My London Purchases

IMG_0329

Hi everyone! Well, I finally opened my purchases from my trip to London. I got some toys at the Sylvanian Families shop and a shirt and headband from My London Girl.  Here I am with my biggest purchase- a fish & chips van with its workers, Finley and Francesca.  Isn't it cute?

Here's Finley working at frying fish and chips in the van. He and Francesca also sell mushy peas and offer a variety of condiments.

Here's Francesca serving Sonny Barker an order or fish, chips, mushy peas, and milk.  Aren't they cute? I really love this playset.

I love Sylvanian Families/ Calico Critters! I wish I could collect all the figurines. In London, there were so many different animals they don't offer in the United States. My mothers told me I couldn't get a new family, so we compromised on three new figurines. I chose a skunk, panda, and mole! I love the skunk and mole; the panda will join the panda family my Grandma Cathy got me for the holidays two years ago. I also bought nursery school uniforms for the three new figurines.

I'm really pleased with my purchases from Sylvanian Families and My London Girl! My suitcase space was limited, but I think I made the right choices, don't you?  Have you ever bought a souvenir on a trip? What was it?

In this entry I'm wearing: headband and tee from My London Girl, pants from Dynamite Threads.

    1. Hi Lisa! I like the mole too- she reminds me a little of Moldy Warp from the Little Grey Rabbit books!

      Love,

  5. Yes, I think you made wonderful choices for your souvenir purchases. They are all incredibly cute and look like so much fun to play with! I can see that it would very hard to choose - I'd want to take everything in the store home. =D

    1. I wanted to take everything home with me too! Except maybe the monkey babies- they were scary!

  6. Hi Inky,

    I think you made wonderful souvenir choices! I love the Fish & Chips vendor and the twee little condiments. The My London Girl shirt is also pretty cute; I want one of those when I visit London. Too bad they didn't have them available when my friend Anya visited!

    I love picking out souvenirs when I travel. I think one of my favorites is the mug I picked out on my Alaskan cruise. It's the perfect container to store my pencils in, and I'm always reminded of my cruise whenever I look at it!

    Love,
    Sophie

    1. Hi Sophie!

      I think I made good choices too! I hope you can visit soon and play with the fish & chips set with me! Picking out souvenirs is so fun. I have a little mug from the Grand Canyon that I keep my pencils in. It is also just the right size! I'm still envious you went to Alaska!

      Love,
      Inky

  7. Great choices! I love Calico Critters and have the hedgehog family. My big person says she had the bears when she was a kid. The nursery school outfits you got are adorable!

    1. Hi Cassie! The hedgehog family is a great choice. The bears are adorable too. I didn't think I really cared much about them, but now that I have some bears working at the fish & chips van, I've changed my mind!

      Love,
      Inky

  8. Gosh that chippie shop is so cute. I love calico critters but have none. Sigh let's hope I get one as a present. Our toy shops have lovely displays of them. Meg
