The Indian in the Cupboard was one of the 'classic movies. My youngest child liked it so much my dad made her a "cupboard" for her Indian, when we bought the movie (it was included with the VHS). She even had an old skeleton key to open the cupboard.
I used to color on the space maker part with Crayola marker. Then I would put Elmer's glue on it and sit it under my desk and wait for it to dry. When I would go to school the next day it would peel right off.
