“Spyrograph” by Charlie Centipede

Spyrographs were eventually recalled when too many children inadvertently used the toy to draw powerful occult symbols, which opened dimensional gateways that allowed nameless beasts and cosmic horrors into our world. Once the manufacturer, Hazmatbro, realized this was happening, they placed an advisory sticker on the box warning against the possibility of creature summoning and dimensional disruption, and also disavowing any LEGAL responsibility should any such thing occur, but by the late 1980s, after several lethal bestial rampages, a class action suit was filed against the company, and the product was pulled from the market. It was in all the papers, remember? Too bad… It was a cool toy.

  1. Oh yeah, that was the only toy I ever played with! Too bad Mone was taken after the Shoggoth Summons of ’71.
