The Magnificent Maleficent Chatter Bear

Lots more toys to add to my collection, as well as my shop during October! I found heaps of little figures, lots of plushies and dolls, fast food toys and books. My favourite finds are the vintage Care Bear and Chatter Telephone, and a super Angelina Jolie Maleficent doll.


Dolls

All kinds of dollys! I found a couple of 90s Action Man dolls with skateboard, a wonderful Angelina Jolie Maleficent doll, four Monster High dolls and one Ever After High doll, Diva Starz, Lalaloopsy, Shopkins Shoppies, Enchantimals, Disney Toddler Belle and Pirate Fairy doll, Ken, Bratz Kidz, a couple of non specific older dolls and a vintage Tammy doll.


Plush

I found Lilo & Stitch, Toy Story, Trolls, Minions, Fimbles, Dora The Explorer, Teletubbies, Frizzys, Waybaloo, Adventure Time, Zhu Zhu Pets, Bush Baby World and a grinning cat.


Figures & Toys

These two vintage toys bring back lots of memories! I had the smaller version of the Supercash play till and the same Chatter Telephone. The till is decimal with a half pence button, and the plastic coins inside have shillings on one side and decimal on the other (so guess it would have been made at some point in early to mid 1970s). There was also older style decimal cardboard money inside the till and a real 10p from 2010, so this till must have been in use for at least four decades!


I found all sorts of My Little Ponies, from G2, G3 & G4. I also found minis and a McDonald’s pony.


I found a boxed Twozies and four loose figures, some mini Barbie and Polly Pocket dolls, a Soma Mermaid, a Barbie baby from 1994, a Magic Merbabies doll, a cheapy doll, a Disney Magic Clip doll and an unknown figure, three Fizz ‘n’ Surprise mermaids, an Equestria Girls mini doll Pinypon, and my best find, a vintage “Love-A-LotCare Bear!


Fast Food Toys

Most of the soft toys came out of the same toy box. I found two Bear In The Big Blue House, Sooty, Mr Men and Little Miss, Hotel For Dogs, Wombles, Muppets, Bagpus, Tweenies, three purple Furby, Hello Kitty watch, Betty Spaghetti, Smurfs, My Little Pony, Froggo, Shrek and Barbie.
