New BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD Birthday Masks at Party City!

A reader of the Bat-Blog recently sent in these pics of his 2 sons. He said he got these Batman Party Masks at a place called PARTY CITY for $1.93 each! It's a Birthday Party Supply store & he said that besides plates, cups, napkins ( the usual stuff ), there were also some toy prizes like the Grappling Hook & the Batarang too! The neat thing about the masks is that they are not those flat die-cut paper ones they usually make but are sort of 3D plastic-molded ( He did say they were kind of cheap & flimsy but they're still awesome ). David said when he was returning home from the store he could see his kids in the backseat wearing the masks & seeing the "creepy eyes" was sort of weird, ha ha! I gotta admit I have always liked this "Birthday party" stuff because it's so unusual. Plus, it's kind of inexpensive & fun to look at. Now, these masks are totally great & I am going to have to buy a few of these! Thank you David for sending in the wonderful photos.

After you posted this: I ran out to try to find a few of these. This, sadly, to no avail.

...but I will continue to try to find them.

They so remind me of the Ben Cooper (now vintage) Halloween masks of when was a young child.

...and are simply nifty things.

Thanks for the post, Tommy. Without it, I'd never know they existed.
