We had this...

Creepy Crawlers

Plus there was the ingestible version of the goop, under the name "Incredible Edibles."

This might have been one of the most dangerous toys ever -- the Thing Maker and the molds got incredibly hot, and it had no shield of any kind. There are probably a lot of people my age who have burn scars from playing with this one.

I had the equally dangerous "Creeple People" and, yes, I have the scars to prove it.

Not so long ago at work, I smelled a distinctive and familiar odor, but I couldn't place it. My boss (who is my age) also smelled it and said, "Do you remember Creepy Crawlers?" "Of course," I cried, "that's exactly what they smelled like 'cooking'!" We never did discover the source of the scent.
