They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."

I think that if you grew up on monsters, no matter what time period, you qualify as a monsterkid especially if you watch a monster movie and it reminds you of being a kid again.
Most of the stuff I have in my "monster room" is there because it reminds me of my childhood.
I look at FM #35 I have displayed and it reminds me of seeing a monster mag for the first time.  My cousin and brother had it at the house I grew up in in the 60's.
Watching "It, Terror from Beyond Space", "The Brain that would'nt Die" reminds me of my mom and dad comming home at nite after being out and I would wake up and they would let me watch these movies with the sitter before she went home.
She also bought me my first Aurora model, The Huchback for my birthday-47 years ago and remember it to this day.
I am a monsterkid!

Were you ever--or are you now--a kid?

Did you ever--or do you now--like monsters?

Have you ever--or do you now attend--Horror movie conventions?

Have you owned--or do you now own-- any monster replicas as produced by Aurora; Revell;  Polar Lights; or some garage-kit fellow-traveler?

Do you subscribe to--or have you read any periodicals such as: Fangoria; Rue Morgue; Famous Monsters of Filmland; Creepy; Eerie; Tales from the Crypt; or Scary Monsters?

Do you now--or have you ever-- stayed awake past 10:30 PM to watch horror movies on TV?

Are you now--or have you ever logged on to www.universalmonsterarmy.com?

Do you recognize any of the following names:  Elvira; Penny Dreadful; John Stanley; Bob Wilkins; Count Gore DeVol; Count Floyd; Mr. Lobo; Dr Shocker; Zacherly; Dr Gangreen; Uncle Forry (4-E or 4ST); Ormsby; Svengoolie; Joe Bob Briggs; Ghoulardi; Chilly Billy Carlile; or Dan Roebuck?


Eight out of eight for me. Most I passed with flying colours albeit admittedly I had to think about #6, and then I remembered staying up to view Hammer Films' Conqueror Worm sometime there back in the seventies!

Recently, I made a post on another forum and made mention to the fact that I considered myself a "Monsterkid". I was told that Monsterkids were a product of the 60's and that I was ineligible to use the term to describe myself. LOL!

I was, in fact, born in '72 and grew up watching the monsters on TV's Dr. Paul Bearer and Creature Features. I built all the old Aurora's (my first was a square box glow Frankenstein Aurora) and owned the AHI's, Remco's, and even the Mego Monsters. I read the Famous Monsters of Filmland mags and my favorite books from the school Library were the good old Crestwood books. I love monsters and consider myself a Monsterkid. But what's the official word? What is the criteria for membership?

Well my vote anyway is in your favour!

I've heard many people argue over this.  My opinion is that if you were a kid (under 18) and loved monsters, then your a Monster Kid.  If your an adult (over 18) and love monsters, then guess what?  Your a Monster Kid.  A Monster Kid isn't attached to a particular year or time frame.  It's a state of mind.  It's how you act and what you enjoy.  For 8 hours a day I'm an adult at work.  But when I get home it's model kits, monster movies, monster magazines, comic books, and general monster fun.  That's a monster kid.  Heck, even at work I plant the monster seed in people.  Even got a few of the younger (20's) co-workers to enjoy the classics.  Hey, it's a start.  So when I hear somebody referred to as or consider themselves a Monster Kid, I know its a state of mind and not their age.
So...Monster-Kid-On...

Monster kids rule at any age.

Well, I'm currently only 21 and my Username implies I'm a "Monster Kid".
Though, I don't reaaaaaaaaaalllyyyyy consider myself that. But, the username just came to me. Not too much thought in it.

Speaking of Monster Kids.  I have two nieces, 4 and 2, that I'm going to start introducing classic monsters too when they're about 7 or 8 years old.  That was about the age I saw my first classic monster movie, Dracula (1931), which got me hooked for life.  I'll definitely start them off with the Universal Monster movies, then go from there.  if I can get just one of them hooked I'd be happy, lol.
