I have been looking for one of these Batman Crazy Foam cans for a long time, and the hunt is finally over…
Theses cans of bath foam/soap were made in 1974, but for some inexplicable reason, I have a vivid memory of having this soap as a kid. Maybe they produced them for several years, or my mom bought an old can, but I know I squirted soap out of Batman’s face at a tender young age. This can is actually still sealed shut and full of foam, but I wouldn’t dare squirt it today for fear of a minor toxic incident — FDA standards in the early 70’s were not what they are today!
Figural products like this one are my favorite kinds of items to add to the shelf, and this guy fits right in, doesn’t he?
Nice! But speaking of environmental standards, I would be careful about storing it. If some kind of combustion or explosion DID happen (and I would research this if I were you to be sure) that could be disastrous to any nearby pieces.
Hmm, good point. I’ll have to look into the chances of that happening. 😉

Nice find! I love that Batman clock, too!:)

I’ve been looking for that Batman Crazy Foam can as well, surprise, surprise. Each time I find one on eBay, the price is over my budget. That is one expensive can of foam.
Congrats. Love how the Batman shelf is coming out.

What a score! I am so jealous right now I am as green as The Hulk with envy. I remember having Superman and Spider-Man as well as Batman as a kid. I even vaguely rememeber commercials for Crazy Foam too. Too cool.
I you are into old stuff, check this out:
Ha! I put those pogo sticks in my watch list the other day. Unfortunately, the seller won’t ship them and Whitehall, PA is a bit of a hike, but those things are pretty great.
I definitely had this as a kid. I love the packaging on that piece. You’re Batshelf is looking proper too!
