Mini Lalaloopsy collection

Here are some of my mini lalaloopsy dolls.  I do not collect the big dolls, only the minis.  I also do not buy any second or third edition, only one of each character.  I have more dolls since these photos have been taken, around 50 or so I think.

Polly Pocket collection (BlueBird)

These are my Polly Pockets from when I was a child.  Most are Blue Bird a few are Mattel.  They range from 1988 to 1990s.  My favorite are the lockets and I sometimes still wear them.  I do not like the newer Polly Pocket, because she does not fit in pockets very well. I would like to add to my collection but my budget is about $3 to $5 dollars for a set, which is rare to find.  I have plans for a Polly Pocket paper doll inspired by the more vintage Polly.  The base is in progress but do not expect anything soon.
