Craigslist freebie of the day: Your pet monster

Not included: Nicki Minaj.

Do you remember My Pet Monster? Maybe you don’t, seeing as I’m turning 67 years old this week, but it was among the better plush toy innovations of the 1980s. This Craigslist freebie today reminds us of ye olde pet monster, minus the handcuffs. Says the ad:

Doing some studio cleaning and looking to get rid of a large stuffed monster that was made for an installation years ago. It’s the monster shown in the photo, sans hot dog and soda. It’s a bit worse for the wear as it’s been stuffed into storage and a few spots are pinned back together so I wouldn’t recommend it as a children’s toy. Trying to make space so if you can pick it up, it’s yours.
