I'll never grow up, I'm an eternal toy-lover. This weekend I found several sets of smalls. I paid more for these Tomy Made in Japan sets than I normally would, but I promised myself that I'd snatch them up again if I found them at an okay price. It's been fun staging them ever since:
I love the detail, this toilet lid opens and the toilet paper dispenser spins like the real thing, the faucets swivel, the drawers and cabinets open, and the basins are complete with detailed drains.
I love how the mirrors of this vanity open to reveal storage shelves you could likely line with various tiny depictions of mouthwash, toothpaste and bathroom potions.
But no bathroom is complete without a dinosaur! Ah, he just sets the scene perfectly.
GOD DAMN DINOSAURS, that's what! BAM! Your wish my command! It could use the missing drawer too but I always wasted my wish on the dinosaur. The beauty of the pieces hypnotized me into buying them despite three missing spots. The chair on the left looks dino chomped if you look hard enough.
And we also need a place to sit, take out a chair. Don't mind the dinosaur behind you.
The mini kitchen is chilling in my kitchen.
The bathroom is right at home in the bathroom, but of course.
Meanwhile, my roomie and I staged a relaxing scene with pirates and booze! I'm always looking out for minis to stage dioramas, take photos, and use in product photography. They're glorious for the designer's soul to behold and fine display in any home that lacks children like mine, no shame! It's been done before but I want to put my spin on a whole new toy-photo-art series too, and just challenge myself with what can be creatively portrayed with toys as a medium. Forgive today's indulgent toy haul, rest assured there's a smorgasbord of vintage to behold next week!
