[1 of 2 ID-ed] trendmasters inc trolls 90s
« on: Saturday 09 October 2010, 01:30 am »
i recently discovered some of my troll collection from the storage. i have some that are bright colored with little planets,moons,stars and mushrooms?  they are of two toned. the smaller ones are just bright colored. they are from the 90s. i found some on ebay. i have also a troll that looks like a unicorn and also a bear, both are two toned in color and have the same hippy trippy design. i want to know if more were made like these. im going mad trying to find them. i also found some bigger ones on ebay that talk. if someone here has some MOC and can tell me what the animal type trolls were called id be so grateful. so far ive seen the unicorn, teddy bear and now a kitty cat.

Troll ID: Land of the Trolls ~ Color Changers, produced by Trendmasters in 1992.
Bear ID?












here is the kitty troll i found,not my pic but i will post a better one later

I have some too- from my childhood.  I honestly can't remember anything about them though.  I have the blue bear in your picture and a purple/pink unicorn.  I'm really looking for a green triceratops one that I had that got lost, so if you run into it, please let me know!

One of the libraries in the system I use has this book. Maybe you can see if your library has it or one similar.

The troll in the first picture with the blue hair, thats holding a teddy bear, is definitely by Applause. As I have one that is very similar and has 1991 Applause written under one foot and Made in China under the other, my one is holding a duck though, not a teddy bear. I will post a link to pictures soon.

I have just found a link to a webpage with a few pictures of them:

Apparently they are 1992 Trendmasters Land of the Trolls Color Changers (if they are the smaller figures).

(These pictures are from eBay seller "thetrollgarden."

They are about 3" tall. They change color when dipped in hot or cold water.

The larger ones are supposed to talk, I think.

More large ones:

The troll doll with blue hair holding that white teddy or kitten is definitely an Applause troll from about 1991.

yes i need to show you what i have. here is a few. check in first post. i put new pics. the larger ones do talk. only one of mine works. they say "im feeling lucky", "give me a kiss" and "youre my best friend". lol! im almost sure trendmasters made the unicorn and bear since they have the same paint job and design. the eyes are painted the same way.  and a cool thing they glow!!! the big ones and the animal trolls. so cool!!

oh and the MOC are applause. i love them. i pictured my childhood one. she is missing her kitty.
