I have 3 different types of chocolate frog cards in my vast #HarryPotter collection. A couple of weeks ago, I shared some photos of my chocolate frog cards that you can find at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Today, however, I'm sharing some photos of a few vintage chocolate frog cards. These are from 2001 & are about the same size as a baseball card & are individually wrapped. They also appear to be from different sets. Cliodine & Devlin Whitehorn's cards are from a set of 24, whereas Mr. Ollivander's card is from a set of 12. Also, they're not colored/decorated the same on the back. They are all holographic cards like the new ones imitating the movies where magical pictures moved. Scroll ➑️to see the video of Bertie Botts card.

I'm ready for my next adventure!πŸ—½
⚑
Well I did it. My flight is booked & I have 2 shiny tickets to Daniel Radcliffe's new play, The Lifespan of a Fact on Broadway. This will be my first trip to New York & I cannot wait! My goal, other than to see the city of course, will be to get Dan Rad's autograph on my Marauders Map. Then I can die happy. Wish me luck my Instafriends & if you're in NYC the first weekend of October & want to meet-up shoot me a message! πŸ’š

Cards from the Harry Potter Trading Card Game. I don't have all of them, but there are 8 different types of cards; Lessons, Spells, Creatures, Characters, Adventures & Items. Additional cards like Matches & Locations were released later in expansion sets. As you can see, I'm missing Characters, Lessons & Matches cards. It's a 2-person game & the object is to force your opponent to run out of cards first.

I love the Snape card. That is exactly what I pictured when Harry accidentally stumbles upon him & Filch bandaging up his leg in the staffroom in Chamber of Secrets.

These are mini photo albums. They hold a photo about the size of a wallet pic. πŸ“·
⚑
Although these are pretty neat, I always disliked that Scabbers was featured alongside Hedwig, as if they're featuring the beloved pets of Harry Potter. πŸ˜’Hedwig died saving Harry (in the movies) & we all know Scabbers, aka Peter Pettigrew's, story. They certainly improved his look, also. In the books, Scabbers is described as "gray, fat & battered", however in this version he has stars on his back & wears a turquoise bracelet. Not sure what's the deal with that. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
⚑
How do you feel about Scabbers? Lovable pet? He did bite Gregory Goyle when he, Crabbe & Malfoy bullied Ron on the Hogwarts Express. Or accomplice to murder? His cowardice did lead to the death of James & Lily Potter.

Current #AngliaUpdate ! Molly has been moved onto a "rotisserie". Which is pretty much how it sounds. It's a contraption that suspends the car making it easier to work on her from all sides. This will enable the restoration team to be able to sandblast her frame easily. Sandblasting begins soon! πŸ’š

This is a vintage metal pencil box which I use as a memory box. Swipe ➑️ to see what's inside! I keep my @Megacon wristband & King's Cross special event ticket from 2016. There's also my Platform 9 3/4 & Knight Bus ticket. I've got to be sure I have access to all wizard transportation, just in case. Also I keep a bit of wizard money from my Gringotts vault for when I'm traveling w/in wizard communities. πŸ˜‰
⚑
As a wild card, I also keep Bruce Campbell's autograph in my memory box. He had come to Iowa last September as part of his book tour & my sister & I had gone to see him. He was hilarious & we had such a great time. πŸ’š

I really thought I had more chocolate frog cards than this, but these were the only ones I found, so here they are! Two of them, Gilderoy Lockhart & Bertie Bott, were released for the #HPCelebration in 2016 & 2017 respectively. I love how Bertie Bott looks like he's trying to slip a bean into your mouth. Will it be green apple or vomit? You have to chew to find out. πŸ˜‰
⚑
Of course we all remember the scene at the end of Sorcerer's Stone where Dumbledore tries a bean & exclaims, "Alas, earwax." πŸ˜‚
⚑
Who's on your favorite chocolate frog card? 🍫

I'm so excited! Tonight I'm going to meetup w/other Potterlovers for a special #HarryPotter pottery event! I am soo not crafty, so hopefully my chosen project doesn't turn out like πŸ’©. Even if it does, though, it will be great to get together w/some friends that I haven't seen in a long while & talk about our Potter obsessions. πŸ˜‰

What are you doing this weekend?

Today I'm sharing a pic of one of my vintage @mattel statues. This statue depicts the scene where Harry, Ron & Hermione battle the mountain troll in the Sorcerer's Stone.
⚑
Who can forget crazy Quirrell busting into The Great Hall yelling, "TROLL IN THE DUNGEON! Thought you outta know..." πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

This is a fun little wind up toy of Harry in his quidditch gear. There are 2 different versions of this toy. The other version, made by @wbpictures , includes a curved piece of metal w/a golden snitch hanging from it. That version, however, doesn't have any of the jersey detail. My version has the gold striping and the number 7 on the back. Scroll ➑️ to see the video of the toy in action.
⚑
This is another item that makes you wonder what the manufacturer was thinking? What's the deal w/Harry's face? He has an overly promenint chin & he's completely missing his scar.
⚑
If you have any of the collectibles I share, comment & let me know, or tag me in your posts of the HP collectibles you do have! I'd love to see what you've got, especially vintage items. 😊

#HappyFathersDay to all the on-screen father's in the Harry Potter series!
⚑
Also, Happy Father's Day to everyone that's in a non-traditional father role. The world needs fathers of all kinds to raise & teach kids. πŸ’š
