I think the plate-wobbler free gift was like a small 'balloon' which could be inflated slightly by squeezing a squeezer thing which was on the end of a thin bendy plastic tube. Placed under a plate a quick squeeze would cause the plate to wobble. - Sean Conran

I seem to remember it being similar to a small whoopee cushion , connected to a bulb held ( not so ) discreetly in the child's palm , and linked obviously by a length of plastic tube . Guess it should have been used under a tablecloth ( actually , I only just thought of that -- damn ! ) - Phil Frances

Do you have any information on a particular story in 'Monster Fun' comic, featuring pink two-legged horses and stripey blue dogs? It was a sci-fi in a Dan Dare-gone-mad scenario, and it was really easy to fold into the chaotic realism of finding yourself in a completely alien world. I thought it was fantastic. It was crammed full of the stuff that makes a 'comic-book' , of so modern ideal today. The principle of putting such fantastic imagery in the foreground while the story stays in the midground and the setting in the background is simply not common, even in today's comic books.

Unsurprisingly I am now an adult, and I find it's really difficult to express this feeling without resorting to a complicated code of buzz-worrds, as if the meaning of my words are now nothing, as opposed to what they were. I wish I had these comics at my disposal now, thinking back to when I had any memory to dispose of. - Jon Hill

The best feature in Monster Fun was the Badtime Bedtime Book which was an eight page pull-out mini-comic printed on the centre pages of almost every issue. Along with the Willy the Kid books the Badtime Bedtime Book was the best thing Leo Baxendale ever did. As well as telling the main story the Badtime Bedtime Book had little cartoons and jokes drawn in the margins. Leo Baxendale gave up drawing comics when IPC magazines started printing his earlier work without his permission, and in 1976 Badtime Bedtime Book was drawn by Mike Brown and other artists.
