Here's a monster slide tray puzzle not by Roalex, but by Plas-Trix...

I'm not sure of the provenance of this Bat Slide Puzzle from 1966:





It looks like it could be by Plas-Trix, but I can't say for sure. All I know is that it's very cool!

The bat puzzle does look like it could be Plastic-Trix. It has the same skull and headstone illustrations, and some of the same monster illustrations on the card, too, and both are made in Brooklyn, NY.

Here's the last slide puzzle that I have, it's a Popeye from 1974. It's made by Toy House who also made little two or three inch tall versions of the Colorforms Outer Space Men which are hard to find today...

Here's a close-up because the Jaymar puzzles are like precursors to the Eerie Publications magazine covers where it's a psychedelic horror of weird monsters doing horrible things to people and other monsters.

Excellent observation!
