Last week Garry and I checked out Talbot's Toy Land in San Mateo. Impressive offerings for a relatively obscure (i.e. non-Toys-R-Us) establishment. I was pretty interested to see how different some of the toys were, like these Karito Kids line that features rather large dolls, each one hailing from a different country and wearing 'modern' outfits. Yes, what you see in the pictures is a pair of UGG boots on the surfer-chick doll from Australia. Yuck!
- Original 1983 Edition My Little Ponies. I still have Cotton Candy around somewhere.
- Calico Critters... I had the bunny cotton-tail family I think.
- Breyer horses. I always wanted, not just one, but a whole bunch of these gorgeous horse models. My friend Sara had a whole herd of horses plus the full farm and paddock set-up (I was so envious and thought she was so spoiled).
