Scubidu Surprise Packs

While discovering Scubidu Italian Charmkins I stumbled upon the small surprise mystery packs. These are similar to the surprise packages you can find today containing a blind bag Littlest Pet Shop, Legos, and other toys. I found both of these for a great price so I was happy to snatch them up. I have to open them since the curiosity may kill me, but here they are still unopened. 

I am also very excited about a package on its way from Germany right now. I won't give away anything until it arrives, but it's something I never thought I would ever own, so I am biting my nails in anticipation until it gets here.

A few new additions

Today another package came in containing two MOC sets I found for a great price! One is the European Variant of the Slippy Seal, and the second is an MOC set of Pinto Pony. I also got another package containing a few more additions to my Puppy in my Pocket collection.

Italian Charmkins, Scubidu

A few weeks ago I discovered that Hasbro released a line of Italian Charmkins called Scubidu. I was so excited to find a boxed set that included tons of colored charms that looked just like the characters I've come to love from the Charmkins toy line. There were even a few that I had never seen before including a shy turtle, and a cute deer. The set included string that I called gimp at summer camp. It really reminded me of some of the plastic charms I collected as a kid.

Supper time Guppies

The Supper time guppies set is one that I never owned as a kid. I was able to find this set MOC, but ended up selling it off before moving. I regret selling it, but was so excited when I found this one in a lot on eBay. It was complete and in great condition. These adorable guppies sit on little plastic rods and revolve around the small sandcastle.

Fairy Winkles Pocket Jewelry Box

Turns out I spoke too soon last week. While I thought my fairy winkles collection was complete it turns out I was missing one set I thought I had. This hide n' play jewelry box came in a few variations I'm still hunting for but here is the most common variation. Here is Grins Fairy Winkes and tiny Dimples wee winkle in their own little jewelry box. 

I'm hoping later this week I can get more colorful paper for my photos. I am really missing having a cute decorative backdrop.

Kitty Be Mine Necklace

Today a parcel arrived containing a piece I've been hoping to find for the past year. I was really hoping to find one MOC but I am so lucky I stumbled upon this one. The Kitty Be Mine necklace is a set from the Jewel Pets series from Littlest Pet Shop. This sweet kitty sits in a bassinet that hangs from a golden ribbon. This pink kitty was so adorable I got a bit carried away photographing her.

Littlest Pet Shop Snapshots

Since my entire collection is currently sitting in an attic, I'm very fortunate that I photographed my sets before. Since its Friday I figured it was time for Flashback Friday. The following sets are some of my favorites from my collection. The first is a set I know I owned as a child. A very special friend of mine found all the pieces and sent it to me for Christmas. I was overjoyed and it was an amazing gift! This set is the Ice Palace Ponies:

The next set is the Littlest Pet Shop Tea Set. As a kid I loved tea parties. My sister and I would dress up our cat, dog, hamsters, or just the nearest stuffed animals and invite them for a cup and a tea cake. I never owned this set as a kid, but my love for tea now just made me fall in love with it. It was produced the first time with detachable figures and then recalled. I wish I had that set, but this is the second one that was made.

The next two sets are from the newborn families collection. When I started collecting again last year I saw these and knew I had to find them. I didn't realize they were a bit more sparse, but two wonderful collectors sold me these two. The Fox family is missing the food bowl, which I later found but is not photographed. The second set is the Mommy and baby deer. I love both of these sets to pieces!

I couldn't help myself and had to take a few more pictures of this set.

Puppy In My Pocket

One of my favorite toys besides Littlest pet shop as a kid was Puppy in My Pocket. I had the puppy hotel and all my favorite puppies, including one I thought looked like old yeller. It would be a few years before I got my own puppy ( she never fit in my pocket though), so until then I had these. My childhood collection could be anywhere honestly. Sometimes my mom would throw out whole drawers full of things, so very few of my small toys survived. Here are a few of the puppies I've begun collecting again. 

Feeling Nostalgic

Recently I put many of my sets into storage so I do miss getting to look at them each day. These two took a long time to complete. The first is the Mommy Swan with Snuggling Babies set. This one is quite hard to find, and I ended up finding piece by piece. It's still missing one purple collar, but I also have it moc so I am not very worried. The second is the paw print club mail away puppies, kitties and bunnies. I most recently bought the puppies from the sweetest person and I am so happy to finally own them. 
Also recently I sold some of my My Little Pony Collection. I would be lying if I said I didn't regret it a little. I loved restoring each one and trying my luck with curling their hair using colored straws.

This morning while browsing Pinterest I came across a few of my photos showing some of my collections. It was really wonderful and really made my morning. I took a few screenshots to share.
