Remember Avon’s Gilroy the Ghost?

What’s a mother to do when her child has both chapped lips and is afraid of the dark? Don’t worry Mom, Avon’s got the perfect solution with Gilroy the Ghost. Gilroy kept me safe at night, long after the lip balm was used, or more likely, melted after being left in a hot car. My sister had a caterpillar variation, but I always felt that Gilroy was the better of the two glowing finger puppets. I thought of Gilroy as a happy ghost, but now as an adult, those eyes look a bit mournful. Too bad Avon doesn’t still make Gilroy, because if they did, they’d have at least one sale.
