Creepy Crawlers were made by the Mattel company and were a variation on the toy Incredible Edibles in which a plastic like gel was squeezed from a tube onto a metal form. The form was then placed in an oven heated by an electric light bulb and allowed to bake. The form was then removed from the oven allowed to cool and the plastic bugs were then peeled out and the excess bits trimmed. The primary difference between Incredible Edibles and Creepy Crawlers was that Incredible Edibles were supposedly food, although those who tasted them may not always have requested seconds.
Creepy Crawlers was a popular toy in the 1970's.
