#GhostbustersWeek rolls on with one of the most interesting collectibles…
Who could’ve predicted that nesting dolls would become such a craze? Perhaps the Russians circa 1890, but over the past couple of years, pop culture-themed nesting dolls have become sought-after collectibles, and one company leading the charge is PPW Toys. Earlier this week we took a look at their GHOSTBUSTERS Classics PopTaters, but today we take a look at something new that they sent us for review – their GHOSTBUSTERS Nesting Dolls – a set that features all four original Ghostbusters – Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz, along with The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Slimer!
Generally, PPW’s nesting dolls come in sets of five, but Slimer is a bonus figure here – a tiny little extra that fits inside Winston. What’s cool is that here at Rock Father HQ, we have a few sets of the STAR WARS nesting dolls, and our youngest daughter has now cross-pollinated the GHOSTBUSTERS and STAR WARS universes. Just the other day, BB-8 was hangin’ out with Slimer, and that’s something special – playtime fueled by pure imagination, and while these dolls might end up on shelves at most places, here they’ve become a part of the play routine, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
