Trolls, Trolls & More Trolls...

I found these trolls a few weeks ago at the yard sales. The lady remembered me from her last sale quite awhile ago and said she saved them for me and told me she was hoping I'd show up. She called me, "The Troll Lady". Not exactly my ideal nickname but definitely sums up my troll collection addiction.

These are 2005 Dam trolls. 

I know I already have this troll (Russ Penelope Princess Troll) but she saved it for me so I couldn't hurt her feelings and besides...when have I been known to leave a troll behind...

Speaking of never leaving a troll behind--my troll collection is huge! I've set up my shelves differently and I'm also low on space to spread them out. I have trolls on shelves, in a cabinet, in boxes, hanging on the wall, in a 33 gallon bin full to the top (no joke). I have trolls on top of trolls on top of trolls...Here's a few I've got displayed out in the open...

I know what you're thinking but don't fret...I'll keep collecting trolls until I stop breathing. There is always somewhere to stick them. I'd fill every nook and cranny of my home with them if I find that many. So keep checking in for more troll finds. What can I say...they make me happy. Have you ever noticed that each and every one of them has a bright smile on their faces?

Trolls: Bitsy Bears

Here's 2 trolls I found Saturday.

The Bitsy Bear is harder to find. I have another one which I've shown on this blog. In case you want to know more about Bitsy Bears they were made by Tyco in 1991-1992. Each has their own wind up action. This one's arms twist around in circles really fast. Her name is Swivels Bear. The arm action is because she originally had a hula-hoop. 

            Swivels Bear - "Wind me up and I really hula!"

The Ace Gemstone troll is common to find. I find these most often.

EXCITING NEWS...Dark Horse Comics Releases Good Luck Troll Mystery Boxes

Good Luck Trolls were originally created in 1959 by Danish fisherman and woodcutter Thomas Dam.

Good Luck Trolls “mystery box” assortments are a new collectibles merchandise program by Dark Horse Comics under a license granted by Dam Things, who hold all rights to the works of Thomas Dam. The mystery box was introduced to the market July 25, 2012. 

 The first collection offers up fifteen different versions of the figures in various colors and with unique surface treatments, including metallic, flocked, black-light sensitive, glitter, and glow-in-the-dark.

 Mystery box (also known as “blind box”) trading figures are essentially the same product, varying in decoration and materials, and sold randomly out of sealed packages. Some of the figures are common to every counter display, whereas “chase” figures are much harder to come by. 

The Good Luck Trolls are presented in a counter display unit holding fifteen individual blind boxes. Each Troll is packaged in an opaque foil bag inside its box to prevent tampering or viewing prior to purchase.

Dark Horse also created a one-time limited edition of 1,500 green-body Good Luck Trolls with snow-white hair that are sensitive to black light. They were sold exclusively at the Dark Horse booth at Comic-Con International in San Diego, July 12–15, 2012.

I can't wait to get my hands on these...

New Troll Finds + A Love Notes Toy

Here's some fun stuff I found today at the yard sales...

1975 Dam Baby
 2005 Dam Troll
 Not sure what this is so I'll just call it a Tiki Troll...
 1978 Mattel Love Notes Raccoon. I like it. It looks very vintage compared to stuffed animals you see now-a-days. I found an old newspaper ad (from the 1970's) about Mattel Love Notes. They made dolls, the raccoon, a bear...maybe more??? You press the circles on its body to play a song.

 Stay tuned...
