Beware parents, the freakiest new playthings make noises, they crawl up walls, and have more heads and creepy eyes than we can ever possibly imagine. They are literally the stuff from my nightmares horror movies.

    Recreating the famous Universal monsters, this line features creepy figurines of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and Dracula. Personally, I'd prefer not to have to relive the terrifying flicks, but these are a must have for any horror buff.

  • Spider Gremlin

    Without having to relive the entire 90's horror comedy flick, we can now see the movie's spider gremlin in all of its lifelike glory. The 10-inch-tall statue is recreated perfectly by NECA and features an opening and closing jaw, jointed shoulders, and 8 fully-hinged legs.

    Price: $49.99

    Meet Baby Arvin. Cute, isn't he? This creepy (?) newborn is just one in a collection of Krypt Kiddie dolls that are "cuter than hell."

  • Zombie Runner


    This severed zombie hand runs via external charger and can scurry across floors, up walls, and even up-side down. The movable fingers pulsate as the hand makes its trek on virtually any surface. Charge it up and watch friends as this eerie hand dashes across the floor.

    Price: $31.49

    Granted, The Walking Dead isn't exactly a show for kids, but their ghoulish figurines make for some pretty interesting toys. In honor of the show's fifth season, McFarlane Toys has released a line of characters and beasts scary enough to keep the kids far away from the television.
