NEW NAME, SAME BLOG! AND SURPRISE POST TO. WOW.


 Since I wanted to let everyone know what is going on and didn't want to wait until Monday, this week you get 7 posts (there will be another post on Sunday!

 First of all, you might notice that I changed my blog's  name. It was brought to my attention that a store website uses Collector's Universe. So to avoid any confusion, I changed my blog to "Alexis' Universe." Nothing will change and for the time being, I will keep the Collector's Universe. blogspot universe. When I was a YouTube channel, it didn't matter but now as a blog there could be some confusion.

 Next up, a quick article that I decided to add in so that you aren't dragged here for just an update :)

In 1994,John Goodman, Rick Moranis, Elizabeth Perkins, Rosie O'Donell, Halle Berry, and many more starred in the live action Flintstones Movie! Predictably, there was a happy meal promotion over at McDonalds! From what I can tell there were 5 building with car toys (and I have two) and an under 3 toy! Those 5 toys were Fred with Bowling Alley, Betty and Bamm Bamm with Store, Wilma in the Flintmobile with a building and these two. The Under 3 toy was the CGI Dino.
 I found the orange toystore and because I did research on happy meal toys I knew there was a figure that went with it. The Toys R us building was 99 cents and the car was able to be put in a 2.99 bag.
 The next day I was at our other Goodwill and found the gray building (with figure in it) in the 2.99 bag area so got both of these for under 3 bucks (if you count the fact that I got other toys in the 2.99 bags!)
 They open up as shown and you can see that I have Barney in his car and Dino driving Pebbles on a scooter! Classic! The Toy store had its decals on it but Barney did not. I think it might be his house but have no clue!
 I also found this yellow brontosaurus like dinosaur! He is from Post cereal and was in boxes like Fruity Pebbles!  There were a lot of these it turns out and many including this fellow were issued in a a variety of colors!
 I got him in the 2.99 bag with Pebbles!
 i also got this Wacky Races like car at Goodwill. I loved the fact that it had Magilla Gorilla and Secret Squirrel driving. Even cooler, I did not notice until I got home, but the car itself is one of my favorite characters! Speed Buggy! Sadly he is missing one eye and the other is going. :(
 The bomb actually is on a string. I believe these were at Hardees. I had the Yogi as a kid.
That's it for this special weekend article. Another weekend article later tonight!

    1. Yeah that car is my fav out of these and there is. They have been doing the channel (and website I believe) for many years and they are also the people who run October Toys.
