ET Phone Mini Rodini

ET Phone Mini Rodini

I was never not going to write about this collaboration, E.T has been my favourite film forever, I have watched it scores and scores of times, I have a whole box of ET themed merch in tucked away in my loft and a giant stuffed toy in my room, I cried when I rode on the ride at Universal Studios in Florida. You get the picture, OBSESSED.

Keeping this collection a secret was harder for me than the first 3 months of pregnancy, I have basically been almost self-combusting with excitement in the months since it was first announced and it is such a relief to finally be able to shout it from the rooftops - ET PHONE MINI RODINI HAS ARRIVED!!!

Retro A-Go-Go!

Retro A-Go-Go!

Is there anything quite as satisfying as a trip down memory lane? Reminiscing about the good old days in rose tinted glasses?

I was fortunate enough to have been passed some of my favourite old toys by parents who had diligently stashed them in the loft for decades (and decades!) and it was such a thrill to bring them out again for my own kids and see them being enjoyed all over again.

If you weren't lucky enough to have parents with hoarding tendencies fear not because we have an amazing haul of re-issued vintage toys ready to be loved by a whole new generation and absolutely perfect for Christmas this year!

Fisher Price have reprised some of their most popular classics, we have a fantastic range which includes the classic chatter telephone and little snoopy pull-along dog from the 60’s and the record player and cash register from the 70’s, suitable from as young as 12 months.

My Little Ponies are also back! Who could resist these beautifully colourful little ponies with their long, flowing, comb-able manes and tails in the 80’s? We have ponies from the Classic, Rainbow, Pegasus and Unicorn collections as well as the Pretty Parlour Play-set for pony owners that want to get really serious with their grooming!

And who can resist the lure of a new puppy? Santa will be bringing a Pound Puppy down our chimney on the 25th and I couldn’t resist getting the exact same colour-way I had as a child! They also come as a newborn version complete with nappy. Super cute!

Strawberry Shortcake was another 80's must-have, originally launched at a time when everything had to smell of something! From scratch n sniff stickers to scented rubbers (erasers for the avoidance of doubt for our American friends!), Strawberry Shortcake was, and still is, infused with the most delicious sweet strawberry smell with the 40th Anniversary doll boasting sparkly gold glitter shoes and a metallic red dress.

All of these wonderfully fun retro toys are available online or in-store at our beautiful shop in the heart of the North Laine in Brighton but be quick! These are absolutely flying off the shelves this Christmas.
