Here's about what we remember:
FACT 1: In 1975-ish, we got a play-do knock-off. It came with a few cans of "shape & play" and four plastic molds: Batman, Joker, Robin, & Penguin.
FACT 2: We *think* the idea was to stick the "shape & play" into the mold, stick your finger into the "shape & play" et voila: you had a ... finger puppet? bust? mess? loss of interest?
FACT 3: Our Dad cast -at least- Batman and Robin in plaster of paris and painted them for -at least- one of us.
FACT 4: It's 2015 and we now have these molds in our hot hands:
|Shape & Play Batman and Joker (1975)|
|Batman Shape & Play (1975)|
Batman looks a little Toth-y. Definitely not looking back to the Infantino New Look comics and by no means a lantern-jawed Dick Sprang. The sky blue over a dark blue base helps make the cowl details stand out.
|Joker Shape & Play (1975)|
