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).
I came back with over 200 little items at my last carboot rummage, mostly in Moshi Monsters! I also found a few fast food toys, some other little figures (including Littlest Pet Shop, Puppy In My Pocket, Hello Kitty, Crazy Bones and Disney), a Cupcake Surprise doll (with hat!) and a super Magic Roundabout plush. It took an absolute age to wash this lot!
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.
I found all sorts of little bits and pieces last week whilst charity shopping, including My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, Moshi Monsters, Trolls, Zomlings, Doctor Who: Daleks, a Fireman Sam “Norman” figure, a Monsters University figure, a FurReal Friends purple kitty toy, some little Disney kitchen items (these were all over the place), and a Littlest Pet Shop wagon. The Cupcake Surprise doll and Barbie dog I bought from the charity shop next door after I’d finished volunteering…
I came back with a selection of little odds and sods from my trip into Rayleigh this week. My favourite find is the creepy rabbit clock with moving eyes and ears. I found two G3 and one G4 My Little Pony plus a Cutie Crew figure, a Cupcake Surprise (but no surprise she hatless), two Lalaloopsy pets, and various little figures including characters from Disney Princess, Moshi Monsters, Roary the Racing Car, Finding Nemo and Waybuloo.
I found all sorts of things last week! On Wednesday I found the complete boxset of Friends, Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack and a few little toys (including Littlest Pet Shop, Cupcake Surprise and Ever After High). Then on Saturday I bought lots more little toys, including Zelfs, Blythe, My Little Pony and golden Moshi Monsters.
From time to time I pop into Smyths toy store (I know, I know, it’s so unlike me), and came across the current re-issued version of Cupcakes. I was most restrained and only bought two (the larger two dolls below). Then, I some how wound back up in Smyths earlier this year only time find miniature versions on sale too! This time I bought four. But wanted more.
