Figures found this month so far included three Doctor Who figures to add to my collection, Fabuland (also for me), Lalaloopsy (me too!), Minecraft, Paw Patrol, Scooby Doo, Smart Dog, Smiggle (for me again), Soldier Force, Timmy Time, Top Wing, Trolls and Yo-Kai Watch. I also found five very well loved Ladybird books!
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.
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 a large selection of figures, animals and other toys in January (many for resale). Vintage toys include Polly Pocket and Power Rangers. Movie and TV toys include Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Bugs Life, DC Comics, Emoji, Marvel, Minions Postman Pat, Rusty Rivets and Toy Story. Other toys include Animal Jam, Baby Secrets, Disney, Furby, Genie Girls, Glimmies, Hatchimals, Hot Wheels, Lalaloopsy, Littlest Pet Shop, Melody Train, Minecraft, My Little Pony, Moshi Monsters, Palace Pets, Paw Patrol, Planet Protectors, Puppy In My Pocket, Puppy Palz, Ring Pop Puppies, Shopkins and Sylvanian Families. Phew!
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!
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 had some luck with vintage toys whilst out charity shopping this week (1980-90’s), with Girl’s World, an original Furby, a giant Sweetie Pups, Tasmanian Devil and Dennis the Menace. I also found a few more Animal Jams, PJ Masks car and figure, Paw Patrol, Spongebob Square Pants, Scooby Doo, Doctor Who, Zelfs, Despicable Me Minions, Ddung, Baby Bratz, Lalaloopsy, Pokemon, Winnie The Pooh, My Little Pony, Chubby Puppies, Pez, In The Night Garden, Peanuts and Dr Octopus from Spider-Man.
A jaunt around some different charity shops uncovered a surfing Snoopy, Monster High, and various little figures (Zag Heroez, Lalaloopsy, Moshi Monsters, Squinkies, Polly Pocket, Twozies, Genie Girls, Freddo Treasures and Scooby Doo). I also found three books (Hellraiser, The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshoppers Feast and Our Friend the Policeman) and six LP’s of dubious quality.
I found three excellent vintage items whilst charity shopping this week: the yellow Playboot by Matchbox with accessories, a Sky Dancers launcher and a Polly Pocket case. I also found a Cupcake Surprise (with hat!), five Hello Kitty figures, one Shopkins Shoppies, one Enchantimals, plush and mini Moshi Monsters, two McDonalds Furbys, a Lalaloopsy pet, a Littlest Pet Shop crab, Magiki Ladybirds and a set of keys (possibly Disney)!
