Subject: Novelty Store Nostalgia

Written By: Funshine2001 on 07/30/02 at 01:32 p.m.

TEXTChances are, if you've been to such stores as "Claire's Botique," "Spencer's Gifts," "The Icing," etc, then you've seen the line of nostalgic items for sale at relatively decent prices.  

Items of choice include keychains, pocket folders, small stuffed toys, bobble head dolls, small memo pads, pens, figurines, and such.  The nostalgic cartoons of choice include but are not limited to: Kermit and Miss Piggy, Popples, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, My Little Pony and Smurfs.

I have become a victim of this cute trend, buying a Kermit pen several months ago, a Muppet Show 25th Anniversary action figure of Kermit and Miss Piggy (yes, I'm aware that the Muppet Show was established in 1977, but Kermit is very much 1980s) and a small Funshine Care Bear yesterday.  

My question is, has anyone else purchased any items of interest? What do you have?

I bought a Strawberry Shortcake lunch pail from Hot Topic about a month ago.
