Toys 'n stuff I find on Flickr. It's all good. Thanks for stopping by! :D
This is Dimples Teddy from the Build-a-Bear Worshop toys in McDonald's Happy Meals. Unfortunately, poor Dimples ate too many Happy Meals and therefore gained too many... er... dimples.
The CRTC requires that a portion of this photo include Canadian content, so I threw in the Tim Horton's bag for good measure. Whether Timmy's is actually Canadian anymore is up for debate.
Inspired by the twisted antics of Professional Recreationalist's FAUX set.
I don't think his nose translates too well into stuffed toy. He's a daily reminder to swear more often. :)
I need some alone time now. So beat it. And take your Eeyore with you.
The Incredible Hulk Pinata
Oodles and oodles of fun, you too can rush out and get a big green scary man to whack around at your next birthday party. Great stress reliever and *way* cheaper than professional therapy.
Wul thunk ya. Thunk ya vury mutch.
Personality Board Game
I don't think I've ever played this Milton Bradley board game, but it sure looks vintage. I was more a "Twister" or "Operation" fan myself.
Mattel's Hot Wheels,
what's not to like? You could haul your whole collection over to your friend's house in that convenient red suitcase. No messy wires, no batteries, no AC outlets and no weak wi-fi signals to worry about. :)
Pichakoo...? God bless you.
Maybe I'm too old now, but I never understood the whole Pokemon craze. I can barely pronounce the names, let alone distinguish them apart.
Here's another 80s classic. Heman and the Masters of the Universe. I owned Castle Greyskull and my brother had Snake Mountain. Ah, those were the days. When a hunk of molded plastic brought so much joy.
Hey! Didn't the Garden Gnome
do this first? I think I'm getting deja-vu (which would be most appropriate in Paris).
Ah Legoland...never been there. I drove by it from Sea World in San Diego, but didn't stop. Apparently if you're an adult and you show up without
a child aged 8 or younger, the FBI opens up a file on you.
The leader of the Transformers, Optimus Prime was super cool. If he was running for president, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat!
If you were a boy growing up in the 80s, you idolized Transformers. I know I did!
OK, that's bizarre. Definitely not the way I remember Bert and Ernie growing up as a kid!
Lookie what I found in my Kinder Egg! When you lift his arm, his mouth displays the gas price. Too bad real gas prices aren't child's play. :(
