This Artist Turns Iconic ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Illustrations into Custom Toys



Production is now underway on director André Øvredal‘s film adaptation of Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books, being produced by Guillermo del Toro. Recently, del Toro confirmed that artist Stephen Gammell’s illustrations will be faithfully brought to life in the film, which has us very excited about what promises to be a terrifying movie.

On a related note, how about some Scary Stories toys?!

We’ve profiled the work of customizer Readful Things a few times in the recent past here on BD, as he’s impressed us with his custom horror toys and even horror VHS art pieces. Today, we wanted to shine the spotlight on his many Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark-inspired toys, based on Gammell’s aforementioned illustrations that still give us nightmares.

A couple of these are currently available in the Readful Things Etsy shop, but we encourage you to drop the shop a line through Etsy if you’d like to make a custom order for any others.

Childhood nightmares resume in 3, 2, 1…

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
