Toys 4 Us


Here is the little dysfunctional family that lives in a circus scene under my desk. They tend to get nudged a lot by my feet and knocked over, but that just gives me an excuse to rearrange them. Here they are pictured in a rare desktop appearance. From left to right they are: J.P. Patches, Nancy Pearl the Librarian, Pinocchio straight from Italy, Albert Einstein, Casanova, and Lois Griffin. They are my action figures for grown-ups!

I love action figure dolls like that! Nice collection.

That is an admirable collection of action figures you have there! I love that you have a Casanova action figure! Where did you get that one?

Makes me want to go out and buy Legos and Polly Pockets.

Sebastien said...

Hahaha, awesome, I need to get stuff like this. Einstein looks kinda pissed off...

MiniJonB: Yeah, I love my little guys!

Tara: Thanks! I got most of them from Archie McPhee, including Casanova.
You should totally buy Polly Pockets, they take up no room at all!

Sebastien: It is nice to have these little pals around at work
:-)
Einstein wants to make a point, he has his chalk out and all, but the commotion around him is just too much....

I use to collect dolls as a kid and had a pretty nice one at that.. but over the years they have taken a trip on the wild side and haven't seen them since.. I also use to collect unicorns and anything to do with them.. but I gave up.. It was too much..now I collect little pitchers that are antique looking...

Casanova kinda looks like Bill Maher...who could ever mistake one for the other?

Nice little collection you got there, I have some Simpsons characters and a Yoda. (you've seen them--right)

BabyBull: I believe my collection will stay pretty small. I have never in my life been able to maintain a large collection of any sort.

Evil-E: haha! I hadn't noted the resemblence before, but you may be right.
Yes! I've seen your guys :-)

I love action figures...Except the clown. I'm terrified of clowns

hehe, love Nancy the librarian - is she shushing someone?

l.b. said...

Churlita: I am a bit coulrophobic myself...isn't everyone? I am always glad he is so tiny and that the others are willing to keep him in line.

FW: Yes! She has "super shushing" action!
