Here are a few of my favorite toys that are lurking in various corners of the house.  I have
posed them here together for a quick photos.  You may recognize some of them.

The big guy all the way in the back is my son's ATAT model from Star Wars. On top of him are a
couple of little robot toys that I picked up somewhere and a tiny mouse that came in a Burger King
Kid's Meal. The Hello Kitty in the box is one of those ceramic banks that you paint (I haven't painted her
yet.) There is an Easter Sheep, a Captain Jack Sparrow toy,(a plastic rock is sitting in front of him)
and Pika Chu from the Pokemon cartoon series.
Yoda, a Beanie Baby sheep, some little Hello Kitty Lego figures, a couple of Angry Bird toys,
Pippin and Merry, a cow, my Winnie the Pooh from my first trip to Disney World, a couple of tiny,
yellow, rubber ducks, a Domo Kun figure,a deck of Star Trek playing cards in the box, a Dalek bank,
a set of mini Ninja Turtles, an orange Duncan YoYo, the red monster from the Bugs Bunny
Cartoons,( Gossamer was his name) and Garfield.

Too much?


What a great collection! :o) I never would have recognised Jack, much to my shame. I was very fond of Hello Kitty in my early teens, when nearly nobody knew it - early 80s, I suppose. I fascinated the heck out of my niece (6) recently when I told her I liked Hello Kitty when I was small, and showed her an old and nearly disintegrated plastic item proving it.

That is so cool. I love it when someone is surprised like that. Not everyone realizes old long Kitty has been around. I have always thought she was adorable and being a cat lover, she was a natural for me.
Yes! Same for me! :o) And my parents reacted in the same way to it I do nowadays to the overly pink PrincessLillifee stuff which is all the rage for little German girls. (Be warned - the link leads to a dangerous amount of pink images, mindbleach might be necessary afterwards. Do proceed at your own risk. *g* )
LOL Wow! That is a serious amount of pink-ness. It's almost painful. hehehe
That is rather an overload of pink, but she looks a rather jolly princess.
Love the ATAT. We have one of those (somewhat the worse for wear) tucked away in a knee wall somewhere. I don't think we've thrown away any of the Star Wars toys, even the ones that look like they lost one too many battles. :)
We are very, very, bad at tossing things out. I'm afraid we are related to pack rats in some way so I have most of my son's old treasures and and great many of my own.
Too much? Not at all. :)

Yes! I could have done an all sheep post for that but I decided to mix it up a bit. : )
Too much?

If anything, I'd say not enough! What a fun collection. :)
Why, thank you! There is more, far too much more, but for now, I think I have subjected everyone to enough of it. lol
What an extensive and interesting collection. Pooh and the Dalek were the only items I recognised. Just as well you identified the others.
I thought that there might be some that weren't well known and so I figured I should explain them. : )
I think that "mouse" might be Babe the pig. I recall getting one in a kids' meal. We have a Pooh like that, too.
LOL The mouse just might be Babe the pig! I'd not noticed before. Poor thing! I've given it a complex likely.
The Pooh was purchased at Disney World the first year that they opened. He is a very old bear but I wouldn't trade him for anything.
