I always have too many books (I did de-accession five books this past week), but one can never have too many toys. And these are the toys that I mostly acquired in NM this summer.
These are the blinged out Godzillas and dinosaurs. The Godzillas came from a toy store in Santa Fe and the large dinos came from the Natural History Museum in ABQ. The pterodactyl was found in a local art supply store and is my new favorite dino.
I didn’t really have enough time to carefully peruse the purchase of these wind-ups, my parking meter was about to run out!
This lovely hopping eyeball was a gift from an old friend. Of course he had two, so I got this one to take home with me. Thanks BooBoo!
These are tiny toys, I got two of each in case I wanted to make earrings out of them, but they are so adorable I think that I shall keep them as is. And I do love jellyfish (from a distance at least).
The teeny tiny dinosaurs make a nice contrast to the larger ones. They are very detailed in spite of being miniature. I expect that They will be lovely to photograph in absurd situations. And I don’t have to find room for them on an overcrowded bookshelf.
