To start things off, I present this prehistoric Hippo

I do not own this one, and that's Susanne's photo.  But those spots make my skin crawl, and I would not touch it without rubber gloves.

DO you have a picture,(or own) a figure that would make your skin Crawl?  if so, then this is the place to show it.

OMG! Yes that hippo gives me goosebumps. There's actually a phobia of that (forgot what's it called), I can't stand anything very holey or honeycomb looking.

Trypophobia, fear of irregularly places holes and such.

You already own it Andreas. I have no pictures to share, but Wild Republic giant sea life bucket is full of reused molds that are kind of vintage. It contains a wolf eel.

This item doesn't give me the Heeby Jeebys, but I imagine it did give a lot of people them at the time it was made:

[img][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/img]

It's a toy model of an 'Anderson Shelter', a WW2 bomb shelter which were issued to families to semi bury in their back gardens in 1939-40 in the UK. At first it is now well recorded that a lot of kids thought the war was all very exciting, but after a few terrifying, cold and uncomfortable nights in one of these shelters as the Luftwaffe were dropping bombs all around, I imagine these became much less appealing toys.
These toys, probably made by Peacock Ltd in the Islington area of London area of London, I'm guessing are very rare. I've only ever seen two of them offered for sale, and I now have both of them!
The toy companies Britains Ltd and Taylor & Barrett made some interesting Blitz themed sets to go with this shelter.
