I would never have been forgiven if I had got the stinker wrong. My Daughter was a total fan of the Ghostbusters as a child, and still has all the toys, Including Ecto 1, put away at her home. I just hope that my Grandaughter never finds them, Ghosts, Characters complete with their backpacks and Mr Stay Puft. As she thinks her Mum is slightly mad anyway.
