I found quite a varied array of plush toys towards the end of October and into November (before Lockdown pt.2), including a gigantic vintage Snoopy, plus Boobah, Care Bears, Clangers, Creature Comforts, Hatchimals, Lady and the Tramp, Maisy, Paw Patrol, Rainbow, Teeny Beanie Boos, Toy Story and a slightly scary ZingZillas bag!
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.
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!
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.
Plush finds from December include Care Bears, Chicken Run, Cuddle Crew, Despicable Me, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Monsters Inc., Moshi Monsters, Pikmi Pops, Sesame Street, Vampirina, Wallace & Gromit and Winnie The Pooh.
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.
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!
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 bought myself some more original Care Bears a couple of weeks ago from eBay after buying six others in June. Arriving in the post were four poseable Care Bears, four miniatures Care Bears and one poseable Wuzzle. Happy days!
I rarely buy second-hand toys, preferring the pot luck of charity shops, but a couple of weeks ago I went a bit mad a bought a My Pet Monster and a group of Care Bears from eBay. Monster turned up first, then last Monday these guys turned up at work!
Look what I found on my way home from work this week! Four little Care Bears plushes and a poseable character from Rainbow Brite (Shy Violet). The bears are from 2004, but the Rainbow Brite figure is an actual 1980’s toy, which I almost never find these days.
I found three items in charity shops in Rayleigh on Saturday, including a Care Bears pomander, a Once Upon A Zombie doll, and Educating Rita.
