Hello, I'm new!

Postby nisey.26 » Thu Jan 07, 2016 5:28 pm

Hello,

I was trying to google my old favorite toys (Littlest Pet Shops of course) and kept coming across the newer style ones with the bobble head style, so it finally occurred to me to try add "vintage", and I couldn't be more excited with all the results I came across! I used to LOVE these toys when I was a kid. I always searched for them at garage sales with my mom. Now I'm excited and want to dig my old toys out of storage. I would like to make a little display of them definitely.

(I had no idea this was like a thing, but thinking about it, they were so cute, I'm not surprised). Anyway.. hello all! :)

Thank you! I certainly might, I seem to remember a few pieces I tragically lost (pre-ebay) and was absolutely gutted... It would be fabulous to find them again! :D

thank you all!

it might be awhile because my old boxes are in my parents' storage unit while they are moving, and it is stuffed to the brim so they are inaccessible :cry:

i did find one box and it was mostly just the little food and water accessories. but i did use sarafina's guide to match them to the sets and it was enormously helpful! it made me want to track down the boxes, i definitely had "fancy curls carousel playset", "water garden kitties", "zoo baby bobcat with mountain den", "zoo baby chimp", "mommy deer with frisky fawn", "tickled pink kitty", among others! :)
