All My Stranger Toys: Chapter 3

Dear Diary,

So here's the thing. I've reunited with Yvie. Bruce is here with us. Kind people from Hawkins have stepped in to help us in this most strange situation. This quiet little town has their own catacombs, which I am not even sure what to think of that. Anyways, still stuck in 1985. Thought we were safe, but Barbarocious just strutted her crazy behind down some stairs and now I have no idea what is going to happen. Will we ever return to a simpler time?

All My Stranger Toys: Chapter 2

Dear Diary,

We're still in 1985. Bruce Wayne and I befriended two nice people. A fellow mom named Joyce and the town's police chief. He goes by Hopper and likes beer though he said he was trying to cut back. I don't know. Either way Hopper and Bruce raced off to search for Yvie, leaving me alone with Joyce and her youngest son. He seems a bit odd. Like maybe he has been through some things? I don't know. I'm just pissed. I want to be doing something. Anything. Yvie is out there in a city none of us have ever been to in a year we are not supposed to be living in. I mean who decides to just time travel? How did we even get here? And if we are here, do I eventually buy some She-Ra toys once this mess settles down? Will the items travel with me back to the present if we even make it that far? I. Don't. Know. I just want Yvie to be safe...

All My Stranger Toys: Chapter 1

Dear Diary,

Somehow Bruce Wayne and I have found ourselves in 1985. We don't know what to do. We have no idea if our daughter Yvie is here. We have no idea if her biological mother Moth Lady is here. And we certainly have no idea if the vile evil Barbarocious is here. I'm not a betting woman, but if I was, I would guess that they are all here, somewhere. All I know is that we are in some town called Hawkins. In Indiana of all places. They also had brand new She-Ra toys in this shop we just walked out of. My brain and heart are just feeling all types of ways right now.

All My Toys: Let the Dead Rest

Dear readers,

It has been a moment since there has been a new All My Toys. Career and personal obligations have kept me busy as have the Swans Crossing article and the fun I have been having with Funko's Savage World and DC Primal Age toy lines over on Instagram (check it out, it's still Diary of a Dorkette just on IG) but here we are! A new All My Toys! 

So here is where we have left off. Count Chocula won the presidential election in 2016, only Cobra rigged the election. Cobra Commander kidnapped Chocula while having Zartan masquerade as President Chocula with Zarana posing as First lady Strawberry Shortcake. With Cobra running the government, everything is in chaos. The other Monster Cereal Mascots feel that something is afoot and are trying their best to find the real Chocula, although one of the remaining four are not who they seem...

Meanwhile Miss M and Bruce Wayne were able to reunite with their daughter Yvie, who was thought to be killed. While Yvie was away she was tortured by the evil Barbarocious. With the help of Moth Lady (Yvie's bio mom, long story) Barbarocious now knows where to find Yvie, and she is coming to collect her pet...

For the Honor of Justine Part 4

Once upon a time there was a pre-teen dorky girl living in Texas trying to figure out what her next toy obsession would be. Out of nowhere came a toy line she never knew she needed but was so glad to grab her lovely hands on. The line was called Swans Crossing and unknown to her she would one day get to befriend the woman who designed and created the toy line. Read on for my final article about the amazing toy designer, illustrator, and inventor who brought the soapy world of Swans Crossing to life in plastic: Justine Dantzer.
