It’s time for another edition of Doll Sized Finds! I’ve been staying away from thrift stores lately, I am trying to get more to leave the house than is coming in. BUT, I did get out and do a bit of shopping, and my doll eyes are always peeled for something cool, regardless of where I am at.
My first find is a tiny Etch A Sketch!
If you haven’t seen it already, the World’s Smallest line from Hasbro has some pretty cool replicas of full sized items, and I thought it would be cool to have this. I already found the Magic 8 Ball, Duncan YoYo and Polaroid Camera a while ago, but I hadn’t had much luck in finding this piece. Love these mini items–and yes, it works just like a real Etch A Sketch! It was a little pricey at $5.99, but I’ve actually seen items from this line selling for even more at other places, so maybe that was a good price.
The ball is a little big, but the girls said it just made it a little easier to hit it!
Last, but not least, I came across this cool mirror in a craft store:
It’s meant to be used to make a piece of jewelry with, but I don’t think the idea caught on very well as it was on clearance for $2.50. I was even more excited about it when I turned the mirror over:
So pretty! I haven’t decided if I want to trim off the loop at the top where you would attach it to a necklace, or simply glue a gemstone there instead. I need to go through my craft stash and see if I have one the right size. Here’s Abby holding it so you can see how perfect it is.
And…well…I did make a trip into the thrift store one time when I was dropping stuff off. I was excited to find another little root beer mug just like one I found on another trip, so now I have two! I have plans for these, fingers crossed.
And I found these cool little “trays”. Not sure what they are supposed to be for originally, but I thought they would make cool meal trays! The best part of this trip, it was 50% off day, so I got the mug, the trays and three small bowls for our “real” kitchen, and with sales tax I spent a whopping 37 cents! Love a trip like that.
