Thrifty Finds and A Winner!

I was in one of my favorite thrift stores when some ladies brought in several items they left in the bins by the front door.  I don't usually go through the bins but someone was already looking so I joined in.  This store doesn't price everything first so it's often OK to take something up to the counter and ask a price.  When I saw this...
I did!  It was tied with string but I could tell it has stuff in it.  I paid $3 for it and home it came.  I've never heard of 
"Liddle Kiddles" before, but I could tell they were vintage.

Vintage Little Kiddles  - Liddle Kiddles were introduced by Mattel in 1966.  They were tiny dolls, ranging from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches tall, with pose-able limbs and rooted hair.

I found lots of information on this website Liddle-Kiddles

Most still have their little story book with them.  
This is Howard 'Biff' Boodle
Lola Liddle
Nurse Florence Niddle
(I found her hat but not her apron).
 Greta Griddle & Little Diddle

I don't plan to keep these.  They are in 'loved' condition but if someone is interested in them let me know!
I feel good about my $3 investment!

Thank you all for participating in my giveaway.  Ramsign is so awesome.
The winner is...

Carol at Art and Sand!

I'll send Tezz your email address and she will contact you about getting your Ramsign.  Congrats!

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Can't believe you found those Little Kiddles - and for only $3! I played with those when I was a little girl (late 60's, early 70's).

Lucky Carol for being the giveaway winner - yay!

Such a cool find! I have never seen those even if they come from my era.

Maybe they did not sell those in Canada....

I remember Liddle Kiddles! My sister and I had some, but it was right at the end of my doll days. Great find! Congrats to Carol!

The photo of the Liddle Kiddle clubhouse took me right back to my childhood! My sister and I had the very same house and some of those dolls (I think she still has the house) and we spent countless hours playing with them. Lucky find!
