Micro polly pocket miniature 80’ 90’s toys by FairyIna

“Micro” miniature radio, USSR, 1965-69. Unlike many advanced Soviet designs, which were produced in a unique copy - for reporting purposes only - and then were placed on shelves of their designers, “Micro” was mass produced in tens of thousands of copies with most of them being exported to the USA and Europe, where they were in great demand. Khrushchev proudly gave this miracle of Soviet microelectronics as presents to his high-ranking colleagues, including Queen Elizabeth II.

I made more micro rubber ducks, these are now available in my online shop, I made tiny ducks approx 3mm in size, they are in a tiny pond with a lily pad and a fluffy cloud dangling from above
The bottle measures 1.5cm, it can be kept as a miniature ornament or I can make it into a wearable necklace by adding a chain x

Hope you like my micro scene, it was very tricky to make x

Microscopic Miniature Monday!  

Few books in the world are smaller than this set: Calendar and Birth Stone: Toppan Micro Trio, from the Toppan Printing Company, 1979-80. This set includes: Birth Stone, Language of Flowers, and The Zodiacal Signs and Their Symbols. 2x2 millimeters, each with a copy 10x larger that is easier to read. From the Charlotte Smith Miniature Book Collection.

Can’t get enough of tiny books?  It was just over a year ago that another Toppan book in our collection made news in The Atlantic after we posted here on Tumblr about trying to identify a micro-miniature Bible, which was revealed to be a Toppon Bible from the 1960s.  But the Toppan company did not stop at 2mm.  Here is a link to read about the 0.75 mm book they made just last year!

Enjoy the beloved books in your life, large or small :)

See all Miniature Monday posts.

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone 🎉💕🍷❤️✋🍻🎁🍺🎈

Thanks for all your continuing support this year, I have an EXCITING year ahead so thanks for following me, ❤️Love y'all❤️

1:6th Scale Barbie Toy Store Diorama - Mattel Toy Store Play Set, Basic Fun Key Chains, Polly Pocket Bluebird houses, Hallmark Ornaments, Micro Action  Figures, Playskool, Little Tikes, and Fisher Price dollhouse replica toys, mini Barbies, Capsule toys, Re-ment Strawberry, tiny Lego-like blocks from Michael’s Crafts, a 1:144th Garfield my friend made for me, and a Tupperware Key Chain. Feel free to ask about anything I didn’t list. The background is paper covered foam core. The Lundby miniature replica is one that I made. A real children’s store called “Twilo” was my inspiration for the tree and owls design elements. I have been collecting miniature toys for several years, and I thought it would be fun to do a store scene where I could put most of them together in one place.

Miniature Street Art with @slinkachu_official

For more photos from the micro level, follow @slinkachu_official on Instagram.

Slinkachu’s (@slinkachu_official) miniature installations bring street art to the micro level. “Working very low to the ground has given me a different perspective,” says the London-based artist, whose real name is Stuart Pantoll. “And now I’m a bit obsessed with finding hidden nooks in the city.” Slinkachu creates worlds and leaves them behind in neighborhoods all over London, along with cities he travels to, including Berlin, Beijing and Doha, Qatar. “Although every city is different, they’re actually quite similar at the ground level,” he says. “The experiences are universal.”
