The First House of Toys

This is the first house where I have displayed and kept all the toys I have collected. This simple house was featured in GMA 7 Mel and Joey. Oh, how I loved trimming the topiaries in the front which are reminiscent of the one's in the movie Edward Scissorhands...at least to me. In this house I feel most at home...of course in the Happy Meal house too.

Percy the Train





Did you know?

Percy is the No. 6 green engine. He is the junior member of Sir Topham Hatt’s railway. Simple Percy is quite content puffing around the yard with no particular desire for adventure in the world outside. Percy is Thomas' best friend and his favorite job is delivering the mail. He is always happy to help and other engines sometimes take advantage of his good nature. Percy is based on 0-4-0 saddle tank engine based on engines from the Avonside Engine Company...or was he based on a green caterpillar with red stripes?

Percy was the source of much friction between Rev. W. Awdry and C. Reginald Dalby, the first illustrator of The Railway Series. Awdry complained that Percy did not look like a real locomotive, an issue that had caused contention between the two men on several occasions and concerning several characters. In the case of Percy, it was particularly infuriating, as Awdry had built a model of the engine in order that the artist could use it as a reference. 

All this came to a head when the book Percy the Small Engine, centering on the eponymous character, was written. Awdry wrote to Dalby a letter requesting that he should make Percy look less like "a green caterpillar with red stripes". The sentence was this: "I beg, pray, and exhort you not to make Percy look like a green caterpillar with red stripes!" Insulted by this, Dalby resigned from the Railway Series. 

Subsequent illustrators modified the design to make Percy look more like a typical industrial locomotive. The television series, however, utilized the original design. 

The phrase "a green caterpillar with red stripes" resurfaces in the later story 'Woolly Bear', in which Thomas uses it as an insult to Percy and amends were made between Awdry and Dalby.

Jollibee experienced rapid growth. It was able to withstand the entry of McDonald's in the Philippines in 1981 by focusing on the specific tastes of the Filipino market, which differed from the American fast food company.

Minion Hydrocycle Surprise



Did you know?

Minions are the numerous creatures that appear in the Despicable Me franchise, which began with the eponymous 2010 film. They are also the official mascots of Illumination Entertainment, a division of Universal Studios, and have been described as being a corporate icon for Universal/Illumination's parent company Comcast on par with Disney's Mickey Mouse following Comcast's purchase of  NBC Universal. The Minions are small, yellow, melodious henchmen who wear overalls and goggles and have one or two eyes. They mostly speak incomprehensible gibberish, which is partly derived from other languages, including Bahasa Indonesia, French, English, Italian, Spanish, and Hindi. Although seemingly nonsensical, the English-sounding words are dubbed for every country, in order to make them recognizable. In Minions it is made clear that they have existed since the beginning of life on Earth, and desire above all else to serve the most terrible of villains.In the short film "Banana", the Minions are revealed to have an uncontrollable craving for fruits, especially bananas. They have most ordinary names, with Kevin, Stuart and Bob being the names of the lead trio in Minions, and Mel being the leader of the Minions in Despicable Me 3.
