lego minifigure: mime

“  ”
If you’ve ever been sure that somebody was silently following you and making silly faces, but nobody was there when you turned around, it was probably the Mime. He shows up in public parks, outside restaurants and in market squares, where he performs routines and does impressions of passers-by without ever making a sound.
No one pretends to be trapped in an invisible box or walking against the wind as well as the Mime does. His best pal is the Circus Clown, and the two frequently join forces to get even bigger laughs and applause from their audience!

happy meal philippines - hot wheels go for it

Happy Meal Philippines boy's toys for this month features Hot Wheels Go for It. A total of four toys to collect.
Everytime McDonald's features Hot Wheels as Happy Meal toy of the month, I always pass and never get one. I'm not a car toy fan that is why I always skip them. With this set, I'm considering to get them, to see why Hot Wheels is a regular in Happy Meal toys. The Baja Truck and Twinduction looks promising.

happy meal philippines - barbie in the pink shoes

Barbie in the Pink Shoes is this month's Happy Meal Philippines toys for girls. These toys are based on the most recent Barbie movie The Pink Shoes
Dance your way to a magical adventure with Barbie as Kristyn, a ballerina with big dreams! When she tries on a pair of sparkling pink shoes, she and her best friend, Hailey, are whisked away to a fantastical ballet world. There, Kristyn discovers she must dance in her favorite ballets in order to defeat an evil Snow Queen. With performances to the legendary Giselle and Swan Lake ballets, it's a wonderful journey where if you dance with your heart, dreams come true!
We already have the two Barbie figures for my daughter, and I can say that these dolls are very well made for a fast food toys. The quality is somehow almost the same as the real Barbie toys, only in small scale.
