing two very small pieces. What is included her are all the Munsters family members each with several body parts and accessories/extras! There’s Herman and all his parts are green; Lily and all her parts are red; Eddie and all his parts including his werewolf doll are also red; Cousin Marilyn and all her parts are yellow and finally, Grandpa and all his parts are blue. The original set had 47 stick on pieces, the set now has 45. The missing pieces are a small red shoe of Eddie’s (he has another piece that has feet so he isn’t without) and a red bat. One of Marilyn’s yellow arms is bent and one of Eddie’s red legs is also bent. All the pieces are still housed on their original black shiny holders (box inserts that have tabs to be held inside the box). The play surface that you stick the pieces on to play is a black, white and gray drawing of The Munsters’ cobwebbed filled living room! This surface is in very good condition. Also included is the original paper insert/pamphlet that came with the set. It opens up and shows some of the many scenes you can make with this neat toy. All of this comes in the original box but the box has seen some wear. The box measures about 12 " by 8" by 1". The box bottom looks good, clean with no split corners. The box top certainly has wear around the edges and corners. All the box top corners are intact but there is a tear on one of the sides of the box top that had been taped but the tape has long since fallen off. Also the there is a small hole that has been punched through the box top on far left side. The litho on the box top looks good but does have a few bubbles in it. (I’m making box top sounds worse than it is.) It’s a real neat vintage toy and would be a welcome addition to any The Munsters/vintage TV collection
