New arrivals for February - Frozen yogurt, Stained-glass cookies, Jawbreakers and more!

Dear Littlest Sweet Shoppers

Sorry for the delay for this month's new arrival. I have 3 commissions running at the same time right now since the launch of the Fast Food range so I am glad that my new and old clients love them enough to order some for their dolls.

Here is a quick update on what is new for February 2018 in our shop. They can now all be commissioned and custom made to your liking. Since February is our coldest and greyest month yet, there are no 'group' photos for all of the new items. I'm hoping spring will come soon so we can do the group photos again. 

Our first new item is an updated version of our candy suckers (tootsie roll). They are now individually wrapped in plastic like a real one. Even better, we also offer the plastic jar and display top for the lollipops so you can display it on a counter. We have developed the plastic jar using vacuum forming technique but we can also make it in glass so you have more clarity to view the items inside the jar. The lid has been 3D modelled and printed to look just like a real Chupa Chups display. 
This lollipop display jar is perfect for any miniature sweet shop. Jar and lid made by Littlest Sweet Shop
Choose from 6 different colours/flavours
Another new candy is the famous Jawbreaker! They are a large ball of candy with random paint splatter design all over. This candy will keep your dolls occupied for hours since it will take forever for them to reach the middle (actual miniature not edible). Since this is a larger type of candy, order a few and have them packaged individually so you can also display it in your miniature sweet shop!

We are now serving Frozen Yogurt in cute paper containers with 10 different toppings to choose from! Yogurt flavours include original (white), strawberry and chocolate - just select which yogurt you want with the topping of your choice.

Here are all of the 10 different toppings that you can get:
Chocolate yogurt with Oreo cookie crumbs
Chocolate yogurt with pink meringue
Strawberry yogurt with 100s and 1000s
Strawberry yogurt with sliced strawberries and blueberries
Chocolate yogurt with bananas and caramel
Frozen yogurt with rainbow belt candy
Black Forest yogurt - cherries, blueberry sauce and grated dark chocolate
Frozen yogurt with chocolate sauce and chopped nuts
Frozen yogurt with gummy bears
Frozen yogurt with our own Fruity Loops cereal pieces
We have a new gelatin mold which is more mid-sized so we made jellies in so many new colours!
In the middle we have our larger creation in rainbow colours. These samples were made from a gelatin simulator so it wobbles and looks like real jelly! Unfortunately this is only available to UK and European clients.

Each jelly looks wobbly and wet, just like a real one! All pink plates are made by Littlest Sweet Shop
Pecan Pie has now been added to our selection of pies. They are great for Thanksgiving dinners or Christmas dinners.

These stained-glass cookies come in heart or flower shape for now but you can choose any colour for the candy centre. The 'stained glass' part is extremely translucent like real candy.

Last but not least, we are now selling the bowls that we made for our home ice cream sundaes. They are made from resin and come in very sweet pastel colours. I will try to add more and more new items to our dishware range so you will have a large selection to choose from.
Miniature ice cream sundae bowls come in pretty pastels
That's it for now. Join us again next month for more new items including some 1:3 scale creations and the new ice cream cone sculpt for 2018. I am also currently working on making cupcakes in 1:12 scale since it is one item that has been in huge demand from some clients. I am way too busy to update the YouTube channel right now but don't forget to follow me on social media to see all of the updates streamed to you live.

New range - Littlest Fast Food

Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

It's an exciting day today at Littlest Sweet Shop as you can see we have a new range of fast food products. There were more miniatures added to the website this month but today we will only focus on the Littlest Fast Food range since it is a BIG one!

We started developing this new range since the end of last year and used so many techniques like vacuum forming and 3D printing. I even learnt how to use Adobe Illustrator to design the logo, packaging and boxes. All of these combined with traditional polymer clay modelling to create a highly detailed set of new products that you can mix and match to create the perfect fast food meal for your doll. The food is made to look super realistic and everything can be custom made to your liking. You can take each burger or nugget out of their boxes and have fries (or chips as we call it England) dipped in ketchup. Have a bite taken off the apple pie or have a soda cup filled only half full. The choice is yours and limited to your own imagination!
Full catalogue of Littlest Fast Food miniatures
Co-ordinate your perfect fast food meal by selecting some items from across the menu. Choose a main, side, drink, dessert, condiment, and additional accessories such as the serving tray. So many different meals you can tailor make to satisfy your doll's hunger. 
Hamburger, condiments, small cheeseburger, fries, cola drink, and strawberry sundae
Chicken burger, apple pie, curly fries and vanilla milkshake
2 Small cheeseburgers, fries, nuggets with packaged condiments, strawberry soda, and chocolate sundae 
Chicken nuggets, condiments, onion rings, and grape soda
Apple Pie, Chicken burger, curly fries and vanilla milkshake
Apple pies and drinks. Sometimes you just want something sweet!
For the mains we have burgers and nuggets. Hopefully in the upcoming months we will expand this menu with more burgers and other items like fried chicken. Smaller hamburgers like the cheeseburger will be wrapped in paper with no box. 
Littlest Hamburgers
Hamburger close up. Sesame bun with beef patty, lettuce, cheese with ketchup and mustard
Cheeseburgers. Smaller than a hamburger. Perfect size for kids!
Chicken burger. Crispy breaded chicken patty with lettuce, cheese and mayonaise
Chicken nuggets with a selection of condiments
We recommend that you purchase a pack of BBQ sauce condiment with gold foil seal for the nuggets. The seal can also be opened and resealed again!
We did not forget about sides and there are 3 different sides to choose from! These pieces are not glued down together so each individual pieces come loose for more play value!
Crunchy onion rings
Classic french fries. Have one or a few dipped in ketchup
All items come loose so you can play and arrange them any way you like
Curly fries comes with a spicy coating
All of that delicious food must be washed down with something sweet and refreshing. We offer every type of soda that you can think off and each of them look so real! Choose to have it with or without the straw and lid. The lid has been vacuum formed from an original mold so it is translucent, light and thin just like the real thing!
Littlest Fast Food soda with straw and lid
Sodas in all colours/flavours. Ice pieces are made from glass for extra realism!
Our dessert menu is small but it is the best way to finish a meal at a Littlest Fast Food restaurant. Choose from milkshakes, apple pies and ice cream sundaes. The ice cream is actually listed in the Ice Cream menu.
Littlest Desserts
The milkshakes look so fluffy and light and even available in chocolate flavour. Choose to have it with or without a straw.
Vanilla and Strawberry milkshake
Our apple pies look so light and crispy and you can even order them broken into 2 parts to expose the filling inside. You can also have a bite taken off from it as well. 
Littlest Apple Pies
Long deep-fried pastry
Delicious apple filling
Fries and chicken nuggets taste better dipped in condiments. You have the option to have the condiment container sealed (you can still open it up) or without the gold seal. There is BBQ sauce, mustard sauce and ketchup in tiny little condiment containers. The containers were also vacuum formed so you can see that it is very translucent and light like real condiment pots. 
BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard sauce
Want to complete your collection? Purchase one of our serving trays that come with the exclusive paper liner. Choose from yellow or white 3D printed trays. Order 2 or more since they are stackable! This is the best way to display your Littlest Fast Food miniatures.
Stackable Littlest Fast Food trays in white or yellow. 3D printed item
So if you want to open your very own Littlest Fast Food restaurant, we even sell empty boxes and cups to stock up on. Some packaging will have Japanese words on them to reflect Littlest Sweet Shop's original style. 
Littlest Fast Food packaging also sold separately without miniature food
If you want to learn how to make some of these miniatures, you can view the full video tutorial on how to make the hamburger and apple pie on our YouTube channel. You can even see how I made the fries, sodas, and chicken nuggets exclusively via our Instagram channel. Keep following us so that you don't miss out on all of these free lessons.

That's all for now. I hope you like this new range and we will be adding more exciting new items like a Happy Meal for kids in the near future. I will also incorporate more packaging designs and 3D printed items because I think that they add more value to the miniatures itself. 

Currently I am busy with a big commission and the next batch of new items for February will be posted next week.
