Monster Munch Munchers Club pack

One of my favourite items from my Monster Munch collection has to be a Monster Munch Munchers Club pack from 1987! Monster Munch would often promote this club on their packets and a devoted Monster Muncher that applied would receive this pack containing; A Monster Munch Munchers certificate, Monster Munch Muncher Membership Card, Monster Munch Munchers Pen, Monster Munch Munchers Badge, Monster Munch Munchers Magazine (newsletter), Monster Munch Board Game, Monster Munch Magic Slate, Two Fact Files (Geography themed facts about 1:Earth 2:Water) and Transfers! Inside the “file” it reads, ‘Welcome to the “Monster Munch Munchers!” All the Monsters are looking forward very much to you joining them in having lots of fun. There will be many exciting things for you to play with and do; such as games, competitions, stories, crosswords and much, much more. Not only that, you will be able to join the Monsters on their adventures in MonsterWorld, where they encounter many weird and wonderful things. We hope you’ll like this special “Magic File”. But make sure you look after it and keep it somewhere safe, as only “Monster Munch Munchers” are allowed to look inside. Open your “file” and you’ll discover your won special “Munchers” member ship card, badge, pen and certificate. But that’s not all! There is also a Monster’s board game, magazine, magic slate, two fact-files and a transfers set – made especially for you by the Monsters. Being a “Monster Muncher” is great fun. And you may even win a prize! During the forthcoming year, we’ll be sending you Two further magazines, which will both contain even more new and exciting things for you to do. Bye for now, have fun!’ Any child returning home from a long day at school would have undoubtedly been thrilled to discover one of these waiting for them as the artwork and wording on this pack is beautifully appealing. As you can see from these photographs.














The Monster Munch Munchers Magazine was just as well illustrated, with puzzles and stories and a mini poster to stick the transfers on! It encouraged members to write-in and share their pictures and jokes it even offered parents the opportunity to nominate their “Little Monster” for a ‘Monster Munch Merit Medal’ for good behaviour. The medal was awarded to 50 of the most deserving with the best 5 being invited to a special Monster party to meet the Monsters themselves! Good behaviour is a reoccurring theme in the club as Monster Munch Munchers are asked to try and keep the Monster promises

Keep My Monster Bedroom Tidy
Do a good Monster deed every day
Keep my Muncher teeth clean
Be careful crossing the road
Do my Monster Homework
Make my Monster bed every day
Be kind to other Monsters

As promised inside the file the magazines continued through the year with a final issue and on the back it reads,
This is the last Munchers magazine in the current series because the Monsters are going away on a great adventure. All the Monsters have enjoyed the magazine, especially all your jokes, puzzles and pictures. All you have to do now is enter all the competitions and remember to watch out for the Monsters and their favourite snack, Monster Munch – Ask your mum to use the money off voucher enclosed.
