Goodies This Past Week!

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend?!

Here's what I acquired this week...

 Through ebay, I found another vintage "Let's Play Dolls" book, a look and see book by Wonder Books. Has some cute vintage dolls in it, made in Japan. Not by Froebel Kan, but still lovely nonetheless. What doll collector can resist dolls in scenes? LOL
 Cute story as well.
 One of my favorite scenes in the book. A dolly making a mess!

Then, a long anticipated lot of cuties arrive from Australia! Yay! I was able to get these two from a friend via IG. "nitemarys_yardsale" she has amazing items up for sale so check her IG out!
 Both are vintage IWAI squeak toys. "Queen Baby", marked on the larger one's crown. I've always wanted one of these cuties for my collection. I may decide to just keep one and sell one...



Then, I was able to get this item shipped last week from Japan. I won it through Yahoo Japan, a rare Macoto Takahashi Bento box. His art work is one of my faves. So, when I saw the bento box up for auction, I had to try to get it!
 Vintage used, the artwork on it is still nice and bright. I may use it for my lunch or to keep little treasures. Truly a keeper for sure!

I've been so busy uptown the past few days... First, getting my daughters set up for music lessons over the summer, and then having to take Taby to the SATs exam on Saturday, and of course on Friday, Taby and Tevin went to the GIFF or Guam International Film Festival seminar with two Pixar recruiters!
 The event registration was closed when we got the email from Taby's art teacher. Darn, but, luckily, Tevin knew someone through GIFF, and they were able to register! Taby was thrilled.
 The event basically, showcased two of Guam's very own daughters, who work at Pixar, and are recruiters for Interns to Pixar! They came out to share with college students and high school students interested, on how they have a chance to be interns, at Pixar! Both Tevin and Taby, enjoyed it very much.
 Kim Diaz, in the center, is one of Guam's Daughters, who works at Pixar and recruits for them as well.
 Parting gifts from the seminar. Awesome! Some won the cute Luxo Jr. ball when they answered questions correctly! Lucky.

After Taby's exam Saturday, we went to Agana Shopping Center and took Sara to Giftoria! Yup, I couldn't resist. I caved and bought a Disney character Daisy, tsumtsum plushie, and a "Luminary Tears" wand.
 Love the winky Daisy plush!
 This is the latest release of Luminary Tears Part 3, I believe. Januray 2017. I even got the one pictured on the front of the box!

 It comes with a key chain clasp, if you want to hang it on your purse or bag. Now, I have one compact, and one wand. They will be great as props in photos!
 Have a wonderful weekend all!

Much love ~ ggsdolls

Missing in Action...

Sorry, not much going on as of late. It's been kind of slow. Mail is slow, findings have slowed, etc. I know I've shared with you all, that I've slowed down on searching and buying. But, if there is something you'd like me to locate, I'm still willing to do so. I think it is more so, that I've slowed for my own collecting or collections.

I did receive these cuties in the mail from ebay though...

I found them while searching for other Japan made ceramic figurines. I actually won a much more faded blue baby, just a week before, but the seller refused to send to Guam! Mainly, because she didn't want to fill out customs forms. Yup, I still run into those types of sellers. The listing said, "ship only to USA", Guam is a US territory. I explained to her, but she out right refunded me and said, "I don't want to fill out forms." I even told her it can be done online, with out much hassle... Nope. Oh well, a few days after, I found a Lot of 2 of these cute babies and won! Yay me, in your face, seller who doesn't want to press buttons, cuz its just so hard to do! Ha!

Vintage ceramic 1950s flat head baby figurines, with little to no loss of paint.
 Only one has the stamp, "Japan", but that's okay. They are just adorable and at a cheap price, I just couldn't pass them up. They will be added to my growing small knick knack figurine collection.


Now, I have the 2 babies, a guitar player, and an Indian with his rifle. I must admit, these are just adorable and too cute not to collect...

Be sure to stop by my shop, some items have price reduced or visit my website, there are some items that are non-vintage added there!

Thank you for visiting! ~ ggsdolls

This Week's Finds!

I recently traded a ceramic coin bank for an Iwai baby bear squeak toy, and other goodies followed with her! So sweet.

 My trade with Ana H. was too generous. She added a pink squeak toy bear, just like my blue honey bear, and a very large red head girl on the phone. That I asked her about a few weeks back.
 This rare Iwai baby girl bear, has a similar body to kewpie baby dolls I've seen, but what made this cutie unique is her face and with her mouth opened, you can put her thumb in there!
 "Iwai Co. 1977." underneath.
 Just adorable! She will be a welcome addition to my collection for now...

Then, through IG a seller had this unique bunny up for grabs. No takers, so I adopted her. No tag unfortunately. But, just scary cute anyways like most Rushton or My Toy plushies of the similar era... Ha!


 I may need to retouch its nose...

Finally, I found the "Foreign" version of the Inarco polka dot girl planter. I've seen her in blue, and yellow. But, I've always wanted this version in white with flowers and a black top. The first time I saw her, was on a friend's stream, Shevie. She had the same cute planter on her Spring table last year!

 "Foreign" stamped on the bottom. Inarco, made in Japan are the usual markings.
 I will add the blue gal in my shop soon! I must only keep one.

Last, this vintage reproduction Medicom Toy 'sofubi' soft vinyl toy mermaid, named, "Sheila" from the 1972 anime TV series, "Hazedon". She is in mint condition too and still has her purple flower.

 You can move her right arm and waist to pose.
 Her eyes, remind me of Ninohira squeak toys and dolls.

I will add her to my shop later also. So be sure to look out for her!

I will also, reduce the prices of some of my rare ceramic figurines and coin banks. So be sure to look out for that as well.

Thank you for stopping by! ~ ggsdolls
