I found lot of little figures towards the end of October into November (before the shops shut again). I’m quite taken with the two Star Wars glowing helmets, so will be keeping them! I also found TaleSpin, Disney’s Robin Hood, Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones, Soldier Force and Transformers (to name but a few). Most toys are for resale.
I found a whole bundle of fast food goodies at the end of November, including 102 Dalmatians, Adventure Time, Angry Birds, Animaniacs, Barbie, Despicable Me, Freddo, Furby, Lego Movie, Mario Bros, Mr Men, Noddy, Peanuts, Peter Rabbit, Pokemon, Scooby Doo, Secret Life of Pets, Shrek, Smurfs, Snoopy, Sooty, Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenie Beanies, The Amazing World of Gumball, Tom & Jerry and Winnie The Pooh. Phew!
FrankenTigger is the most amazing find! I may keep him for my own, at least for a while… I also found Bush Baby World, Clangers, Fingerlings, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Home, Littlest Pet Shop, Mr Men, Pound Puppies, Puppy Surprise, Roland Rat, Silly Slammers, Teenie Beanies, Thomas Little and Zhu Zhu Pets.
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 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.
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.
I came back with an excellent selection of toys and books from the Lions charity shop last Saturday, including a full set of Sesame Street “On My Way” books, a Jack and Jill book from 1971, and various soft toys including a farting Grumples, a moaning Flufflings, a talking Hoobs, an accident prone Mr Men, a tiny Furby, and a baby Puppy Surprise!
I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).
