I love rummaging around in a good charity shop, you never know what little gem you may find! And as of September 2019, I have put my powers to good use and opend up a secondhand toy section to my shop called THE LITTLEST TOY SHOP!

Lala Generation

Lots of dolls found during September so far, included Barbie, Berenguer (La Newborn and Lil Cuties), Bratz, Disney Princess, Enchantimals, Lalaloopsy, Lil Miss, Mine to Love, Monster High and Our Generation. I also picked up a bag of dolly clothes included Barbie, Disney Princess, Sparkle Girls, and some lovely hand knitted items.

Popple Turbo Funk

I found lots of super toys during August, some for me and lots for resale. So many in fact, that I couldn’t fit them all on the table to take a group shot! My favourite finds have to be the vintage plush Popples and Care Bears, and two Funko Pop: Fortnite figures.

DesignaFlat Strawberry

Finally, I found some dolls! My Monster High craving as been sated for a short while. Other finds from July include Club Chic, DesignaFriend, Disney Princess, Flat Eric, Incredibles, Monster High, Monsters Inc, My Little Pony, My Melody, Paddington Bear, Shopkins, Simpsons, Skylanders, Snoopy, Star Wars, Strawberry Shortcake and Trolls.

Extreme Dino Machine

The week before lockdown began I came across two bundles of dinosaur toys: Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Extreme Dinosaurs. Obviously I worked out the former, being as it was in the box, but had never come across the later before. I’m glad I bought both bundles as they were a real bargain! These were the last things I bought before the shops closed just a few days later.

Suzy’s Chocolate Mask

I had a good spot of luck in the last few days the charity shops were open before lockdown, and was presented with a freshly donated pile of well loved Ladybird and Janet and John books on stepping through the door of my local (the manager knows me too well)!

Masters Of The Thunderbox

I found a good selection of vintage action figures in mid-Feb, including A-Team, Bomberman, Dungeons & Dragons, a Galaxy Warriors shield, Masters Of The Universe, Monster Wrestlers In My Pocket, M.U.S.C.L.E., Star Wars and ThunderCats. I also found vintage Fisher Price, Playmobil figures, Matchbox cars, and Snoopy. Not forgetting Manta Force, Mighty Max, MASK, Butt-Ugly Martians and a couple of Marvel minis!

Naked Bush Dolly Rescue

February was a good month for dolls! My favourite find (quite literally), was a naked Doctor Who “Sec Hybrid” doll in the bushes along my road! He had been there unclaimed for a couple of weeks, so decided to rescue him from the spiders and give him a new home (and clothes when I find something fitting).

Smasha-Potter-Pooh

Last months plush finds include Barnie, Bat Man, Brave, Bunny Surprise, Care Bears, Chatimals, Donald Duck, Furby, Harry Potter, How To Train Your Dragon, Incredible Hulk, Kinder, Minecraft, Nintendogs, Skylanders, Smasha-Ballz, Tweenies, Wallace & Gromit and Winnie The Pooh!
