I continue to shop at the thrift stores since there have been no good estate sales for me to visit and tag sale season hasn’t started yet. This week when I was there I noticed a pile of new in the box toys from the 1990’s. I had a feeling some of them were good. I had to look them up on my phone in order to figure out which ones to buy. These are the ones I picked up.
The first is a Neptune Bubble Starcastle from 1997. It has small characters similar to Polly Pocket. Someone on eBay has this listed for over $200. I haven’t seen any sold for nearly that much. I put mine up for $50. This 101 Dalmations locket play set also reminded me of Polly Pocket because of the size of the figures. I put this set up for $20.
This next toy was made by the same company that made Pound Puppies. It is called Pound Ocean which doesn’t sound nearly as nice as Pound Puppies. It features sea animals in families. This set is a dolphin family. It seems like a pretty rare one so I also put it up for $50. I also picked up a Pokemon compact play set which is new in the package. It doesn’t sell for much so I am pairing it with another similar play set that I have been saving.
Hanging in one of the bags on the wall for $2.99 was this set of Hello Kitty salt and pepper shakers. Much of the newer Hello Kitty items don’t have much value but this set from 2000 seems to be selling for about $30. I also picked up this Jadeite reamer and measuring cup set. It is not marked Fire King or Anchor Hocking. I don’t know whether it has to be in order to be Jadeite. The color is the same though.
Two more toys I bought were a Count Von Count plush doll and a Howard Wolowitz Pop Funko figure. I consistently sell Count Von Count dolls for about $14. The Pop Funko seems to be selling for about $40 but since my box is worn, I may get less.
Those are the highlights from this week. Is it spring yet? I could really use a tag sale about now.
