Tiny Candy Vase Mug

This ceramic Tiny Candy vase/mug from Gakken Victoria Fancy is about 6 inches tall. The opening is only 1 inch in diameter, so it's not very practical for a mug, but it does have a handle which is unusual for a vase.

The front features a little girl riding a pegasus with two bunnies hanging on.

The back has one bunny riding a star. I never liked the little girl, but I was willing to overlook it for the cute bunnies. The bottom is marked $6.50.

Megalomania Mascots

These two Megalomania mascots are furry plush with pompom feet and a rope tail. Each wears a tiny pink jingle bell and stands about 3 inches tall. I've had the one on the left since the early 1980s. The right, somewhat evil-looking mascot was a more recent acquisition from eBay.
