The Littlest Pet Shop Obsession

Boo is obsesses, I mean really really OBSESSED with the Littlest Pet Shop. She has at least a hundred of the little toys, then there are the houses and accessories too. She started with a shoe box full and now she has two shoe boxes and an extra big box we bought from Home Sense (I'm a little obsessed with the boxes you can buy in Home Sense!) and then there are all the ones that are in her houses.

When she's not playing with the little toys she is watching You Tube videos of other people playing with them. Or videos of people shopping for them or making accessories for them. When she's not doing that she's drawing pictures of them in her drawing pad, or writing stories about them in her notebook. She even dreams about them, she told me so!

I can't remember when the obsession began but I know she had some for her birthday last year in July, so that's well over a year ago. They can be expensive costing around £8 for a single one, you can save money by buying in sets or bulk or second hand. I wanted to get her as many as possible for her birthday last year so I paid £50 for a bundle of 20 figures, a house and some accessories on Ebay. She was thrilled.

Sometimes Star will play with her, but although Star was just as obsessed at first, her obsession seems to have worn off a little, especially since they stopped customising them.

I know that I've spent a fortune on Littlest Pet Shop figures but I've also spent money on paint, air drying clay, beading kits, Fimo, and moulds. They have spent hours and hours at the kitchen table working on their little creations, turning them from one creature to another or just adding decorations. The weirdest was when they started turning them into Undertale characters!!

They seemed to have calmed down on the complete customisation now though and just make them little accessories with beads and scraps of fabric. I've even crocheted them a couple of hats and a sleeping bed. 

Guess what Boo wants for Christmas? But she also wants a Sylvanian families house because it's just the right size for her LPS!!

Does your child have an obsession with a toy?

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
