All these were in my mailbox. What a fun mail day! When I bought the Dam Jogger troll I thought he was a 1977. He looks like one. But, to my surprise, under his chin it says "Made in Denmark Dam 1985". The Stocking is very cute. I have 4 more Troll Christmas stockings (all different) to show you all soon. And, finally...the witch troll is a cutie as well.
My husband bought me this. I just love it. It's got the coolest looking wizard troll on the package. Also, you are suppose to put the troll in water and a trinket "surprise" will magically appear. Wonder what's inside...it's too pretty to find out.
These look just like Nyform trolls but they are plush. Certainly unique. They each have a tag that says "Troll" and tells a troll story. It says they cost $17.95 apiece on the other side of the tag.

This one is definitely unique. It's a Pinecone Troll. She even has a tail.
I have other troll-like items to show you in the future.
On another note...I have many 1986 and 2005 Dam Troll Dolls and will be showing you the coolest video of them very soon. Since there is so many, I think you all will really enjoy it...
This has the same facial features as the one I just showed you all marked "Pee Wee". But, she is unmarked...unless her markings are hidden. I can't undress her to see. She has on crochet clothes sewn to her body and I am not sure if the previous owner made them or if they are original.
This is a 1960s Pee Wee Troll Doll made by Uneeda. I believe there is a mixed controversy to whether these should be classified as trolls even though they are made by Uneeda - a Troll making company who made Wishniks. She has pretty baby blue eyes.
I don't know a whole lot about these troll "dolls". I know they are vintage and made in Korea. Are they really trolls? What are they called? I've researched and came up with nothing at all. Feel free to let me know if you know about them.
I wanted this porcupine troll more than anything. And, guess what? I lost it on eBay. I'm so disappointed. It's definitely a one-of-a-kind super rare troll animal.
Since I can't have it, I'm putting up a picture. That way all of you and I can look at it anytime we want to.
Look at the details in his legs and the rosy nose and cheeks on him. I'm heartbroken...
But, I'll get over it. And, I'll be bringing you more of my own collection shortly.
I have some more new ones coming in the mail and have 1000's more to show you all of the ones I already own.
Let me know in the comments section if you like the troll videos I made. If so, I'll make even more.

This troll was the first really vintage troll doll I found in my hometown. All the others I found in my town were 80s and 90s and newer. It's REALLY hard for me to find the older ones here.
She is unmarked and has the most beautiful spiral green eyes. They are amazing! Her clothing is in bad shape though and has been taped and stapled. I left her the way I found her. I usually do leave them the way they are unless they are in pieces. Although, sometimes I have to sudden urge to make a one-of-a-kind troll. That's a fun project!
This Dam bank came to me headless - well, the head was completely unattached from the body. I've attached it back. Her overalls are broken and she still needs some work done to her. And yet, with so much wrong I can find so much beauty in her. Look at her glass eyes - they look like they are gazing into the distance.
