THE TWELVE DAYS OF POGMAS - DAY 12

 CHRISTMAS EVE! IT'S A HOLIDAY FRIDAY SO LET'S HAVE A HOLIDAY THEMED POG

 THE HOLIDAY IS HALLOWEEN, BUT WHATEVER

 1995 PARACHUTE PRESS GOOSEBUMPS #2 STAY OUT OF THE BASEMENT

 TWO THINGS THAT SCREAM EARLY 90S ARE POGS AND GOOSEBUMPS AND HERE THEY ARE IN AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE. SADLY, EVEN THOUGH I LOVE GOOFY HORROR STUFF GOOSEBUMPS HIT WHEN I WAS JUST A LITTLE TOO OLD AND MISSED OUT. RL STINE IS STILL MY BRO THOUGH, BUT I REMEMBER HIM AS JOVIAL BOB STINE WHEN HE WAS EDITING BOOKS AND MAGAZINES FOR SCHOLASTIC LIKE BANANAS. THIS POG SET WAS NOT AVAILABLE IN PACKS, THESE WERE A GIMMICK TO SELL BOOKS. NOT LIKE GOOSEBUMPS NEEDED HELP SELLING BOOKS IN 1995 BUT HEY, SELLING A COUPLE MORE BOOKS TO SOME POG-HAPPY CHILDREN WHO CAN'T READ COULDN'T HURT ANYTHING. THIS SET IS REALLY WELL DONE AND FEATURES COVER ART IN SMALL ROUND FORMAT WITH SOME OF THEM ALSO HAVING GLOW IN THE DARK STUFF ON THEM! THIS CAP FEATURES A CREEPY LEAFY HAND WHAT COMES FROM A THING THAT LIVES IN THE BASEMENT THAT YOU SHOULD STAY OUT OF. I'M REALLY SHOCKED THERE'S NOT MORE INFORMATION ON THIS STUFF ONLINE ESPECIALLY SINCE THE KIDS WHO ENJOYED POGS BACK IN THE DAY ARE NOW IN THEIR 30S. THERE'S SERIOUSLY AN OPENING TO BE THE WEIRDO ONLINE POG GURU FOR ANYONE WHO WISHES TO BE A NICHE INTERNET CELEBRITY


THIS IS A CLASSY LOOKING BACK. NUMBER, TITLE, LOGO, COPYRIGHT. SIMPLE,  UTILITARIAN, YET STILL ATTRACTIVE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN EXACTLY WHY YOU SHOULD BE STAYING OUT OF THAT BASEMENT HERE IS A GREAT VIDEO FROM PUSHINGUPROSES REVIEWING THE TV EPISODE BASED ON THE BOOK. ALL HER VIDEOS ARE FUN, CHECK OUT HER CHANNEL IF YOU LIKE TV MYSTERIES AND ADVENTURE GAMES


 

OH LORD THE TREE IS SUPER CROWDED NOW EVEN AS IT REDUCES TO CHARCOAL. THERE'S STILL A BIG SPACE UP TOP THO I WONDER WHAT THAT IS FORRRRRR

Goosebumps were my jam back in the day. Never got into pogs though, nor do I remember getting pogs with my Goosebump books? Probably some sort of Scholastic promotion or something? Who knows, but I do know that I enjoyed this Pogmas entirely too much. Please do it again.
