C.U.T.I.E. - Lovey Doveys

Flea Market Finds: 1986 Mattel C.U.T.I.E’s Lovey Dovey 10 Pack

So I was poking around the Flea Market the other day having no success when boom! Right there in front of me. A Still in the package box of C.U.T.I.E.S or Cutest Tiny Individuals on Earth… an 1986 toy by Mattel meant to cash in on the somewhat powerhouse toy they also produced. M.U.S.C.L.E, I have no idea what M.U.S.C.L.E stands for despite having millions of them when I was a kid and a ton of them today. I’m also too lazy to look it up. It’s a good thing it says what C.U.T.I.E stands for right on the package..

You guys know about M.U.S.C.L.E right? They were tiny pink wrestlers and also TOTALLY AWESOME! One of my faves at the time. I was so into them.

Anyway, BOOM! Like I said. There they were and I was all like…”They must be mine”. I don’t know why really. They are girl toys and not really that awesome of a girl toy at that but after a day of Flea Market Strikeouts I needed a win.

So I approached the dude who had em’ out on his blanket and he threw out the awesome price of 3 dollars. I mean, they must have cost more when they came out right? So anyway, I could see that dude was really thinking 1 dollar when he said 3 but in the spirit of being cool I countered with 2 and he jumped at it. Now The C.U.T.I.E’s are mine!

This particular pack is called The Lovey Doveys and it had 10 gals with names like Tutu Much or Leah Tard ( I love that last name.. ) Mrs.Sippie and Holly Woodstar…Awesome ya? What a bunch.

I don’t know, it’s always cool to bring home something straight out of The Eighties, especially a toy right? I know, it’s a girl toy, but it’s still cool.

To be honest if I came up on these back in my MUSCLE day I think the CUTIES might have joined the ranks and became lady wrestlers or something. I wasn’t the type to waste a toy. If you gave it to me I’d prolly use it!
