Troll & Cute Vintage Toys

I've been looking high and low for trolls because I really want to start back collecting a bunch of them again. I haven't had much luck and I've been to thrift shops, flea markets and yard sales. I did find one little fellow though - a Russ Graduate Troll.

I also found a another troll-like toy. This is the third Ooglies I've purchased. This one is a baseball player. They were made in 1997 by Playmates. I haven't put batteries in any of them yet but I researched them and they laugh, their eyes spin and they change color. You just pull on their tail and twist their feet. They get "hyper" and you have to calm them down.

I also found a vintage Japan Iwaisan Doll that squeaks.

Lastly, I found 2 adorable Playskool Nosy Bears. These were made in 1987. They have plastic globes on their noses and when you squeeze their bellies, the items in their nose move around from the air pumped in from their belly. They even made special Easter Nosy Bunnies that had liquid in their noses. I've got the Popcorn one and the popcorn indeed pops about in its nose and a Balloon one. I'm definitely going to buy more of these. They are so cute. 


 Stay tuned for more great finds!
