The Diary of a Dorkette 10 Year Giveaway!

Diary of a Dorkette will turn 10 on July 29th, and as we start July, what better way to get things going than with a giveaway!




























All this could be yours!

Ohhh Jem! And GI Joe! MOTU too! What decade is this?!

The people's princess and so much more!

So much to see!

It just keeps going!

Real Ghostbusters, both old and new!

A perfect way to build on a collection, or have your Christmas shopping done!


So, here’s how you can win all of this. Simply leave a comment below and share something that you have enjoyed or would like to see more of on this blog.

If you are on Instagram or Twitter, just find my post or tweet about the giveaway, like it and you will be entered. Comments are optional, though always appreciated. That’s three different chances to win the giveaway. The giveaway closes on Monday July 12th, with a winner to be announced on Tuesday July 13th! Winner will receive multiple shipments of the prizes, because there just ain’t a shipping box big enough for all this fortune and glory. Please let me know if you have any questions about the prizes. I had so much fun going through my collection and finding things for the giveaway and also finding some of the hot new toys at stores to throw in too. Some of the older items will not be in pristine packaging, like the Granny Gross, but everything should be pretty great!

This is my way of saying thank you for the friendships and connections I have made these past ten years. Social media can be a mess of a space, but I feel very lucky to have found a fun little corner to be a part of. 

I hope you are all doing well, and good luck to the winner!

  7. I see your blog like I see the Cave of Cool - a labor of love, an obsession and a story that fills me with pride when I look back and see all that I have accomplished. We are very alike in that way my friend. I hope there will be second prizes too. I see that WONDER WOMAN. lol.

    1. We really are alike, I agree. It is a labor of love, no doubt. I am planning on multiple prices through the year, and I had a feeling you’d spot the Wonder Woman!

    1. Yeah, time is a funny thing! And I love Troma, I need to bring in more. Toy me did have a star crossed romance with Toxie. It’d also be nice to look over some of my favorite Troma movies again and I need to get my hands on that Toxie figure from Super 7.

  11. M, I just want to say that I dig the hell out of your blogging point of view. The stories told through toys, it’s do unique and so you. Also, you’ve been so brave sharing your personal story and I’m so glad that I’ve been able to chat with you on podcasts and on twitter and junk. Congrats on 10 years, that’s a huge milestone.

    1. Thank you so much Shawn! That really means a lot. I am so glad that I know you. I remember way back when rooting for you and ShezCrafti and to see y’all’s journey and to podcast and admire your work, it’s just really nice to look back at all of that. Time just needs to slow down, if only for a bit! lol
