Toy Collection 5: Harry Potter

Hey there! I’m typing this post on my phone, so I apologize if you find typos and/or weird spacing. I’m not that great at typing on phones.

I’ve been staring at a computer screen all day, and my eyeballs feel like they’re about to melt out of my head. Therefore, I put the computer away. And yes, I do realize that this is nothing but a smaller screen.

Anyway.

Today I have a toy collection post. We haven’t had one of those in a while, have we? Don’t worry, I didn’t run out of collection yet. We still have plenty of posts ahead because, well, I have a lot of stuff. This one is Harry Potter.

Other than the movies and the books, I only have 2 Harry Potter things.

The thing on the right is Fawkes the Phoenix displayed in a lovely case with a crystal ball and a stack of books. This one was a Christmas gift from my son.

On the left, we have a wand, something I’ve wanted for a few years. Mommy dearest purchased it for herself at Universal a while back and recently gave it to me. Thanks, Mum!

It’s not a character wand. This one is a Vine Wand. Here’s the description: “Vine wood is associated with persistence and renewal. Vine people have restless spirits and seemingly limitless energy. They are also prone to burn the candle at both ends. Vine people should learn to pace themselves and their achievements will know no bounds.”

Did the wand eventually choose me? I think it might have!  🙂

Toy Collection 4: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Greetings, lovelies! I was listening to the Nerdist podcast the other day. The guy who hosts collects things like I do, only his stuff sounds WAY better. He said that his collection was like a diary of things he loves. That’s exactly what mine is!

Today we have the Nightmare Before Christmas – um – group? Subcollection?

The first time I saw The Nightmare Before Christmas, I didn’t like it. When I went to see it in the theater, I didn’t know it was a musical before I went, so I was annoyed. Of course, later I saw it again and was able to appreciate it for the piece of genius it is.

So, left to right, starting in the back, we have stuffed Zero, VHS of the movie, big Jack, which should have arms but doesn’t. I have no idea where they went. Next row from left to right, we have non-stuffed Zero, smaller Jack, Oogie Boogie, Sally, Doctor Finklestein. Then there’s Lock, Shock and Barrel but not in that order, and tiny Christmas Jack with Christmas tree.

I think the next collection post might be Batman.
