Candee Babes

Anyone remember these? Teeny dolls that came in a candy bar shaped case, open it up to find there's a little room inside too! I hope it came with chocolate!

From the 1980 Montgomery Ward xmas catalog-- of course!

Nope, I've never, ever seen that before in my life. But I love it. I always really liked these shameless corporate cross-marketing schemes though--like MacDonald's brand play food or Hot Wheels licensed by UPS or TWA or whoever. And it seems to have worked! Wasn't there a time before we were all so brand obsessed?

The more I look at these, the more I want to find one and redesign it as a COFFIN BABE
