One of my favorite toy lines was the Kenner Littlest Pet Shops. I used to have almost every set made. I started collecting when I was 11 and kept on collecting until I was about 19. I spent hours and hours with these things and loved them to pieces!
When I got married we were very poor so I decided to sell the collection on eBay. Here's my six-month old daughter posing with them:
This adorable little cutie is now NINE!!
The lot ended for about $500, which is probably less than it would have sold for today as I was very meticulous about every set having its accessories. I also had a good number of Baby Buddies (An LPS spin-off).
Now it's time to rebuild the collection. This time I am not selling them off again. I made that promise to myself. Time and time again I get an almost complete collection and then I sell it off to buy something else. But then I go through the rebuilding over and over again. No more! Everything stays even if it has to go into the attic for most of the year. Yes . . . I am a toy hoarder.
