Plastic Toys Vintage Memories , Artful Wee Things to Collect for the Mini Curio

 Small Train or Trolley Collection $4.25  from SpillingOut


I love fantastic plastic toys from days gone by. Those cheesy molded plastic carnival toys or dimestore finds of yesterday are now sought after by collectors. There's a huge market for cars,trucks, molded plastic dolls, vintage toy playsets and more.  Some plastic toys are an artful aesthetic that one can appreciate. Often one wants to collect something but doesn't have the room, or the extra cash.  Here are inexpensive mini instant collections can be had, most under $10, but all under $25.  They are quite impressive ideas to fill a mini-curio.

Five retro neon miniature suitcases from HeyYoYo, $1.95

28 Vintage Little Plastic Cars, Trucks $13 from SpillingOut


Miniature Food Cans - 24 pcs for $15 from CoveTableCuriosities
Mini doll purse collection, $10 from SinderellasAttic

Vintage Dollhouse Suite a steal at $8 by LRobinson
My Favorite: 

Wee Miniature Accessories, Hard to Find Barbie Collection $22.95, DebCopl

Where else can you assemble a cool vintage camera, radio, princess phone and record player collection for under $25?  Only in plastic-land!
