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)!
What did I buy last week? Vintage toys include a View Master with three reels, a Troll wearing inline skates and a super 1970’s doorbell! I also found a few Barbie dolls, a Sindy and Littlest Pet Shop Blythe doll, a modern Popples and Cabbage Patch Kids, Zelfs, two FurReal Pets and a Zhu Zhu puppy, a Cupcake Surprise with extra hat, three Palace Pets with extra tails and crowns, several McDonald’s Happy Meal toys, a little Lalaloopsy doll with spare head, Zomlings, Fingerlings, Pingu’s igloo (which goes with the three figures from the previous week), Transformers and a few other little figures. I bought a couple of baby dresses to have a go at making doll dresses from too.
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!
I found a ton of little bits and pieces whilst searching some charity shops the other side of “the big town” (Southend!) at the beginning of the month. I had so many little items in one shop the shop lady literally shovelled them into a One Direction shopping bag off the counter (I didn’t notice it was a 1D bag until I got home)! My favourite finds were the Power Rangers figure, Furby and Lizzie Borden Head Knockers.
Foraging around the carboot on Sunday unearthed me two Garfields, two Trolls, Mary Poppins, a PG Tips monkey, five Furbys, a giant Pixie Punks doll, a naked #Girlslife doll, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles breakfast bowl, two nursery rhyme mugs, a Gormiti figure, a Big Hero 6 figure, and my favourite, Muzzy!
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.
