Trade goodies + Zelf Giveaway!

Just a couple of weeks back, I received these amazing goodies from 2 lovely ladies on the Zelf Buy Sell Trade group on Facebook:


I was down with a ear infection at that time and having both packages arrive on the same day really cheered me up!

First up are my trade goodies from Kennie :) Couldn't wait to unbox Chocolaa and see what she smelt like lol. She does indeed smell like very sweet chocolate!


I love the mini playsets that come with all the Zelicious series. I wish they'd include more of such accessories in the future. It's a little more fun than just charms and combs. But it would be even better if they included all 3 :P


Next I just had to unbox Flare! I just love her details and color combination. Her colors are very contrasting yet I feel that they complement one another very nicely. Her gold accents are just right and not overly done so it does give her a very prominent look.

For some reason, she was relatively hard to find even though she belongs to the latest series and isn't a rare. I can't thank Kennie enough for Flare! She has got to be my favourite Zelf at the moment!


Flare is supposed to be a Phoenix Zelf but she reminds me so much of this Chinese mythology character called Nezha:

And you can see why when you notice the little flame details on the back of her feet! 


Next are the goodies I received from Debbie! First up is Pandela, whom she traded with me for Angelala. Her paint work is so perfect and I can't stop gushing over how cute she is! Her design is rather simple but I think it potrays the Panda image quite well:


Following that is Birchy, the tree Zelf! Who looks more like a leprechaun in my opinion.


And lastly, Spellinda and Howlette! I didn't have any other Zelfs to trade with Debbie for them but she was so kind to go out of her way to get them for me despite the stuff she had going on for her at that time.


These 2 were the only ones from Series 1 that I was missing so thanks to Debbie, I've managed to complete Series 1!

Bottom left: Angelala, Lunanne, Mermalade, Spellinda, Flamy, Elfa

I also decided that it was time to unbox my very first rare Zelf: Miss Clover! Oh the struggle with whether to keep rare figures in their original packaging or not..


What a cutie!!! She even comes with a glitter finish which makes her all the more unique!


First thing I realised about her was how HUGE her wings were!! Just look at the size of them compared to Buttershy's:


All rare Zelfs have a number and my Miss Clover was number 2980 out of 10 000! Her charm is also made of a different material than the others':


Thank you so much Kennie and Debbie! I am so so so grateful to know such kind and sweet toy collectors! Kennie knew that I was a SF collector as well and even included an extra Sylvanian Families magazine for me! The magazine comes with an exclusive baby squirrel but I've yet to open up it up and read it.

And now..

    3. That's awesome! Zelfs are easier to find there! And if you accumulate 30 dollars worth of Zelf receipts you could send in and get the super rare Cleocat Zelf! I have to buy my Cleocat on ebay ;(
