Have you been collecting the New World Miniatures? While the public stance about this marketing ploy seems to be fairly evenly split, gotta say, I'm firmly in the "LOVE THEM" camp. Yeah, I'm disappointed that they didn't stick to a particular scale. Yeah, I think the apple is the most silly, pointless collectable of them all (because seriously, it is). But these niggles aside, YUSSPANTS! What a cool bunch of items to add to my miniature collection (because I actually totally have one of those - I know, I'm that cool! And equally humble. Actually no, not humble, but definitely cool).
Full disclaimer, I have not been collecting these for my children. I mean, one day they will be allowed to play with these, but that day won't be anytime soon. See that tomato sauce up above? See the mangled label? That is why.
- pause for a minute - But why doesn't everyone else in the universe love these??? I mean, MINIATURE WEETBIX!!! C'mon. And that punnet of ice-cream? Kills me.
A friend recently won a giveaway via Vogel's, and kindly shared her prize with us - I know! We were pretty stoked (and we I say we, I mean me - see above ^^). So I hit PicMonkey and came up with these. I must admit I put them together pretty hastily, and didn't do the most perfect job ever.
Eleanor for one was pretty annoyed that I got her scale wrong. Apparently she's bigger than the mini milk bottle. She is, in fact, bigger than a normal sized milk bottle. What is she, a giant?!
I led with the best and finish with the least successful. Might try this one again later...
