Powerpuff Girls Pens

Whilst queuing up in Primark to purchase the Mr’s basket load of socks and pants, I spied out of the corner of my eye the last remaining Powerpuff Girls pens. They were reduced from £2.00 to 50p each. Happy days!

Galactic Clockwork Wars

A rummage through the rather sparse 10p toy box in the Salvation Army charity shop this week resulted in six Star Wars figures, two Battlestar Galactica figures, and a The Black Hole figure. I also found a Playmobil and similar figure, plus A Clockwork Orange by Penguin Books from their Film Classics series. Film classic finds all round!

About A Keyper

I had a small jackpot today from my charity shop rummaging. I found a lovely condition plush Keyper for 10 pence. 10p! I also bought the purple Flufflings I had my eye on a couple of weeks back, a sweet little rag story book and two paperback novels (About A Boy by Nick Horby and Dodger by Terry Pratchett).

On My Way With Farting Flufflings

I came back with an excellent selection of toys and books from the Lions charity shop last Saturday, including a full set of Sesame Street “On My Way” books, a Jack and Jill book from 1971, and various soft toys including a farting Grumples, a moaning Flufflings, a talking Hoobs, an accident prone Mr Men, a tiny Furby, and a baby Puppy Surprise!

Powerpuff Girls

Whilst out charity shopping in Westcliff last weekend we also popped into Argosy Toys where I found two Powerpuff Girls figures at half price (£2.50 each). As soon as we returned home I ordered the third one from eBay (£5.99) which swiftly turned up on Thursday.

Dress-Up Goat Busters

An unexpected trip down the road to buy brushes for broom handles at the weekend resulted in this random selection of items from the Lions Club charity shop. I found a Palace Pets cat, a My Little Pony, a dress-up doll, a panda purse, Ghostbusters, and the craziest duvet set I have ever seen!

Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Cupcakes!

From time to time I pop into Smyths toy store (I know, I know, it’s so unlike me), and came across the current re-issued version of Cupcakes. I was most restrained and only bought two (the larger two dolls below). Then, I some how wound back up in Smyths earlier this year only time find miniature versions on sale too! This time I bought four. But wanted more.

Look In Mr Fraggle Gran

I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).

Care Bears & Rainbow Brite

Look what I found on my way home from work this week! Four little Care Bears plushes and a poseable character from Rainbow Brite (Shy Violet), all for 50p each. The bears are from 2004, but the Rainbow Brite figure is an actual 1980’s toy, which I almost never find these days.

Subbuteo Score!

Found in the Salvation Army charity shop this afternoon on my way home from work, Subbuteo from 1991 for £3.00! Unfortunately the fabric pitch was missing, but there was a scoreboard set and pamphlet in its place. I also found an additional England team for £1.00.
