Meanwhile, the new Littlest Pet Shop dolls look a lot different than the 1990s ones. The new ones seem to have been influenced by Japanese animation and have large head and large eyes in proportion to their bodies. On the other hand, the old-school LPS are more realistic looking in their depiction of animals, mostly household pets like dogs, cats, bunnies, turtles, and so on.
What prompted this post is that we just sold a vintage Lewis Galoob Pretty Castle set of toys which also date from the 1990s. The dolls are very similar to the Polly Pocket dolls--little tiny figures that you can place into little pieces in the floors of the different rooms of the castle. It really is a cool playset. Below are a couple of pics.
What are your favorite vintage toys (I use "vintage" a bit loosely!)?
