What It Is
If the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is made of marshmallow, what are the other Ghostbusters characters made of? Find out in USAopoly's alternate universe called FunEdibles. The FunEdibles Ghostbusters line-up includes collectible vinyl figures that mash up a popular Ghostbusters character with a food item. For instance, Pizza Venkman is Venkman mashed up with a slice of pepperoni pizza. Billed on the box as being “fresh, hot & fun”, we're sure that Venkman would say that about himself whether he was human or pizza. The vinyl pizza figure wears the original Ghostbusters uniform and carries a proton pack on its back. You'll never look at Jell-O molds the same way after seeing the FunEdibles Slimer Lime Gelatin Treat. This vinyl figure imagines what the green ghost from the movie would look like if your Aunt Sally had molded him into a jiggly Jell-O salad. And there is, of course, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man vinyl figure that has more of a marshmallow shape than he had in the movie. But the figure still wears the character's signature hat and red necktie. These collectible figures range in size from three inches to four inches, and each one is sold separately.
Is It Fun?
For those who like Ghostbusters and food, this line of collectible vinyl figures will satisfy both cravings with zero calories. It's a humorous mash-up of food and pop culture icons that gives fans a new and silly look at some of their favorite Ghostbusters characters. Older Ghostbusters fans will like adding these to their collections and keeping them out on display, but kids will probably want to play with them, too.
