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 found quite a varied selection of dolls during January including Action Man, Baby Annabelle, Barbie, Betty Spaghetty, Bratz, Brave, Chatsters, Cocodels, Disney Princess, Frozen, LOL Surprise, Lots To Love, My Scene, Polly Pocket, Shimmer & Shine and Sofia The First. My favourite find has to be Beauty & The Beast “Adam/Ken”, who is far more beautiful with his mask on!
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!
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)!
I found several things over the course of this week in various charity shops including Inside Out, Lego Movie Happy Meal, Top Trumps Angel, TT Doctor Who and TT Cars, My Little Pony, Miles From Tomorrowland, Moshi Monsters, Crazy Bones, Zelf, Elsa, Monster High, Ever After High, Wacky Races, Meg & Mog, and Little Miss Tiny.
