Little toys for little kidsies

Some of my LHF kidsies need some toys! I have plenty of books, dolls and stuffed animals, but I would like to get some more. I’m trying to think of sources for the following:

  • Cars, trains, trucks, construction equipment, planes, helicopters, rockets, etc.
  • Blocks.
  • Horses.
  • Games.
  • Musical instruments such as drums, keyboards, xylophones, recorders, whistles, etc.


On the musical instruments front (and maybe some other interesting odds and ends) I have a suggestion you might not have thought of yet… do you have a store that sells party favors and supplies? They’re a great place to get cheap kazoos and tambourines and things, sometimes in sets!

Not that I was, cough, looking for a kazoo in like four different stores in a fit of nostalgia and got one for 25 cents at the party store. Oh, no. (It’s BLUE!)

For games, they used to make keychain games that even had some pieces to them. Blocks…get a small square dowel rod, cut off pieces, and paint. Vehicles and animals….gumball machines? Or! If you have a miniatures store nearby. I know downtown Glendale has Auntie Em’s Miniatures. They have a website, but it doesn’t look like they have anything ON it. Try the dollhouse section of Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Since these are toys for kidlets, they don’t have to be perfect sixth-scale.

How old are the kids tho? Minis might be a swallow-able size and are probably best left to older children.

Um…her LHF kids are DOLLS.


Sorry. Had no clue what LHF meant. Figured it was an organization or school or daycare or scout group or… something, and she wanted toys for a playroom or a project. *shrug* Shows what happens when you guess. But I can’t keep on top of all the letters anymore.

Little Happy Friends? ^_^

That sounds so fun! I want a link to this comic if it is online.

Also, if a specific scale is desired… this takes some work, but, it is fairly inexpensive and TONS of fun to create your own miniature whatever using polymer clay! That way it can look any way you want. It’s time-consuming and not everybody’s idea of a great hobby of course, but it’s a thought. 🙂
