More Little Goodies
In the last post, with the shopping carts, I got an idea to put together a toy store. I'm sure I have enough toys here to get started, but more is always better. I wasn't really looking to buy more toys right away, but that decision changed when I stopped by Michael's yesterday. They have a new line of charms that features doll miniatures. They sell for $1.99 each. I had a coupon, so everything I purchased was 20% off.
Here are the eight charms I purchased. Not all of them are toys, but they are all perfect for 1/6 scale.
L to R: Bubble gum machine, glass of pink lemonade (my guess) with a straw and a sliced orange for garnish, a record player, fish bowl with a fish. If I was doing a carnival, I would probably buy a lot of the fish bowls. They are what I remember the most from the local carnivals.
L to R: Bat and ball, hair dryer, toy airplane and headphones.
I put the kids in the picture so you could see the scale of the items.
I found two other interesting items.
A set of Indian sculptures.
They will look nice as decorations in one of the homes.
Next up are teeny tiny dinosaurs. We used to have a museum here in Morristown with a large dinosaur display. These would have shown up in the gift store of the museum. Now they will be used in the toy store.
Perfect scale for our little ones.
I'm hoping to get some time soon to play with the dollies. Maybe by the end of this week.
