Last week, once again filling the space between big sister heading off to school and me having to take the little one to Pre-K, Finley decided that she wanted to do some blind bags. Our friends at Just Play had sent over a full box of their PEANUTS Series 1 Collectible Mini-Figures, so the temptation was there. With 12 figures in all, PLUS the "Rare Snoopy" (complete with dog bowl in his mouth), it was time to crack the box and see exactly what we got. Check out the video below!

We'd already opened a couple of these when the box first arrived, Finn being quite a PEANUTS fan these days. The nice thing here is that there wasn't much duplication - my big pet peeve when it comes to the blind bags and boxes. We did have a few duplicates - including a couple that we were able to "feel out" before opening (I added the extra bags to my donation shelf in the garage), and this case did manage to deliver a complete set of 13. There's Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Pigpen, Shroeder, Peppermint Pattie, Marcie, Franklin, Sally, Snoopy, "The World Famous Author "Snoopy, "Flying Ace" Snoopy and the "Rare" Snoopy.

What's interesting to note is that while "The Little Red-Haired Girl" is pictured on the box art, there is no figure in this assortment. This assortment.  Seeing as this is Series 1, you can expect another series later this year.

PEANUTS Collectible Mini-Figures Series 1 blind bags are available now at retailers such as Target and Toys "R" Us.
