Mini Shopping Cart

Well, hey!

Vanessa purchased mini carts at Hobby Lobby and I told her they have some big enough for Barbie at Amazon.  She wondered at the size comparison so I've taken some pics. Now that I compare between our photos, I kinda think they maybe the same size. 0.o

Here you go, Vanessa.

  1. Thanks for posting these pictures. I think they are the same carts. Hobby Lobby had blue ones, too.

    1. You're welcome, Vanessa. Too bad they weren't bigger. An adult would have to be on a Liv body or one of the new petite bodies for it to look actually scale.

  2. I think they could work for playscale scenes even though the height is a bit off.

    1. Debbie, for photo purposes, as long as the wheels weren't shown, you could put the cart on top of a small box and no one would be the wiser.

  3. Muff, your photos are so nice, crisp, and clear. Why type of camera do you use? It is good to see a doll against the cart. I agree with Debbie, they could possibly work.

    1. Thanks, Georgia Girl! I used my iPhone6 to take these pics. They just look nice because I placed the doll in a light box I made, so she was well lit. I 'plan' to open an online shop to sell off some doll stuff so I needed a halfway decent light set up to take the pics. It's cheap, but it's working so far.

  4. I think I've seen these in a bigger size, but possibly too big for 1/6 scale dolls.

    Anyway, nice to see you posting again!

    1. Hiya, Anderson! Bigger than these? I'd like to see those even if they are too big. Maybe they make them for American Girl sized dolls.

  5. Thanks for posting this - these carts seem to be showing up all over and I'd been wondering about the scale of them.

    1. jSarie, the first time I bought them I think they were $9 so if they are running for $4 now I'm not surprised people are snapping them up.

  6. These are the same as the ones I have. They do look very similar to the ones Vanessa posted. Glad to see a post from you, Muff!

    1. Thanks, Roxanne! I am trying to improve my lighting while still being lazy about what I take photos with.

  8. Probably fill the chrt with loads of stuff so that it would look taller, hahaha!

    1. LOL, Oly. That sounds like a good idea to me.

    2. Oh yeah, you can fill it, then raise the cart with something underneath the wheels, then crop that part of the photo so it would look on scale! Kinda like what you do when you use your spare body parts to fake a doll's articulation, hehe.

  9. Muff! Glad to see you blogging again. Brandy looks great with that cart, although you're right; it is a little bit small scale.

  10. What body are you using for Brandy?

    1. Roxanne, she's on a Fashionista body. I don't have a Made-to-Move body yet. Too cheap.

  11. I have one of these carts with purple trim and was wondering if these were the same size. Now you've put these pictures up I can see they are. Thank you. Nice to see you posting again too.

  12. *screams* MUUUUFF!!! HIII MUUUUFF!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEEN???
    I missed you so much :(
    *cries*

    Speaking about the content of this post, I have the bigger cart, two bigger carts. I bought them at last doll convention I attended, one year ago. The seller couldn't speak in italian or in english, so I used body language. A friend told me I looked like I was dancing a Pussycat Dolls coreography

    1. LOL, Sergio! I'm now imagining you doing lots of hip thrusts to describe a grocery cart.

      I've been in a crappy mood for a long time so I was playing hermit and not blogging.

  13. Witaj Muff! Wózek sklepowy jest wspaniały! Może mógłby być trochę wyższy, ale i tak jest ok! Poza tym jest fantastycznie wykonany i wygląda jak prawdziwy! Szkoda, że nie ma u nas podobnych :-)
    Pozdrawiam Cię serdecznie!

    1. Dzięki Olla! Szkoda, że to nie jest wyższy, ale nie bardzo wyglądają jak prawdziwe i jest ciężki też.

  14. Hi Muff, so glad you're OK :D
    These carts look like they'd be perfect for Blythes since their body is shorter than Barbie's.
    I must say though, that since Barbie is supposed to be a model isn't it expected for her to be a bit too big for things?
    Fashion models are 6 feet tall. One of my close friends is one and she often looks like she's somewhat tall for things everyone of average height uses. Next to a real shopping cart she looks a bit over scale just like your Barbie.

    1. That is an excellent point, Maricha! My J-Dolls and other short statured dolls will look fine. I forgot Barbie is like 6'2.

      Yes, I'm A-ok. I was just being a Negative Nelly and didn't feel like posting because every other word would have been a-hole this and mother-effer that. Sometimes you just got to step away.

  17. Sometimes it is hard to tell from photos what size something is. Even things that I saw in the thrift store that I though would work well for Barbie didn't when I got it home. And you can sometimes photograph things in such a way that it may be hard to tell that it is not the size you would have liked. I have a pink cart I want to paint gray. Good to see you!

    1. Ms. Leo, when I first started collecting I used to carry a doll with me because I couldn't judge the size of things. I figured out I really just needed a doll arm, not the whole doll.
