Blow-Molded is the largest digital museum of its kind. Our archives include plastic indoor/outdoor decorations, candy pails, flashlights, toys/banks, and their manufacturers from the 1950s to modern day. This includes a mix of blow-molded decor ("blow molds", "plastic lawn figures", "light-ups"), vacuum formed decor ("flat backs"), molded foam/vacucel/styrofoam decor, and municipal/commercial decorations for all common seasons and holidays.

Assorted Companies

A mixture of distributors and manufacturers. These companies tend to be more obscure than their better-known counterparts. Often operating at regional scales, exclusively within other countries or for a short overall duration. Some of these companies sold their products under their name as well as under other retailers' in-house brands, leading to some confusion about whether a given company was its manufacturer or distributor.

Pre Blow-Molding Era Manufacturers

Prior to the mainstream adoption of the blow-molding process, some early manufacturers used hard molded rubber or plastisol. Given their age and the materials used, relatively few of these pieces have survived and tend to be among the most difficult to find and preserve.

Municipal Manufacturers

Intended for use by municipalities or commercial displays, these manufacturers produced the biggest and brightest products available. They often manufactured for decades, producing hundreds of unique (and expensive) products, resulting in recognizable but hard to obtain collectibles.

Asian & European Companies

Less documented than their American counterparts, these blow molds come from a variety of manufacturers and distributors across the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia and were only made available for purchase within Asian or European markets.
