About a decade ago CVS had some cool exclusive stuff to get you in the store once in awhile. I seem to recall some Rudolf stuff for Christmas for a few years. I didn't pay that much attention. One Halloween season though, they got my attention.
At the height of the Beanie Baby craze, everyone was releasing their own Beanie characters. CVS had the Universal Monsters. The terrifying monsters of your nightmares, now made soft and friendly! These guys are great, their faces remind me of grumpy Muppets
There were more, a Dracula, a Werewolf, a Hunchback and the Phantom of the Opera. They're still cheap on eBay, perhaps someday I'll have to round out the set.
