Miniature Monday #37: The Jukebox

More of "The Happening Poppy Parker"
By Integrity Toys

Ok, this has to be one of my coolest miniature finds...only because I think jukeboxes are cool.  Every once in a while, I go to Home Sense for interesting finds.  It's like a US equivalent of Marshall's.  They sell everything from clothes to cookware to home decor, etc.  I assume most of their merchandise are leftover stock or defective items from major retailers, now offered at lower price points.  I love going there because there's always something different to look at.  And sometimes, just sometimes, I get lucky enough to find things worth my interest, like my pretty little jukebox!


The jukebox is actually a coin bank, with the coin slit on its back.  I saw a couple of these at Home Sense and they were all missing the rubber stopper at the bottom that holds and releases the coins.  I didn't care.  I wanted it for my dolls.  I think the doll to jukebox proportion is great.  It looks classy too. I wish it lit up but one can't be too picky.  Now all I need is an upscale soda shop diorama with a dance floor for The Happening Poppy Parker and I'm set....But then again, maybe I'm getting ahead of myself here.

Happy Monday!

  1. Wow, now I'm jealous. What a great find, you would never guess it was a money box, it's so beautifully detailed and the scale is very good. Poppy looks very happy.

  3. Wow--that is amazing! I love Marshalls, but I never seem to find anything quite so fabulous. I think you should check out AdaFruit for some build-your-own electronics, and get to work on that light-up dance floor right away! :)
