Do you have any Re-Ment Miniatures? I especially like the older sets. These are some of my favorite pieces. This Japanese Re-Ment 2005 Petite Drug Store set - Baby Supplies #4 - is hard to find and pricey. The diapers don’t really open, but they look very cute on a miniature changing table.
ReMent are adorable #kawaii detailed realistic miniatures from Japan. The older sets are quite collectible and pricey these days. They are often used as dollhouse minis and the tiny foods are very popular. Many Barbie doll photographers on social media use them in their 1/6th scale Dioramas.
From Wiki: RE-MENT Co., Ltd. (株式会社リーメント, Kabushikigaisha-Riimento), located in Chiyoda Tokyo, is a Japanese manufacturer of collectible plastic toys. The company’s name is derived from a combination of the phrase “reform the entertainment”, alluding to their desire for innovation in the toy market. Established in 1998, Re-Ment currently sells a line of highly detailed miniature food, furniture and animal figures as well as mobile phone charms, doll fashions and magnets. Re-Ment miniatures have been featured in two television advertisements by the Kellogg Company for their Pop-Tarts pastry product.

Did / Do you have a Sindy doll? I follow quite a few doll collectors in England that have them. I decided it would be fun to purchase some to photograph.
According to Wikipedia: “Sindy is a British fashion doll created by Pedigree Dolls & Toys in 1963. A rival to Barbie, Sindy’s look and range of fashions and accessories made her the best-selling toy in the United Kingdom in 1968 and 1970. After Marx Toys’ unsuccessful attempt to introduce Sindy in the United States in the late 1970s, Hasbro bought the rights to Sindy and remodelled the doll to look more American. As a result, the doll’s popularity declined…”
