In the 80's, I was a small young tyke who fell in love with Monster In My Pocket figures. They are tiny, artistically crafted, aesthetically pleasing, and even durable (but keep away from flames!) depictions of "monsters" from different myths and cultures. I don't think my Catholic parents had any idea that they had purchased me Kali, Behemoth, and even The Great Beast himself for a Christmas gift. I was in Heaven...er Hell...whatever. I was geeked!

(Later series of MIMP included a few more off of the list of Infernal Names, including Leviathan, and Astaroth. And there was, of course, a witch and a warlock.)

In packs of MIMP was a fold out checklist which gave a quick description of the monster, myth, deity, or whatnot. The names, depictions, and information took a simple toy that was already fun for any child with an imagination and turned it into a launchpad for interest in world cultures, history, classic cinema, classic literature, cryptozoology, and why, even Satanism.

What an excellent toy for a sprouting Satanist.

As Satanists, did anyone have a childhood toy that they felt was specifically Satanic? Were there any monsters in your pockets? Did you cuddle up next to a soft, plush Cthulhu? Anything of the sort?

There are many parents on this board, and I can't help but wonder what type of toys they offer their children for amusement. Are there any you feel are specifically Satanic that you want your child to have?

In your opinion, what does it take to make a toy Satanic?

I too collected Monster in My Pocket as a kid. Who wouldn't want a collection of minature demons to fool around with?

On that topic, I think there was actually another Satanically interesting figure in the second run, that resembled Dagon! I think it was actually called a "Fish Bishop", probably due to copyright reasons.

I actually gained a great deal of my early interest in mythology from MIMP. Curiousity about the monsters it contained spurred me to read books of Hellenistic mythology, which of course led to other things in turn.

Another great toy I recall was a plastic skull on a base, that came with a good deal of slime, playdough, and other substances, as well as molds to allow you to mimic organs, affix them to the skull, and subsequently cut them out of the skull using a plastic knife! Can you say vicarious revenge?

I had many. Here is a list (and keep in mind that, in terms of pre-adolescence, I'm a decade back from you; namely, the 70s)...

SLIME: Came in two varieties: the more common green (the one I had), and the harder to find purple with dark purple rubber worms (the one I did not have, but wanted... a lot!). Sure, it looked like an industrial accident in a plastic miniature garbage can, but it has the gross out element to it, and that's just prime ground for kids. Until you dropped it on the carpet, of course. Then, it was all over.

[Anything] BATMAN: What DIDN'T I have that had a direct connection to the Dark Knight? And as a youngster, I REALLY wanted to be Batman -- to the point where my room, with the help of way too many blankets, became a labyrinthian replica of the Batcave. At least, in formative years. At five, my favorite was the commercially-available mini-model Batcave, replete with Batmobile SCALED to the 8" --that's right, 8 INCH -- action figures. This, of course, is when action figures could not be concealed in a closed fist.

WACKY PACKAGES: There was a fairly bankrupt attempt to cash in on the success of these demented bubble gum/sticker packs in the 80s with the Garbage Pail Kids, but these were the originals. And in contrast to its forebear, Wacky Packages lampooned everyday products, showing that nothing was sacred. It's amazing that anti-copyright and defamation suits weren't levied against the makers of these things. The questioning of all and not forgetting past orthodoxies -- all wrapped up with an enclosed strip of bubble gum, to boot.

MAD MAGAZINE: Can a magazine be a toy? Anyhoo, it's going on the list. Another outlet for kids who noticed far more about their culture than their braindead peers, and knew that it was all hilarious black comedy. In my opinion, Mad Magazine represented (represents?) that. Also, I really tried getting into its weak competitor, Cracked, but it just wasn't the same. Hail Alfred!

ANY TOY WITH EVEN THE SLIGHTEST ELEMENT OF DANGER TO IT: So much of child recreational fare of modern day is just too darn tame for its own good. Before the yoke of PC thinking, we had guns that shot projectiles at ludicrous speeds [MGP thinks fondly of his old Cylon Raider spaceship from Battlestar Galatica], rockets powered by riot-force water pressure, LAWN DARTS, sling-shots, bottle rockets, and other dangerous fun that weeded out the stupid kids from the smart ones. George Carlin called it "passive eugenics." I called it funny.

I also had an entire batallion of Star Wars [read: pre-Jar Jar] action figures -- consisting of Darth Vader, about 20 Stormtroopers, a mess of Death Star droids... oh, you get the idea. I wanted to construct my own technological terror... a fully-operational battlestation, if you will. And that black, masked outfit, too.

One forgotten "toy" are the Garbage Pail Kids. I used to love collecting those. I have yet to see anything of its kind wanted so much (even Baseball Cards and CCG's only has their specific collectors/players).

There would have been no copyright on Dagon, who was a god of the Canaanites and the Phillistines. There may have been legal headaches of another sort altogether, though.

Wow, I had monster in my pocket toys too.
Any other 80s kids remember MADBALLS?
Kushy softball size gruesome heads in a macabre fashion I loved as a kid. Its what popped into my mind reading this thread.
Ahh, the nostalgia.

I never saved my cards and gave them to my brothers.

At the age of 8 I was building my own radios and such. I once built an "alarm" with a movement sensor aimed towards the door which set off a siren if anyone came in my room when I was asleep.

I also used to love to mess about with those chemistry kits you used to be able to get. In the 70's there was some dangerous stuff in there too - not like the ones you get today. And they were not even supplied with protective goggles and gloves like the sissy kits you get now.

Coupled with my electronic endeavours I was able to build some pretty nasty booby traps.

I was a real mean motherfucker. Until my mother put a stop to it. She said it was not normal for a child.

My father then gave me some boxing gloves and a heavy bag, which I loved.

One of my most remembered toys were the Battle Beasts. I think a few are lurking in my old room somewhere.
They were and are a rather unique toy. I played many a battle with them. I think they would out fight my Joes on ocassion or fight along side Cobra now and then.
Yep memories Beds were mountains, Rug patterns mazes and roads, Books forts and all the world my stage.

I used to get these nifty science kits that came in metal boxes. Of course the chemistry set was my favorite, much as UVRay described. I also had a really cool mineral kit, with streak plate, nitric and hydrochloric acids, and various hardness samlpes for Moh's scale comparison (up to 9 only, of course)! And the weather station, with anemometer, rain guage, sling psychrometer (for relative humidity), weather maps, and so forth. I believe I also got a microscope.

But my favorite was a young lad's best friend, the air rifle. Not a "Red Ryder", but the legendary Daisy 880, powerline series:



The kids that had the Crossman 760s were mocked mercilessly: Their lever was awkward, would pinch ya, and was hard to use. Plus, it was about 100 fps wimpier than the Daisy.

That air rifle could shoot a straight pin through a nickel at short range. You could fill the barrel with BBs and toss them straight up for fifty feet or so. It was neat to watch them come down. And of course, the wars. We always tried to enforce a "one pump maximum" rule, but when somebody's just shot you in the ass and is running away at top speed, what are ya gonna do? A three-pump shot would leave a nice welt without burying the BB in your opponent's flesh. Good times.

I'd have to say that He-Man was the most Satanic toy I ever had. I wasn't allowed to watch GI Joe because it was too violent. Somehow He-Man hacking the shit out of Skeletor's minions with a sword was somehow less violent than Sgt. Slaughter giving Cobra a face full of lead.

Damn hippie parents.

And who can forget the Dungeons and Dragons show and toys from the mid-eighties? Now those toys had the Devil's name written all over them. Remember how anything connected with Dungeons and Dragons was defacto "Satanic"? Those were good times.

Ah yes, the Eeighties where Satanophobes and Worry Warts turned out in droves to rise to the threat of all the Satanic cartoons and toys to ensure that future generations woldn't be corrupted by Satan and his violence.

Not like it helped much or prevented Columbine.

Just remember, take your kids to see The Passion. It's one of the bloodiest and most violent movies over, but your kids should watch it because it has an "important message". I agree. Make sure to reinforce in your kids that being an incompetant victim will get you brutalised and then killed. I can't wait for "The Passion" line of action figures with "Scourging Jesus" action playset. Complete with fake blood and a Centurion bearing a razor tipped whip.

Ah, good times to be had by all...

I think that all toys are satanic.
They all are satanic because they all give a certain pleasure to their owners, making them feel good. Satanists always look for pleasure through all the actions they perform and every toy gives pleasure to the person who owns and/or play with it.

I had a book of board games, called "Ghastly Games," by John Ascroft.

Quote:

GHASTLY GAMES: 12 Sinister Board Games Invented, Designed and Drawn for Your Pleasure Author: Astrop, John. Published by Delacorte New York 1983. VG/none; unpaginated; First U.S.A. printing stated; Very Good in glossy pictorial boards, unembellished by any prior owner's artwork but with a closed tear on one page; no dustjacket. Great colorful illustrations. Games include Snake Track, where the goal is to remain undevoured; Ugly Mug, the goal of which makes no sense if you aren't looking at the art; Dracula's Blood, where the goal is either to turn the maiden into a vampire (if you are Dracula), or kill Dracula (if you are the maiden); Germs, with a goal of being the last surviving germ to infect Peeky Pete with a deadly disease, and many more. First Edition Hard Cover Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

Now that I've been reminded of it, I'm seriously considering tracking a copy down. I gave mine to my little sister, and now she won't give it back.

When I was young the only toys I used to play with were toys of monsters. I still got my giant tub of 100's of MIMP toys from my childhood. I rember having a giant castle for them. I used to have them wage war on theese cool toys that were deranged looking monsters on skateboard type things. I normally have a hard time remembering that far back but your post sparked memories of many fun hours inspecting those toys finding which ones were coolest and who was enemys and allies with who.

He-Man was actually considered more "of the devil" than G.I. Joe by my parents. What black listed the Joes was only the Cobra organization, whereas He-Man is replete with all sorts of fantasy, magic, and brute force. I remember even reading an essay by a traveling evangelist that "revealed" what all of the characters words and actions meant.

This was one aspect of the 80's I will not miss (nor make apart of my 80's TE).

I imagine you as a young thinker being bought a "Philosophy Set" for your birthday with free Occam's Razor and some monopoly money for Pascal's Wager. Naturally the Ethical Egoism part of the set was well-used. Perhaps you even got a Ayn Rand booster pack later that year?

I didn't have any MIMP's as a child but if I did they would have felt right at home in my Castle Greyskull. Now that was a Satanic toy right down to the weapons rack and skull drawbridge.

I almost forgot about that most classic of Satanic toys, the jack-in-the-box. Just when you start to become entranced by the beautiful music it makes, out pops the evil clown to scare the living fuck out of a complacent herd.

Oh man, I'm gonna be laughing at that for ages

I was always into Lego as a kid, I just loved creating structures and making little stories where the Lego men interacted and had tiny skirmishes. I guess I would view that as a Satanic toy since it encourages a kid to think and be creative by building different things. I also remember this toy similar to Monster In My Pocket that I think was called Mighty Max which was awesome. I loved all the little minitures and how well crafted the bases were. Oh and the Owl character was great too.

Two things.

Thanks Satan! Someone else who remembers Battle Beasts! I remember writing to Takara and Tonka to bring the things back a few years ago. I can't even find them in garage sales or ebay (both of which I gave up on though) in the 2 years I spent looking. We all need to realize how lucky we were as kids. We had cool toys, decent tv shows, and realistic guns. None of this clear toy gun bullshit, I want mine so realist that the nieghbor kid is going to get shot by the cops for pointing it at me. Good times, good times.

I'm not sure if video games count here, but I probably could have done enough schoolwork to skip two grades with all the time I killed playing the computer game DOOM. That came out when I was a mere lad of nine years, and I don't think I've been the same since.

I had an air rifle when I was a kid, not sure what kind (I'm fairly sure it was some sort of Daisy, though it does not look like the one you've posted a picture of.) but it was surely painful, as it was takin away from me by my father and broken in half after I hurt someone with it. Good times. Shortly after I was given a real rifle and taken target shooting, I was and still am pretty gosh darn accurate.

I think the most Satanic toys I had, at least as far as aesthetics go, were my Dungeons and Dragons action figures. These were not the board game pieces made of metal.These were sort of like G.I. Joe in size, came with dragons and were rather "dark" as far as toys go. I have always been a big fan of Ray Harryhausen's monsters and these were very much like something he would have created.

They came with a castle that was a giant snakes head. It had two levels. The bottom had a treasure chest surrounded by a fire river decal with screaming skeletons tangled within the flames. The sides were decorated with corpses chained to dungeon walls. The top level had a big purple demon with huge black wings, perching in front of a trap door. If you pulled a lever in the back, the trap door would open and the unfortunate fellow standing there would fall into the fire river below. My favorite part was the wall with spikes that you could close on whoever you placed in the room.

To me a Satanic toy should be a toy that lets the child use his/her imagination, including the darker aspects of it. I also think toys like Legos are Satanic because you can create your own toys with them. Any toy that can be used to exercise your imagination or your creativity is Satanic.

To say the least, I collect toys. One line is Living Dead Dolls.. They've had dollies here and there with a typically Satanic overtone (Lou Sapphire, Sinister Minister & Bad Habit..). This year, however, looks to be very promising. These look most impressive:

Series Seven (The Seven Deadly Sins)..

Some of you were allowed to play with toy guns. Now you know how to use real guns all the better.

I got early training in another kind of weapon altogether.

Come on, no one even mentioned the orginal He-man characters. Now that I think of it they were very satanic, used magik, etc, and had many demons. I loved them and wished I never gave them up, for they are better than the new He-man figurines.

Does anyone remember Teddy Ruxpin?

As a child of the 80's I had one... basically it was a teddy bear that had moving eyes and mouth. You inserted a cassette tape in his backside and thus Teddy Ruxpin would "talk." Hey, for a 4-5 year old it was pretty cool.

My Teddy Ruxpin has since been possessed! I found him in a box in my parents' basement and took him out. I put in some new batteries and he still works!

The only problem is for some reason he plays the tapes backwards! No kidding. At 22 years of age watching a stuffed animal's mouth move and speak backwards is some pretty scary stuff!

I loved Castle Greyskull.

http://obsidian.tarantella.net/funstuff/motu/greyskull_v1.htm

(not sure if that's a new one...doesn't feel like the one I had)

Castle Greyskull is so...S/M.

Totally forgot about Skeletor, who was always much cooler than that cheesy He-Man.

I remember trading these on the bus in Elementary school.

They were so delightfully...gross.

Who is more Satanic than Destro?

http://www.yojoe.com/action/83/destro.shtml

The entire Cobra force was pretty damn cool. I've always been a bit too much like Cobra Commander (who was a little bitchy and tempermental) - while striving to be more like Destro (who was cool and just plain devious). Zartan was an interesting character as well - and that Major Bludd (? - with the eyepatch) was always a good sketchy character, at least in the comics. Cobra had those really evil looking H.I.S.S. tanks, too.

http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/83/hiss/

I was never lucky enough to get the big fortresses or the GI Joe Aircraft Carrier (which was the thing to have one year), but I had a great deal of fun constructing elaborate fortresses out of cardboard. They had more trap doors and such anyway - since I made them.

GI Joe had a great renaissance in the 80s. I'm actually suprised more kids didn't grow up clamouring to get into the military.

Also, while it got a little cheesy...the whole thing where they recombined the DNA of the greatest tyrants and military geniuses of all time...from Ghengis Kahn to Caesar to Napoleon... to create the ultimate supervillian, Serpentor, was also pretty damn Satanic.

I loved Serpentor! (...And let's not forget about the hooded COBRA Commander. He looked gleefully evil. Kinda reminded me of a medieval executioner.)

I ended up destroying the "good" GI Joes one day. Serpentor had finally succeeded in resurrecting the ancient Godzilla (the huge toy that fired off his fist like a Shogun Warrior) and well...a can of my mom's hairspray and my father's lighter and Godzilla reigned triumphant.
(All that was left of the good guys was a mass of plastic.)

Yuck! The smell of melted action figure plastic.

I'm pretty sure I used to melt He-Men slowly with a light bulb. I remember the weird chemical smell and the smoke coming out of their melty heads.

The Gozilla flamethrower sounds like a lot more fun, though.

You should make a recording of the Lord's Prayer and bring Teddy along the next time we get together for a ritual.

>>Who is more Satanic than Destro?

Around the ages of 7-9, I was a G.I. Joe FANATIC. It was a big part of a whole military fascination too, including toy guns, the plastic helmet and canteen, camoflague clothing, the small plastic army figures, etc. I collected a lot of the G.I. Joe action figures and toys in its first 80s wave, back when there were only about a dozen action figures. Cobra Commander (with the silver-faced helmet) was only available through a special offer by sending in proof-of-purchase seals. I also bought some issues of the comic book. I wanted to join the fan club (For $5 you'd get personalized dog tags, a web belt, a poster, newsletters and discounts), but my mother insisted it was a waste of money.

There'd be a cut-out 3"x5" file card that would come with each action figure on the back of the package. I would always cut these out and store them in a recipe card box. What I always found intriguing about Cobra was that the higher in rank a person was, the less face they exposed, and the more their file card would read "UNKNOWN" or "CLASSIFIED". Never having been one to destroy his own toys, I'm proud to say that I still have all of these items in decent condition.

When the toy line was in its 2nd year or so, the cartoon show started. I'd come home from school every day in 5th grade and religiously watch the end of Voltron, GI Joe, the Transformers, and The Thundercats, right in a row. Actually, before the running cartoon show, there were two mini-series. I always found the first of these to be more captivating than any other G.I. Joe animation I'd end up seeing. These were finally released on a 2-DVD set last year, which I quickly grabbed. Watching these for the first time in 20 years brought back great memories.

What eventually killed my interest in G.I. Joe was the same thing that killed my interest in Garbage Pail Kids: too much coming out at once. Though that seems to be the death of most toy lines and cartoon shows too. It gets popular, then they place an emphasis on character quantity rather than character quality.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Harry Potter!!! My son has all the toys, books and movies. If you want to give your kids an intro to magic and Satanism, Harry Potter is a great beginning! There is a good reason why Xtians are going balistic over this...these books and toys are very indepth into the occult. My son is only 9 years old and he has learned to cast spells, identify charms, talismans, herbs, made potions, AND he has composed his first "Book of Shadows"! He did this all without my help! It was so cute having him show me his first grimoire which contained his magic potion recipes and the little drawings of skulls, cats and a lopsided little baphomet on the front! He looks so adorable with his little black cloak and cauldron in hand. I think I may buy him the "invisability" cloak for his birthday! *Laughs* The Satanic Bible will be a breeze to introduce to him very soon! He is a born Satanist!

If he's taking so well to "real" magic, have you introduced him to "fake" magic? Such as card tricks, disappearing coins, etc.? I think I was about that age when I received my first collection of magic tricks from my grandfather.

Oh definitely! In fact, that is what started it all. He was always interested in magic and I taught him the difference between real magic and stage magic. But I'm not really good when it comes to learning parlor tricks! My fiance took up stage magic as a hobby for himself and to teach my son. It's MY job to teach him the *real* magic! Now as for Harry Potter...that is as real to him as a Satanic ritual and it's application is as real to us! He already learned the principle of causing change in occordance to his will. One day I was feeling terribly ill with stomach upset and he made me one of his little "potions"...and I kid you not, I actually felt better! His love and concern for me was poured into what he was doing to try and make me feel better! It was nothing but water, sugar and food coloring and I struggled to drink it for him...but it worked wonders! Coincidence?

This was THE toy to me when I was a boy. The buzz that surrounded this movie was like something akin to an urban legend, and when another boy I went to school with brought one to show, and tell it was made clear to us.
I couldn't believe the fear that this thing inspired.

The commercials of it on tv only showed you some kind of weird egg, and when he held this thing up, and pulled the lever that shot the mouth out of the doll, it made everyone in Mrs. Stull's 3rd grade class jump, I was hooked.
I never got my hands on one of these, but I noted well the look of revulsion on the faces of my classmates as they witnessed the sinister symbol of man's fragility, and of the boundless terror-filled possibilities of the cosmos.

No surprise that he was my favorite . The series "Serpentor, Arise" was great. I thought he was much better in the comic book (which was better all around than the cartoon in my opinion). They really went crazy though with the whole "Cobra-La" thing in G.I. Joe The Movie.
