The Dollhouse World of Miniatures

libertybaysmall.jpg

When many of us are kids, we may have dollhouses we’d play with from time to time. They may be part of a set or homemade. Yet most will come with a family along with all kinds of furniture and accessories which are sometimes sold separately. However, while dollhouses have primarily been a domain for children, their collection and crafting can also be a hobby for many adults. Think Lester Freamon in The Wire who likes making dollhouse furniture. Nonetheless, today’s dollhouses trace their history back 400 years to the European baby house display cases that showed idealized interiors, which first appeared in the 16th century. These displays mostly consisted of cabinet display cases consisting of individual rooms.  Yet, unlike most dollhouses you’d find at Wal Mart today, these were handmade with architectural details and filled with miniature household items that weren’t made to a uniform scale even within an individual house. These were solely made for adults. And no, the reasons had nothing to do with safety concerns since child labor was rampant back then. But more because these early dollhouses were often status symbols of rich people who could afford them in England, Germany, and the Netherlands. Not to mention, they often cost as much as a house. Smaller houses with more realistic exteriors appeared in Europe during the 18th century. As you’d expect, early dollhouses were all handmade until the Industrial Revolution when they began mass producing toys. Of course, while many of us played with dollhouses as kids, the miniatures I will show on this post are more the work of adult hobbyists. So enjoy for your reading pleasure.

The Art of LEGO

Lego-e1520089244955-1080x640

They may be indestructible plastic blocks that hurt like hell when you step on them. But these colorful interlocking bricks from Denmark have had a special place in our hearts along with their yellow minifigure figurines. Since 1949, these bricks can be assembled and connected in a variety of ways to construct objects, vehicles, buildings, and even working robots. Anything built can be taken apart for another day. As of 2016, Lego has produced over 600 billion bricks while supporting movies, games, competitions, and 6 Legoland amusement parks have been developed under one of the world’s most powerful brands. And it’s because these bricks are so versatile that several people with too much time on their hands have turned the iconic LEGO into the realm of art with sculptures, models, dioramas, and mosaics. Many of these may imitate existing cultural artifacts and every day objects. Others have their own original design. But each is worth marveling at in its own way. So for your own reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of Lego works of art.

  1. You’d almost think Whistler’s mother would come to life in the brick.

Kind of seems a bit life size and 3-dimensional. But almost appears you’re in the room with her.

Sure you can’t eat it. Since it’s made out of plastic bricks. But it’s quite interesting to look at.

Actually you can’t do that since they’re made of Legos. But one of them is slightly unwrapped.

6. Looks like Mt. Brick Helens has finally blown its top.

Indeed, this is a small creation. But it’s nonetheless lovely to look at. So pretty.

Actually it’s made from sturdier stuff than porcelain. But you don’t want to drop it either.

Two years ago, I did a post on Teddy Bears which many people loved since I got a lot of views on it. But since my country is now in the winter of its discontent and that Valentine’s Day will be around soon, I thought I could do another. After all, we all need some cuteness in our lives now and then. And what toy can be any cuter than a fuzzy, wuzzy teddy bear you can cuddle with? Nevertheless, these are mainly toys for kids and a lot of people may not like receiving them for Valentine’s Day. Yet, at the same time, it’s a highly popular toy that has so many variations from places like Build-A-Bear Workshop, Steiff, Gund, Boyds, and the Vermont Teddy Bear Company. I mean you’ll find all kinds of bears suited for holidays, special occasions, occupations and activities, and even celebrities. Oh, and you have to see the ones of fictional characters. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of these adorable plushies of joy.

  1. Han Solbear shot first.

The Quacky World of Rubber Duckies

rubber-ducky

As far as bath toys go, there is none that is as iconic or as popular as the rubber duck. I mean who doesn’t remember this stylized adorable yellow duck with its hollow body and flat base? Sometimes it even squeaks. Ironically, though rubber duckies have only become extremely popular in recent years, its history actually pre-dates that of the Teddy Bear. The first rubber ducks were made in the late 19th century by hard rubber vulcanized by Charles Goodyear’s process. However, unlike their modern counterparts, the first rubber ducks were solid and not capable of floating. In fact, the original rubber ducks were used as chew toys. The modern rubber duck would by created by a sculptor named Peter Ganine in 1940. He would later patent it and reproduce it as the floating bath toy we all know and love. Over 50,000 of these would be sold which was enough to gain a following when Jim Henson popularized it in 1969, performing “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street. We all know that Ernie was paying homage to his favorite toy which he’d talk to and carry around everywhere. The rest is history. Today there are duck races as well as plenty of novelty rubber ducks to choose from besides the ubiquitous yellow one. I mean there are people around who collect these things. And on this post, I’ll show you a treasure trove of the kinds of rubber duckies you’ll see thanks to Pinterest and Google Images. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the great wide bath time world of rubber ducks. And believe me, it’s quacky.

75. Under the sea, you’ll find these lovely mermaid ducks quacking.

Each one has a fish tail, bright hair, and a seashell bra. But you'd certainly fall for these at bath time.

The Ripped Off World of Bootleg and Knock Off Toys

Legal Disclaimer: The following is post that’s meant for entertainment purposes. It does not endorse or condone the production or sale of knockoff and bootleg toys or other merchandise. Bootleg products are inferior in quality and are unsafe for anybody to handle in any way. Bootleg toys are a danger to children since they tend to be made from easily breakable plastic, contain loose magnets or springs, or use potentially dangerous lead paint. Besides, kids don’t like them. Also, counterfeit merchandise of any kind is illegal for they cut into legitimate company profits, cause licensing costs to rise, and potentially undermine a brand’s value. Do not buy them for kids under any circumstances. Nor buy any bootleg merchandise whatsoever. Buy real merchandise of quality and don’t waste your money. Thank you.

To the manufacturer, bootlegs, knock offs, and counterfeits are the bane of one’s existence. To consumers, they are cheap rip offs of questionable quality. But like them or hate them, such products have been around for decades. In the days before merchandising, you might find unlicensed toys and other items at your local grocery store or 5 and dime. Local companies would manufacture these items in small enough numbers that they’d slip past by most  lawyers’ notice. However, during the 1950s, Superman’s success on TV led DC Comics to clamp down hard on unlicensed products featuring their characters. Fortunately for the makers, they’d let anyone put Superman on any stupid thing for a couple of bucks. Nevertheless, like their designer counterparts, bootleg and knock off merchandise has a limited production run. And there are plenty of collectors who love knockoff toys that a lot of bootleg toys have become worth more than the real thing due to their rarity. Generally, knock offs tend to rip off something for a cheaper price that’s similar enough for you to buy it but different enough so the manufacturers won’t get carded or sued. And many of these products are of varying quality that you’ve probably seen in grocery stores, dollar stores, street vendors, or in some foreign country. Some bootleg toys are almost a replica of the real thing. Others just make you scratch your head on their existence. At any rate, in this post, I intend to show you some of the most bizarre bootleg and knock off toys to ever hit the shelves mostly less inspired and more god awful. So for your reading pleasure, I give you the greatest toys from the hell of unlicensed products. Or heaven according to your point of view since a lot of them tend to be unintentionally hilarious.

 

  1. If you like Superman and the Flash, look no further.
I call him Super Flash. Because he looks like Superman and is dressed in a Superman outfit. But has Flash colors.

2. From Star Wars Episode 1, I give you a one of the kind Mace Window action figure.

And he has a yellow lightsaber when his is supposed to be purple. Also, looks a lot like Mace Windu of the Jedi Council.

3. If can’t get a Terminator action figure, this Terminate and Destroy one is the next best thing.

From the Fwoosh: "Ah, very clever. Instead of using Ahnold’s face on the package, they used Jean-Claude Van Damme, and instead of using Jean-Claude”s face on the figure, they used your dad’s! Lawsuit dismissed!"

4. For Batman fans, you’ll certainly want this action figure.

Oh, wait that's Superman. And he comes with automatic weapon accessories. If we learned from Man of Steel, we know that Superman's very capable of killing his own kind with his bare hands.

5. Can’t afford a Ninja Turtle for your nephew’s birthday? Perhaps this Mouse Master and Turtles figure will do just fine.

And it's a bird of prey with a cane. Then again, as a Ninja Turtles villain, this is good enough. After all, they can eat turtles.

6. I know a very popular action figure is of your friendly, neighborhood Spiderman.

Doesn't help that by line on the packaging says, "Come on enjoy the pleasure together!" What? Also comes with automatic weapon accessories. Not sure which is more disturbing.

7. Want a Furby but can’t afford one? Well, that’s where Mog Gwai comes in.

Guess "Mog Gwai" means in another language "Furbies that are legitimately creepy." Seems like these will not make your day.

9. There is no girl from the 1990s who’d not want a Lisa Frank backpack.

However, this isn't the kind of backpack you'd want to buy for a little girl. Unless her name happens to be "Anus" which is unlikely, hopefully.

14. Can’t find a Spider Man action figure? How about a Spader Man action figure instead?

15. This Change Robot is just as good as a Transformer.

Well, he changes into a cassette tape anyway. And I know that some of my youngest cousins have no idea what a cassette tape is.

16. No you can be like your neighborhood Spider Man with these Spider Man Adventures Outdoor Heroes Action figures.

These are Archer and Fisherman heroes respectively. Come with their own set of accessories. If I wanted an action figure that could shoot arrows and fish, I'd go with one of Katniss Everdeen.

18. Forget the Ninja Turtles. These Ninja Hero Riders are where it’s at.

19. This Mr. T Might Car comes battery powered.

Okay, that looks like something coming from Sid's place. You know that weird kid from Toy Story? It's like they put Mr. T's head and arms on a police van. Freaky.

25. No young child would want to go to school without a Mickey Mouse backpack.

28. See C-3PO as you’ve never seen him before – in turquoise.

Okay, that more or less resembles C-3PO if he came from the 1960s. And no, turquoise doesn't suit him. This is wrong.

29. Can’t get a Batgirl action figure? How about a Bat Chica one instead?

Sorry, but I'm very sure that Mr. Incredible is not an Avenger. Seriously, he's not even part of Marvel or DC. He's Disney and Pixar.

33. If you like the Disney Princesses, then you’ll enjoy this Disney doll.

This has to be bootleg since this doll is practically naked. And I know Disney would never sell toys like that to young girls. Also has a Barbie doll head.

36. We all know that Darth Vader must be a force to be reckoned with in the galaxy far, far away.

However, this one makes Darth Vader look as if he's just come from a rave. I'm sure he'd really force choke the guy who made this action figure.

38. There is no Transformer ever more intimidating than the Breast Chaser.

Guess this Transformer has a very dirty mind. Still, the name makes him hard for me to take seriously. But I'm sure Michael Bay will put him in a movie eventually.

39. As we know, C-3PO looked quite different in Star Wars Episode I.

40. If you can’t get a Darth Vader action figure, you can always settle for Space Power Warrior.

44. I’m sure anyone would want to cuddle with a plushie of Winnie the Pooh.

As long as Pooh's arms and head aren't attached to some nightmarish monster. Seems like Pooh took part in some crazy mad scientist experiment gone horribly wrong.

47. Star Knight will always patrol the galaxy for intergalactic crime.

I think putting Darth Vader on a police motorcycle is beneath his dignity. Also, kind of makes it hard to take a guy who chopped off his son's hand seriously.
