Toys, toys and more toys! The end of last month found me all kinds of goodies including Bat Man, Beanie Boos, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Care Bears, Despicable Me, Doctor Who, Fireman Sam, My Little Pony (G1, G3 & G4), PJ Masks, Pocahontas, Postman Pat, Squinkies, Twistheads, Zelfs and Zhu Zhu Pets.
All kinds of figures! I found a bundle of Zomlings with houses, several DC and Marvel action figures, Moshi Monsters, Skylanders, Monster High and loads of other things (101 Dalmatians, Cheeki Mees, Crazy Bones, Dizzy Dancers, Glimmies, Lion King, Little Green Men, Little People, Lock Stars, My Little Pony, Octonauts, Pocahontas, Pokemon, Rusty Rivets, Shimmer & Shine, Terraria and Waybuloo). I also found a few as yet to ID toys and a few loose odds and sods.
The last two weeks have been very plentiful as regards to buying toys. So much so I am now at maximum capacity and really hope my shop begins to succeed before I am crushed under a pile of dollys! I also struck on an excellent idea, and one which I hope will set my toy sales apart from others – FREE PIN BADGES, designed especially to go with certain sales!
I came back with over 200 little items at my last carboot rummage, mostly in Moshi Monsters! I also found a few fast food toys, some other little figures (including Littlest Pet Shop, Puppy In My Pocket, Hello Kitty, Crazy Bones and Disney), a Cupcake Surprise doll (with hat!) and a super Magic Roundabout plush. It took an absolute age to wash this lot!
Last Sunday’s carboot sale unearthed several (plastic) gems. My favourite find by far was an Austin Powers action figure (with hairy chest). Groovy baby! Along with Austin, I found several little figures (including My Little Pony, VIP Pets, Powerpuff Girls and Littlest Pet Shop), lots more fast food toys and several doll accessories.
I came home with sack full of toys from last weeks charity shop expedition, plus had a few carboot finds too. In fact, there were so many little toys I couldn’t fit them all on the table to photograph together! I found a few dolls (including Novia Stars and Mr T), lots of fast food toys, several different figures (including Fabuland and Littlest Pet Shop) and a few plushies (including another Boohbah hot water bottle cover). I also found a well read six pack of Paddington Bear books and four My Little Pony (forgot to add them into the group shot)!
Last weeks finds included lots of little figures, which I love! I found Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, Trolls & Zelfs, various mid-90s fast food toys, Pingu, Scooby Doo, My Little Pony (G3), various In My Pocket figures, a Pound Puppies Newborn, In The Night Garden, a large Minions vampire plush (who I forgot to add to photo, so have snuck him into the side!) a few books, comics and Mambos and Cha Cha Cha on LP. Ooh yes, and an ALF figure thing from the week before!
Last weeks finds were most plentiful, covering the carboot on the Sunday, followed by various charity shops during the week, and seem to have found lots of things in twos! I’m most pleased with the vintage He-Man and Stormtrooper figures, an Ever After High doll for 20p and the fabulous “Boring Postcards” book!
I had some luck with vintage toys whilst out charity shopping this week (1980-90’s), with Girl’s World, an original Furby, a giant Sweetie Pups, Tasmanian Devil and Dennis the Menace. I also found a few more Animal Jams, PJ Masks car and figure, Paw Patrol, Spongebob Square Pants, Scooby Doo, Doctor Who, Zelfs, Despicable Me Minions, Ddung, Baby Bratz, Lalaloopsy, Pokemon, Winnie The Pooh, My Little Pony, Chubby Puppies, Pez, In The Night Garden, Peanuts and Dr Octopus from Spider-Man.
I found a selection of smaller items whilst charity shopping this week, including Powerpuff Girls, Trolls, Fifi & The Flowertots, G4 My Little Pony, Crazy Bones, Moshi Monsters, Chelsea (from Barbie), Transformers, Little Mermaid “Sebastian”, Glimmies, some boots, the front half of a Polly Pocket: Clip N Lock dress, and a G4 My Little Pony headband.
On Thursday I took a wander into Leigh to see what I could see, and came back with three My Little Pony: The Movie figures, RoadBots, Power Rangers: Time Force, Care Bears, Zelfs and Trolls, plus and a wonderfully illustrated biology book from the 1960’s. And on Monday, I found another My Little Pony, Sonic The Hedgehog, Felix The Cat, Shnooks, a few mini items (Littlest Pet Shop, Star Wars, Disney and Moshi Monsters), a lovely illustrated children’s book, and three volumes of Golden Hands sewing magazines from the 1970’s.
I found all sorts of little bits and pieces last week whilst charity shopping, including My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, Moshi Monsters, Trolls, Zomlings, Doctor Who: Daleks, a Fireman Sam “Norman” figure, a Monsters University figure, a FurReal Friends purple kitty toy, some little Disney kitchen items (these were all over the place), and a Littlest Pet Shop wagon. The Cupcake Surprise doll and Barbie dog I bought from the charity shop next door after I’d finished volunteering…
