I really like some of the Twozies. But I really HATE blind bags/boxes!

I like little things, like, Little Kingdom stuff, and I like to know exactly what I'm getting.

Since I can't be certain that I won't end up with something I kinda don't like or REALLY don't like with a blind bag, I am willing to pay MUCH less for that unknown factor.

Like, one of the most disappointing experiences I find is to have doubles or more or something that was only "meh" to begin with. That's such a downer so that really comes into my cost I'm winning to pay just for the slim chance of what I really do want.

That being said, Twozies are cute. I especially like their dioramas and have bought all of them. Note how there are no hidden mystery anything about the dioramas!

I've been wanting to get into Animal Jams, but would I be "out of the loop", since I don't play the mobile game they're based on? XD I guess that's kind of a silly concern, lol.

There was a great sale on Twozies (and a lot of other blind bag minis) over the holidays, so I bought a bunch. They're so cute! Does anyone know how they're doing in terms of popularity? I want to see future waves...

I didn't even know there -was- a mobile game until I spotted the code on the last Animal Jam I got. I just like the teeny tiny animals lol. :)

That said, if anyone does play it and wants my codes, lemme know! :3

I watch so many Youtube videos of Blind Bag openings, but I really do not care to collect them myself. I do not think a tiny little figure that I don't even know which one I'm getting is worth the money. :/ (And don't get me started on those MLP Blind Bags where most of them are the Mane Six with a different color and Cutie Mark.)

That being said, I do like the idea of MyMiniMixieQs (as well as Gift Ems, and the LOL surprises, since they have mix and match redressability like dolls. Even though with Gift Ems I wish Boys weren't relegated to being drivers, and LOL dolls need male characters period.) but I can never bring myself to spend the money on a set. I'd prefer to buy a doll, or a Video Game.

For what it's worth, the MLP Blindbags have letter codes on them that indicate which pony is in the bag.

Speaking of blind bags/box items I'm surprised Mattel had nothing at for My Mini Mixie Qs at Toy Fair. It seemed like they were doing ok.

I love blind bags,I also love the surprise aspect but if there's one thing I can't stand,it's getting duplicate after duplicate constantly(and the cost adds up really fast).

Series 2 just came out, so I'm sure they're fine.

I'm really looking forward to the new Power Rangers line that Bandai showed at Toy Fair. That tiny Rexy/Gabutyra! Gah! And my Minecraft minis collection is grossly behind. I'm still missing some from Series 1! Time to creep some codes on the chest series I guess.

This is all aside from collecting the MH Minis, of course. I'd like to try one of the LOL dolls though.

Oh yeah... I forgot to mention how much I'm drooling over Funko's Steven Universe blind boxes. *_* Anyone know where I can buy a case of those online (either series)? They don't seem to exist anywhere in my remote area. :(

Welp, now I want some Animal Jams. I had managed to ignore them all this time, but my niece watched a video of a case of them being opened on YouTube and asked me to buy her a few. When she's here, I usually bring her home a few blind bags when we go grocery shopping, so I got her two of the little house ones and one of the treasure chest ones. They're a lot cuter and smaller than I thought they'd be. And after looking over the checklist, there's like a dozen I want.

It's become a Christmas tradition in our house, I stick a blind bag something-or-other in everyone's stocking. Last year my sister got a Puppy-in-my-Pocket, and Mom got a Walking Dead dog tag. I picked an Animal Jam for my own stocking, figuring what the heck, its $2, maybe it'll be cute or I can pass it on if I'm not a fan. Yeaaaahhh now I'm hooked, LOL :) There's about a dozen on the check list that I want, too. haha.

Would anyone be interested in a blind bag/box trading thread? Since there are so many types of blind bags out now and since a lot of us collect multiple types I thought that if there was one thread where we could all post the duplicates from whatever blind bags we have and what we're looking for, kind of like the Shopkins and MH Minis thread, except this one will be for all other types. So like Funko Minis, MixieQ's, Animal Jam, LOL Surprise, etc. and that way we can also all trade across the types, like say a MixieQ for an Animal Jam instead of just trading a Mixie for another Mixie, etc. I can go ahead and start the thread in the trade section if there's any interest.

I really like that idea since I collect a lot of different ones and even if I have dupes in one toy I might not need any more from that kind. Maybe include Shopkins and MH Minis too tho.

I would've liked them more if they were cheaper. MH minis have arrived and I'm wondering if I can justify the price, haha. 2 blind bags or a plushie? 3 blind bags or a budget doll? I feel that I'd choose the plushies or dolls over the blind bags.
