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.
