#GhostbustersWeek rolls on with one of the most interesting collectibles...

Who could've predicted that nesting dolls would become such a craze? Perhaps the Russians circa 1890, but over the past couple of years, pop culture-themed nesting dolls have become sought-after collectibles, and one company leading the charge is PPW Toys. Earlier this week we took a look at their GHOSTBUSTERS Classics PopTaters, but today we take a look at something new that they sent us for review - their GHOSTBUSTERS Nesting Dolls - a set that features all four original Ghostbusters - Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz, along with The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Slimer!

Ghostbusters Nesting Dolls

Generally, PPW's nesting dolls come in sets of five, but Slimer is a bonus figure here - a tiny little extra that fits inside Winston. What's cool is that here at Rock Father HQ, we have a few sets of the STAR WARS nesting dolls, and our youngest daughter has now cross-pollinated the GHOSTBUSTERS and STAR WARS universes. Just the other day, BB-8 was hangin' out with Slimer, and that's something special - playtime fueled by pure imagination, and while these dolls might end up on shelves at most places, here they've become a part of the play routine, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Available now from my allies at Entertainment Earth, or direct from the PPW Toys website.
