Loved doing business with this seller. My figurine arrived well wrapped, in perfect condition and in a timely manner. I would certainly do business with her again!

Lovely packaging and perfect item. This little guy replaced mine that went missing in a move. The Whimsies remind me of childhood when we would excitedly find these in the cereal box, when that kind of incentive wasn't plastic. Thank you :)

About

Janet's Whimsie collection, how my Mum continues to be with me and my son through whimsical curiosities..

My Mum started my Whimsie collection. I don't remember getting my first one, but I would have been about five. I faithfully catalogued them by species or habitat, and gave them names. We trawled car boot sales and jumble sales. I'd run up to her and ask for 10p or 20p to buy a whimsie. I remember one day when I got a pound to spend and got 5 nursery rhyme figures. These were my favourite, I wrote out each rhyme and sat the figures on the paper. One day I put some in with the hamster to keep it company.

As I grew up my whimsie collection was put to the back of my wardrobe in a box, I had finished with them as I was all grown up, but my Mum continued to give them to me. "Here's one you haven't got" she'd say. I would never tell her I had three just like it and away it would go into the little box.

Five years ago my Mum suddenly passed away and the Whimsies stopped coming. I got them all out and remembered as much as I could about when I got each one and which ones I loved the most.

My son was born four years ago. She would have been overjoyed.

My store is in her name, and my collection is swelling again, every time I sell one and get him a little gift with the money, it's like it's coming straight from her..
