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!
All kinds of figures! I found a bundle of Zomlings with houses, several DC and Marvel action figures, Moshi Monsters, Skylanders, Monster High and loads of other things (101 Dalmatians, Cheeki Mees, Crazy Bones, Dizzy Dancers, Glimmies, Lion King, Little Green Men, Little People, Lock Stars, My Little Pony, Octonauts, Pocahontas, Pokemon, Rusty Rivets, Shimmer & Shine, Terraria and Waybuloo). I also found a few as yet to ID toys and a few loose odds and sods.
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!
All kinds of plushies and minis last week! Some are keepers, whilst others will make it into my shop. My favourite find is Hotel Transylvania “Murray” by far! Amongst other toys, I found lots more Moshi Monsters and Trolls, several fast food toys, In The Night Garden figures and a G3 My Little Pony.
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 found a ton of little bits and pieces whilst searching some charity shops the other side of “the big town” (Southend!) at the beginning of the month. I had so many little items in one shop the shop lady literally shovelled them into a One Direction shopping bag off the counter (I didn’t notice it was a 1D bag until I got home)! My favourite finds were the Power Rangers figure, Furby and Lizzie Borden Head Knockers.
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 a selection of smaller items whilst charity shopping this week, including Powerpuff Girls, Trolls, Fifi & The Flowertots, G4 My Little Pony, Crazy Bones, Moshi Monsters, Chelsea (from Barbie), Transformers, Little Mermaid “Sebastian”, Glimmies, some boots, the front half of a Polly Pocket: Clip N Lock dress, and a G4 My Little Pony headband.
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 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 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)!
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 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.
I found a few toys in my local charity shops towards the end on March (Kermit, VIP Pets, Moshi Monsters, Barbie, Zelfs, Party Pop Teenines & a Lego Movie 2 Happy Meal toy) and a Madonna CD. I can’t remember exactly when I bought the Lexicon game as it was hidden in my desk drawer to stop the little cat from eating the elastic band keeping it all together (it was recent though)!
The mister and I popped out on Saturday for a mooch around town (there may also have been cider) and I came back with all sorts of goodies! I found a Mr Tickle money pot, two Lalaloopsy dolls, a pink Frizzys, The Graffalo, a Puppy Surprise talking baby, two more Furbys, a Moshi Monster, Masters Of The Universe and Fighting Fantasy books, and a Rubik’s Octagon.
Half term week meant lots of pottering around and lots of charity shop finds. It’s a good job I am about to put up some more shelves as I’ve run out of room! I found Sweet Valley High, Lalaloopsy, Sweet Secrets, Furbys, Moshi Monsters, Glimmies, Ladybird and Brambly Hedge books, Puppy Surprise, Equestria Girls, Monster High, Ever After High & Mr Men.
