Create Your Own Shrunken Head From An Apple

Filed under: Halloween — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

This toy looks so cool. It’s just the kind of “creative” toy that my mom would have gotten for me as a kid. I wonder how I missed out on it.

If you’re feeling left out, this website gives you an idea of how to get started:

Of course, you will want your shrunken head to be gory and ugly. The Vincent Price set used a series of vinegar dips to give the shrunken head a more leathery and preserved feel, so you might want to substitute vinegar during step six. Don’t forget to sew the lips shut!

Good Luck and Happy Shrinking!

  1. I personally love vintage toys. It’s fun finding the toys you had as a kid, or the ones you always wanted.
