Playskools Big Frank

Playskools Big Frank

I always have one eye open in thrift stores for cool Halloween decorations, so I was as happy as Dracula in a blood bank when I recently discovered this Playskools Big Frank. Poor Frankie seems to be missing a few critical internal gears, but that wouldn’t have stopped Dr. Frankenstein and so I did not let it stop me, either.

While Halloween is a great time to display Big Frank, I want limit him to this holiday. Frank can be the centerpiece at Thanksgiving. This green guy with a red coat would be great for Christmas.

If you are lucky enough to find a Big Frank out there, no matter what the shape, make sure to pick him up. I am certainly glad I did.

    Think it would be cool to get a 3d printer so you can make parts for found toys like this.

    Nice find Rob! I let one of those get away last year at a Tulsa Flea market. I meant to circle back to the booth and buy it when ready to leave but forgot about it until I was an hour down the road.
