Doll Sized Finds: Some very cool goodies!!!

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.

Here’s a pic of Shivan holding it so you can see the size in proportion to a doll:

My next find at the same place was a mini ping-pong set:

This also says World’s Smallest on it, but it’s not made by the same company. Hmmmm…I couldn’t pass it up though for $4.99!

Kanani and Alya thought it would be fun to set it up in the kitchen…

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.

Till the next time! Keep your “doll eyes” peeled for goodies in your area.

Etsy Find: Nuclear Needle Arts

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I love Etsy.  And I especially love discovering a new Etsy seller!  I’m a big believer in supporting small business too, so to me, Etsy is a win/win.  I recently purchased an adorable set of pj’s from an Etsy seller I hadn’t tried before, and I wanted to share my thoughts on them with you!

I’m a sucker for doll pajamas, and I have a bunch of them.  When I saw these online, I was immediately interested and favorited them.  Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore, I just had to have them!  So glad I did too, they are adorable.

Doesn’t Jenny look adorable in these? The set included the top and bottoms. Both pieces are very well made and fit perfectly. I love the design on the shirt!  In case you can’t read it, it says “Wakey, wakey, eggs ‘n bakey”.  🙂

The material for the bottoms couldn’t be anymore ideal:

The shirt closes in the back with Velcro and the bottoms are pull on style with an elastic waist.

The shop I purchased this set from is Nuclear Needle Arts.  Kelly offers a wide variety of doll clothes to fit multiple sizes of dolls as well as other items.  I was very impressed with all of the different items she offered, she does vintage style clothing as well as shoes.  Looking for doll sized shoe lasts?  She has those too!

Be sure to check out her shop, so many fun things to look at.  I know I will be stopping by to shop again!

Loved this emoji themed clip on and thought it would be adorable on a doll bed. I very carefully clipped off the part that was holding the clip on. I think I got this at Target, but I’m not 100% positive, sorry! If I remember correctly it was around $2

Target also has these cool little bag clip ons, great for holding change or lip balm. They have them in several styles and colors, and vary in price, but all of the ones I have come across have been $8 or less.

Dollar General had this cute little container of Vaseline Lip balm for $2. This is the perfect size for your dolls bathroom. And the lip balm isn’t bad either!

Dollar Tree has these adorable owl shaped lip balm containers. How can you beat $1?! I thought it would make an awesome decoration for in one of the doll rooms. And what is it about lip balm containers being the perfect size for doll house accessories?

Also at Dollar Tree, I ran across these individual sized salt and pepper shakers.  If you read Brandy’s Happy Home, you may recall seeing her use these as crystal drinking glasses (with a few modifications).  I plan on using these as candy jars for the doll bakery, I just need to go through my bead stash and see what works the best in them.  Dollar Tree always has the coolest stuff!

When American Girl announced their new releases in January, I fell in love with the Fun and Games Sleepover Set. However, since I’m not buying from AG at the moment, I had a problem. My favorite part was the little Uno set. To Ebay!!! I found a seller who not only had a cute set of miniature Uno cards, but two other things I could use as well.

In addition to the Uno cards, I found a mini Barrel Of Monkeys game and a pair of shoes that fit Wellie Wishers! I was pleased to find these items, especially the shoes. And the seller combined the shipping, so an added bonus.

Perfect fit!  In case you are interested in any of these items, you can find them at Butterfly Kisses Doll Clothes on Ebay.  Super fast shipping too, with an excellent rating, so you can’t go wrong!
