Yay my toy box is here! What a fun collection to play with :)

2 Rose February 16, 2012 at 7:14 am

OMG Hate this release!

3 leslie0914 February 16, 2012 at 7:37 am

I agree Rose….I’m passing even on token mini’s. Not my “cup of tea”.

i sent the expando-head to a dear friend, as she enters the amazing mini contests. she is quite clever and wins sometimes., so maybe she’ll have a great line for her.

other than that, my first impression was, “oh, crap”…and i haven’t bought anything else. we want rain by itself, but not like that either, pogo! what a dud!

Except for a couple items, today´s was worse release I have ever seen !

6 GAIL February 16, 2012 at 8:09 am

Where did you find the toy box goNIL?

7 On the Beach February 16, 2012 at 8:09 am

The collectors box is cute, doll and maybe mini mine but I don’t care for much else. I was so excited waiting for new items but once again have been let down.

8 On the Beach February 16, 2012 at 8:40 am

The taking a little ride is cute also.

9 sandeye February 16, 2012 at 9:06 am

I agree Rose#2 not my cup of tea either. I guess if i had kids I might think its cute . But I’m past the playing doll stage..give us grown up stuff.

10 Lisa February 16, 2012 at 9:08 am

Im suprised that so many of you dont like the new release. I LOVE it all….well most of it anyway. There are so many things that these items can be used for. Everyone is not going to like the same things, thats what makes us different and unique. :)

11 Sjaan13 February 16, 2012 at 9:24 am

I looked at these they are interesting. The background called counting dots, one way backgrounds are well done since you see dots or squares or arrows going either way.

The background called Taken’ a Little Riding (gem) is interesting. I tried putting with it MiniMini which you can not see driving the car. I bought MiniMini since I can hide is in other gem backgrounds.

Did anyone notice this. You’re a Doll, male and female. You can get both on shop woman’s but not on shop men’s.

Anyway when I look at the closet I take want I like and leave the rest.

I LOVE this release I guess I haven’t outgrown Paper-Dolls ! LOL
I got all the token items & gifted what I could. You all beat me to the mall again! lmbo I think I like Mouse House the best

13 MomsBassetHound February 16, 2012 at 10:12 am

Some really cute things!!

With all the different people on Pogo they aren’t going to please everyone all the time. And there are some that they will never please.


14 WMlovesMJ February 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

Oh my gosh, I thought so much was too cute. I love the expando-head aside from the hair but still love it none the less. I will definitely get most of the token items. Of course I missed out on so much that I’m not to the point where I wish we could clear closet out. I hope you all have a wonderful day, take care and God Bless. Hugs

Toy Box/Collector’s box clarification:

I, too, was confused about what this item was: It is not a toy box like normally think of like a bin or a tub. This is a box you display a favorite toy IN that would be for collector editions of dolls, etc. It is the pink square that looks like a frame. It is actually called “Mini in a Box”


16 popcornlady February 16, 2012 at 10:27 am

repeat offerings.. again.. what else is new?
not impressive.. and way too many gem items!
not much new. would rather have more clothes. regular everyday stuff!

17 kathy February 16, 2012 at 11:07 am

18 Ashley February 16, 2012 at 11:21 am

anyone else realize that the “mini mini” for men has a woman’s face?… just another pogo mistake right? geeeeez.

19 BonBon February 16, 2012 at 11:29 am

This release is just ‘down right creepy’ :-|

20 SooZen1 February 16, 2012 at 11:45 am

Well, I like this release very much. I thought it was creative and cute. Like has been said, you can’t please everyone but I was pleased as punch. :)

21 minty222 February 16, 2012 at 11:47 am

ashley #18, i saw that too. nice to know it wasnt my eyes playing tricks on me.. i think my new ‘mini mini’ will grace some of the backgrounds that i have, that the larger mini blocks out. i have often thought it would be nice to have the option to leave the mini out and just show some of the nice backgrounds by themselves…and this gives me a way to sort of do that. right now i put her on an island.. and i think she looks like she’s standing on the beach… just from a distance. i wasnt overall impressed with the release, but did get a few items.

22 sandeye February 16, 2012 at 11:54 am

Sorry wasn’t trying to offend any1 …..just saying I wasn’t crazy about it , it is diffently cute for those who enjoy..& yes they need to make something for ev1s tastes…lol…thats why i liked the slobbering dog….LOLOL enjoy your mini day ev1….:)

23 Ecarclay February 16, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Another joke is on us, These releases are getting worse and worse .Where are the clothes never any new clothes all kinds of backgrounds and no clothes.

24 Joyfulellyn February 16, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Woohoo! I love this release, and the box is finally here (insert dancing spike here).

25 mellowmaddy1 February 16, 2012 at 2:06 pm

what a great release. i had to restrain myself and i only bought 4 gems items where i usually only buy 1 gem item if that. i was thinking that this is such a great release. i’m sure i will end up going back and getting a couple more items. keep up the great work pogo

26 starrynight February 16, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I admit it’s not my cup of tea either, but I have to give props to the Mini animators, they did a really good job! I won’t be buying much from this release, but I know there are others who love it and I have to give props when it’s due. :-)

I would love some more clothes though, lol.

27 goNILor4p February 16, 2012 at 2:18 pm

I have to post again because I love, love, love my mini right now! and her caption is well Fantastic! lol.

28 BrendaH February 16, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Popcorn # 16 – the first 18 items on mine are new. I wouldn’t consider that amount as re-released.
I got all tok items I didn’t already have. Still holding off on spending more gems for awhile.
I LOVE getting the mini mini’s. I like, (as others pointed out), that it can be hidden to look like there is no mini. I really wish we could omit having a mini at all for some backgrounds.

If nothing else, I think the artists were very imaginative, for sure!
They deserve credit for their creativity.

29 dj5lee February 16, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I only got the mini mini and will use her in BGs my regular mini obscures. It would be fun to have a wardrobe for her.

30 Kathi February 16, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I love the entire grouping. I can get creative with so many of these items. But I adore all things mini. Enjoy

31 jigsawing February 16, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Love the mini Mini! Sure would be nice to have a little family of those.
(Listening, Pogo?)

32 popcornlady February 16, 2012 at 5:07 pm

dancing on ceiling -old bought it last ear around halloween
the collection itself with the toys and toy room came out last year with the toy story theme . buzz lightyear and woody and the cowgirl were here with the toy room. the toy soldiers as well there are only 5 of the items in the release that are actually new. the actual release is old!

33 popcornlady February 16, 2012 at 5:09 pm

i forgot the mini mini. still not impressive!

34 MomsBassetHound February 16, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Brenda #28 – I agree with you….according to the information on the mini items the first 18 items are brand new as of 2/16/12. The next 6 items have been in the mall before.


35 mspatmac February 16, 2012 at 7:39 pm

I was happy to see dancing on the ceiling back because I missed it the first time around. I was a late bloomer with mini’s but once I started, oh boy, what fun. Loved paper dolls and now love my mini.

The mini mini is one of my favorites with this release and honestly, when I first saw them this am it was oh well, but after receiving some lovely gifts and went back for long look and I really think they are cute. Had to buy a few. The dolls and display box are to cute and the little red car is so cool. I realized I could be fairly creative, hope I do them justice.

Lesson learned, look at them, then look again and finally look one more time before I jump to a conclusion. By the way, Dancing on the Ceiling is Fred Astaire from the movie Royal Wedding for those who might not know. Pretty close to the movie set too.

I too would like more clothing but mixing old and new works for newbies and us oldies who missed them the first time around. Good mix today. <3

36 Lura February 16, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I count 18 total new items, 10 of which are token items. :) That’s a pretty decent-sized release for a plain old Thursday.

37 popcornlady February 16, 2012 at 10:02 pm

ok i stand corrected. you guys win.wasnt supposed to be an arguement its not that important!
seems like everyone is ready to fight on pogo these days. sure be glad when it calms back down again. i have had to mute a lot of players lately and no not for me fighting with them. just the complaining and rudeness overall.

38 Ann Y. February 16, 2012 at 11:58 pm

It’s a cute release, not totally my cup of tea either, but I did get the beaded border which I thought was fun. I also made sure that I got all the Adventure items that were free as well.

39 BrendaH February 17, 2012 at 10:30 am

popcorn # 37,
Sorry you see some posts as wanting to fight or argue. That was/is not my intention either.
* As for me *
I merely stated facts about what my account showed.
As for what someone thinks – we all have our own opinion.
Opinions aren’t necessarily right or wrong, but we each have a right to our own.
I absolutely agree with you that there seems to be more & more disturbing chat in game rooms. There are some whose sole purpose on Pogo is to stir things up. I’m sorry for them, something is missing in their life. They crave attention *whether good or bad* it’s just attention they want.
Sad to think that is the way they choose to ‘communicate’ with others.
If it goes too far, I mute those individuals or choose a different room.

I hope you read over the posts that offended you with a different outlook & see that you were not being personally attacked.

40 widow February 17, 2012 at 11:15 am

a few f you convinced me to think it over, and maybe, just maybe i can come up w/ some ideas for these things. went to my 2nd acct and sent myself and a few others 5 token items…

now, for the gem items, ummm…i do like the little car, and i MAY purchase expando head, lol.

just never know when a good idea might pop up, so thanks for all your responses. ;-)

*+*+*Sprinkling A little Happiness Into The Comments*+*+*+*
(I think we are all Bummed Out due to DHS Dump)

Of the releases I only recognized 4 : Hamster Wheel, Heavenly Hill,
Playroom & Shrunk. & I did think there were too many Gem items.
I only got the Token items. Was hoping for some new Outfits, but happy with these *Toy * items because I can *Play Dolls* @ (___) Year’s Old ((((not telling age! LOL)))) & the *Freebies* I really liked,
got the *Indi *Anna* Jones (type) costume on my mini

Ashley # 18 I thought the Mini-Mini-Male looked Female also

dj5lee #29 Oh! I was thinking along the same lines, but I will use the Mini-Mini in some of the Fairy or Gnome BG’s . And, did you try her in Mouse-House? its so cute! Thanks also 4 the tip on using Mini-Mini with BG’s that get lost with a full size model

Popcornlady #16 , thought the same / too many Gem items. OH & your #37 comment …..I’ve been seeing so much *Chat- Fighting* going on also ((((EEEK!!!)))) Wonder whats up with that ???

xxx *B*
