Customizing Vinyl Toys

With my husband and I, well mostly him, being toy junkies, and that we both dabble in the arts and crafts, we thought that we'd try our hand at something a little different.

Color Blanks!

They come in a bunch of different styles, even ones for the holidays; Easter (duck, frog, egg, bunny), Halloween (pumpkinhead and a Frankenstein) and, of course, Xmas (reindeer and a snowman).

Michael's also has their own "in house" brand, I guess you could call it. I've bought a few smaller Halloween related ones - cute fanged little bats, a pumpkin, a Frankenstein and a cat with a witch's hat. As the Holidays are approaching, they also have some Fall/Thanksgiving ones: a turkey and an owl, and Xmas, of course, with a reindeer, snowman and a penguin.

Even more fun, I have blank My Little Ponies!!!
Can't remember how many I have, but I know I have a few. Growing up with them, I know how many there are, and with the new show, there's even more!! EVENTUALLY, I'll get around to doing something fun with them. Every year, Comic Con does one, but sometimes they're just kinda "meh." So, why not make my own!

Then there's Mighty Muggs, which also made blank figures available. Both a white and a black version:

Hasbro Toy Shop had a crazy sale around the holidays last year so we picked up 5 of each!

Both are in stock at Hasbro Toy Shop and on sale for $4.99!

Want one?

Interested in the others?

Customize and have fun!!
