Reposting this again now that more are surfacing in stores. I have so many followers who aren’t Shopkins Collectors I know someone out there has got to be able to help. These two have me about ready to give up on my toy hunting entirely.... no joke. There are 10,000 of each.... that’s not “rare” the prices people are asking for them is above reason and logic. I’ll sell my moose collections before I’ll let someone rip me off with these. HELP! 😓
Sometimes collecting things virtually in games helps me with my very real toy hunting addiction and I was way too curious about this Disney Magical Gacha to not try it out. Only took almost two months to arrive.... so far I’m impressed. Looks as if the extra gacha keys I ordered for it arrive today as well. How long do you think this thing will take to unlock all 144 characters?
How cool is it that a M!X fits perfectly in the McDonald’s Happy Places Dining Chair. Props to Stefani Michele Nelson on a Tamagotchi FB page for bringing two toy world I love together. I’m even more excited for extra chairs now! #tamagotchi#spkhappyplaces
My first 2018 goal is to acquire a Blue Tamagotchi of each color screen version. I’m head over heels in love with my M!X and now must explore the ways of past Tamagotchi. This my friends was a very dangerous Pandora’s Box to open, but a wildly addictive to say the least. Thankfully no rare Giga Pets have popped up since I started this journey. “Hi my names Matthew and I’m addicted to virtual pets.” #virtualpet#tamagotchi#tmgc
I won’t give up but I have to say hunting a Funko Mystery Mini set with multiple store exclusives & multiple 1/72 is hell on earth. I need help from anyone who happens to have easy access to a couple Hot Topics nearby them. I cant even stomach to think about how much $$$ I’ve wasted on duplicates (Nancy!!!!). Aaaaand I’m still two extraordinarily expensive 1/72 away from being complete. I’d rather buy the specific Hot Topic case Layout with her in it than pay what eBay wants for Eleven with Eggos. Problem is finding a HT with unopened cases, so I’m happy to make the calls if anyone has one nearby but I need options as they’re few and far between. I’d basically have wasted an entire paycheck on what i have so far if it weren’t for the help of @fenwaysgirl .
Another Moose Series complete, I owe a lot of thanks for all the help I had finishing this one.... @toymom1975 swooped in for the finish with #3 and amazingly with #36 (sealed). @bratzheaven for always being on the hunt for new info for so many communities and then being kind enough to help me start on this collection early. @fenwaysgirl @lupie_warrior2002 @tinyshopkinscollector @whisperedsurprises (especially for this display #36 to open!) deserve a shout out as well for their help and always just constantly keeping their eyes open. This was certainly costly and time consuming but a completionist accomplishment none the less. I know I’m missing some other people to thank and so I’ll add to this list as i recall.
So I recently discovered Pixel Chix while going down the rabbit hole of learning about Virtual Pets / Giga Pets. They’re essentially a hybrid of a Tamagotchi + Polly Pocket (not associated with either brand). Mattel released these back in 2005-09 when b&w pixelation was becoming obsolete and our smartphones / iPods were getting color screens. I firmly believe this toy was before it’s time and maybe one of the most innovative and creative toy concepts I’ve ever come across. #virtualpet#pixelchix#mattel#toystagram
Today is the kind of mail day when you’re happy to have the day off work. Really glad to have the Babe and Salem Giga Pets secured, big thanks to @amourdejane for selling me (a stranger from IG) Salem just to help out my collection she also included many beautiful gifts on top of it all. Give her a follow! Im not letting myself get into collecting actual Tamagotchi but I was curious enough to import this most recent m!x anniversary gift set and see what the current ones are like over in Japan nowadays. #gigapet#gigapets#tamagotchi#tamamail#babethepig#salemthecat#sabrinatheteenagewitch#tamagotchimix#virtualpet#toystagram
