|Doll shelf at Tuesday Morning: Fashion dolls and play doll outfits.|

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!

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!

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.

I just got back from a weekend in Toronto, so it's time for another retro week post!

when a button on their base is pressed.

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.

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!

Every time I say I'm not going to pick up any more Funko figures I end up eating my words! This time it was the nostalgic Star Wars joy that I got from watching Rogue One that led to my bringing home this pair.
Since these figures are fairly standard POPs I won't be doing a full review, but I did want to share some photos.

Just a quick post to let the US-based readers know that the Tween Scene dolls seem to be on clearance in some markets. At my local store they were reduced to $11 - 66% off the original price!

The particular outfit that I picked up is called "Rockstar Rage". It includes 6 pieces: a t-shirt, dress, pair of socks and pair of shoes. The dress is faux leather, the top has a shiny pink body with leopard print sleeves, and the socks are camoflage. The shoes are pink converse-style and made of the same soft plastic as the doll's default footwear.
The clothing quality is in-line with the default outfits that the dolls arrive in and fits the doll (in this case, Dhara) well.
But enough talk, let's look at some photos!

Dollarama is a Canadian discount chain, and while I was staying in Toronto in the fall I came across a few Mega Bloks sets for $3.00 CDN. Since I've regularly seen these selling for around $7.00 USD, I couldn't make myself pass one up, So I picked up Adéwalé from the Assassin's Creed line.
These sets include a simple base with a few decorative accessories plus one of the standard-style block figures. In this case, the base included the floor piece, an upright mock-wood wall, a fern, and a barrel. In addition, the figure itself included removable clothing and two weapons.
Let's take a closer look!

January already! Even allowing that I was away from home for three months at the end of the year, I still can't believe how quickly 2016 seems to have flown by!
Since we're now into the first week of 2017, it seemed like a good time to look back on the dolls and figures that entered and exited the posse.
The biggest group of arrivals came over the summer, when I went on a bit of a playline-size buying frenzy:

H4H Surjan (the lone older purchase), Corelle Cecile, and Las Amigas Carol
