I finally got around to going to a yard sale a coupe of weekends ago. I hadn't been to one yet this season. It was pretty tiny, but I got some stuff.
|A vase,a tiny jug,a demitasse cup,a,table cloth,and a vintage scarf. I got all of it for $1!|
|The handle wasn't broken on the little jug until I got home. I forgot what I had wrapped in the table cloth and plopped it down on the cement!|
The other thing I have to show you is something I got on Mother's Day. I had seen it before,but didn't get it then. Then it sold out and the price went up on the secondary market. I gave up at that point. Well Target got it in again! I nabbed this one.
The set is sold for the 18" Our Generation dolls,but the scale is maybe 1/6,or even smaller.
The front of the box opens,but then I struggled for a bit to open the plastic,but then I'm kind of lame.
The contents include a biology book,a molecule model,an anatomy torso model,and a poster.
The book is impressive looking until you open it and see that there's no print inside.
The molecule model is solid.
The poster is plastic.
|It reminds me of an x-ray.|
The torso has removable ribs so you can get to the removable organs: the lungs, and the liver.
The lungs pop out easily,but the liver wants to stay in there. I hadn't read the box,so I didn't even realize it came out at first.
The liver was easy to get back in,but the lungs required a bit of jiggling and rearranging.
I really like this little set. It would be great in a 1/6 scale classroom diorama.I suppose it works ok for the 18" dolls if you think of the body as being a hand held model. I have to say, The lungs don't want to go back and stay very well, and the ribs weren't that cooperative about snapping back in either. But still,it's a nice set. I like too, that Our Generation is selling something different from the same old ballet sets and food. I have to commend them for that. I think I would have loved this set when I was a kid.
