Discount Shopping Adventures, May 2017

It's been a while since I checked out the local discount chains (in this case Tuesday Morning and Big Lots), so last week I decided to pay them a visit.  I took some photos of the toy aisle offerings and thought I'd share them with you guys!

Diya in the Garden

Last summer I unboxed Carpatina Diya, then the newest doll from Carpatina's slim 18" doll line. Since I'd opened her on a rainy day and then was away from home for nearly 4 months, I never got around to taking some proper outdoor photos of her.  So today I decided to remedy that!

So it's time for a day of Star Wars puns! Whether they make you smile or make you roll your eyes, I hope you have a good one!

Random Toy Sightings: The Remains of a Dozen Easter Parties

When I took my dog out on Monday morning, I found a park full of leftover plastic eggs and bunnies that were left behind by the Easter crowds. I thought I'd share a few photos of the festive detritus.

Retro Week: Random Toys of the 80s

I just got back from a weekend in Toronto, so it's time for another retro week post!
Does anyone remember what these toys were called?

A Random Kristoff Sighting

While I was walking the dog yesterday, I came across a random mini figure of Frozen's Kristoff lying along the road in two pieces.  Naturally I took a photo, so now we have a sequel to The Lonely Doll Shoe and The Random Green Army Man.

I left him where he was in the hopes that whatever child dropped him might come back and take him home.

Yet Another John Constantine Mini-Figure

I was reading comic book reviews when I noticed a mention that an animated film version of Justice League Dark had been produced. Being a bit of a fan of the comics, I went to check it out - and discovered that the deluxe edition came with a vinyl figure of John Constantine. So of course I bought that one. Let's take a look!
