DOES NOT GLOW IN THE DARK. In 1960, a 15 year-old-boy came up with an concept that took the Aurora Plastics business to heights they never could have imagined. The Aurora model company sponsored a contest asking for suggestions for a new line of model kits. Out of 3,000 entries, one, from a young boy caught the eye of the corporation. He suggested a line of monster models and the rest is plastic model history. Throughout the 1960's Aurora turned out a line of classic monster models the likes of which have never been duplicated. Aurora Models used the backing of Universal Studios, the publication channels of Famous Monsters magazine and they coupled it with an attention to detail and an eye for art. Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolfman dominated for ten years, Aurora was booming. Aurora added the Mummy, the Creature and The Phantom of the Opera. Then they added glow-in-the-dark parts and they couldn't turn them out of the molds quickly enough. But, like the monsters they made, Aurora was on a collision course with an raging mob of villagers. In 1971, Nabisco bought Aurora and they had no idea what they had gotten themselves into. The 'family oriented' cookie company soon found itself at the sympathy of protesters, striking out against the maniacal monster images that made Aurora so successful.
