If there’s one thing I’ve learned over my twenty-plus years of living, it’s that life never goes as planned.  For instance, I intended to post this review last week but couldn’t because my mother was in the hospital.  What we thought was a perpetual stomach bug turned out to be a case of undiagnosed Crohn’s disease. She ended up having emergency surgery and staying in the hospital for a solid week.  I tried to write but couldn’t.  My mother and I are very close, and I have a hard time focusing when she’s sick or in pain.  So, I decided to wait until she wasRead The Post

A look at Toy Fair 2019.

Toy Fair 2019 just ended, and boy was it exciting!  Toy Fair is the most anticipated toy event of the year.  Attendees can connect with others, share ideas, and get sneak peeks at upcoming products.  It’s a collector’s paradise! (Not to mention the best place for doll and action figure bloggers to meet big brands and establish themselves in the toy community). Unfortunately, I cannot attend due to my problematic health🙁.  Still, that doesn’t keep me from following the major brands on social media and reporting what I see there to you!  So, let’s get started and see what’s in store for 2019! 2019 MarvelRead The Post

Captain Marvel has joined my doll universe!  Last month (January 2019) Hasbro released four Captain Marvel dolls in preparation for the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.  Today we’re going to look at one of those dolls: Captain Marvel Starforce! I found all except the Cosmic Captain Marvel at Target in the same section as the Marvel Rising dolls.  Of course, I couldn’t leave without one😉.  I debated between Captain Marvel and Marvel’s Goose and the Captain Marvel Starforce doll for a good 30 minutes (decision-making isn’t my strong point) before finally choosing the Starforce doll. The Box: This doll has a very basic box.  The frontRead The Post

Captain Marvel hasn’t even hit theaters, and it’s already on track to become one of Marvel’s top-grossing films!  According to Fandango, it has passed Captain America: Civil War in advanced ticket sales.  The only MCU movies outranking it are Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. So, all the naysayers claiming Captain Marvel would flop because Brie Larson didn’t smile in the trailers are in for a huge letdown😆. But we’re not here to talk about movies, right?  Nope, we’re here to talk about toys.  So, let’s celebrate Captain Marvel’s success with a review of the new Marvel Legends Captain Marvel figures! These Captain Marvel figuresRead The Post

Ah, it’s good to be back in the blogosphere!  Having a month off was nice (finally got a few things accomplished😉), but I’m ready to get back to sharing doll crafts and reviews with you!  So let’s kick things off with an egg-stra special review of Hatchimal CollEGGtibles! Sister loves these tiny Hatchimals.  She says they are some of the best blind packs around and been insisting I test them.  Well, her persistence finally paid off.  I took a chance and bought a whole carton of CollEGGtibles! Now let’s see if they are as fun as Sister claims. What is a CollEGGtible? Hatchimal CollEGGtibles areRead The Post

Hot Toys Loki Thor: Ragnarok Sixth Scale Figure Review.

I’ve been fantasizing about the new Hot Toys Thor: Ragnarok Loki since September.  Well, he’s not a fantasy anymore! I pre-ordered Ragnarok Loki from Sideshow Collectibles about three months ago.  His was originally expected to ship sometime between April and May 2019, but the trickster arrived early! So, let’s unbox and check out this highly anticipated figure! The Box: Loki comes in a colorful greenish-blue box.  His name is printed in metallic gold on the front next to a picture of Tom Hiddleston dressed as Loki.  At the bottom is the Thor: Ragnarok logo (in case you forgot which film this figure is from) alongRead The Post
