My Scooby Stuff - Item 407 - Corey LaJoie Race Car

Item 407 - Corey LaJoie Race Car 


I pre-ordered this Corey LaJoie 1:64 Die-Cast car on September 12, 2019 from LionelRacing.com. I chose the smallest size because it was $7.99 plus tax and shipping. I got 10% off, which was only $0.80. The total cost was $12.92. The car also comes in 1:24.

The race car features Scooby-Doo and Shaggy and is painted with similar colors as The Mystery Machine. While Lionel Racing no longer has the car available, you can try store.nascar.com or try Amazon.


The sides of the car have the number 32 on them, Scooby and Shaggy, the 50th logo, Corey LaJoie's name above the door, CorvetteParts website and some other stickers. I think it's really kind of funny that the car is a Mustang and it is advertising CorvetteParts.net. I am not a fan of Mustangs at all, but I do really like Corvettes. I would love to own a 78 Corvette Pace Car with the official Pace Car decals!


The front of the car has Scooby and Shaggy with the 50th Anniversary logo next to them. It has Mustang on the front and the Ford and Mustang logos.


The back of the car also has Scooby and Shaggy on it, the Ford logo, a sticker for CorvetteParts.net, the 50th Anniversary logo, and the number 32. I don't know that race cars typically have license plates, but I do think the toys should have one.


Here is a look at the top of the car.


And at the bottom of the car.


The car is packaged in this box that has Corey LaJoie on it. The car is for ages 4 and up.


The other side of the box has the Action Racing Collectables logo.


The car is packaged really well. It was in the box and surrounded by plastic.


One side of the box has the bar code and NASCAR logo.


The other side has some more info about the scale of the car, and shows that it is limited edition.


The bottom of the box has the Lionel Racing logo, copyright info, warnings, and shows the car is copyright 2019 and made in China.

My Scooby Stuff - Item 406 - Scooby Silver Coin

Item 406 - Scooby Silver Coin


This Scooby-Doo silver coin is pretty sweet! It is a 1 oz. silver proof coin from The Perth Mint. The coin is 99.99% pure silver and was designed by Natasha Muhl. I got this coin from a co-worker who reads my posts every day and who felt that I have helped him and his wife a lot and they wanted to do something nice for me. :)


Only 5,000 of these coins were made and each one comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.


The coin itself is really cool! It is in a clear acrylic case, which will keep it protected and makes it easier to display. I love that Scooby is in color! It adds so much to the coin.


The back of the coin features Queen Elizabeth II. The back also shows that it is 1 oz. and worth One Dollar.


The other side of the Certificate of Authenticity has information about the coin and about Scooby-Doo the series.


They packaged the coin really well. The coin itself was in a black box with The Perth Mint in the bottom left corner. That black box was in a full color box that features Scooby and the gang.


The front of the box has the whole gang and the Scooby-Doo logo.


The sides of the box have the design we've seen on a lot of the newly released Scooby merchandise. I like this design, it adds a little flair to the packaging and makes it a little more fun.


The back of the box has the gang, the info for The Perth Mint, the barcode, and the copyright date of 2018.

My Scooby Stuff - Item 405 - Scooby-Doo Push Puppet

Item 405 - Scooby-Doo Push Puppet


I got this amazing Scooby-Doo push puppet from Andrew, a fellow Scooby fan. We traded the push puppet for 5 of the Playmobil figures.

This push puppet is really cool! You push the button on the bottom and he falls down. When you let go of the button, he stands back up.



Check out my video to see how it works.


From the sides, you can tell it's Scooby. His collar is red instead of teal and he has legs and feet that remind me of a reindeer. You can see the joints in the legs that make him collapse when the button is pressed.


He looks like Scooby from the back too, again with the reindeer legs and feet.


This Scooby-Doo push puppet is copyright 1977 by Imperial Toy Corp.


The push puppet was make in Hong Kong.

My Scooby Stuff - Item 404 - Green Scooby Funko Pop Figure

Item 404 - Green Scooby Funko Pop Figure


I finally completed my Scooby-Doo Funko Pop collection!! My hubby won an auction on eBay for the green flocked Scooby a few days ago and he came in the mail today. I'm so excited!!! I finally have them all!!


The sides of the box are the normal sides for a Funko Pop figure. You can see a picture of the Pop figure on one side, though he's not green, and you can see the side of the actual Pop figure on the other side.


The back of the box shows the brown Scooby and the gang. Green Scooby, along with the other colored Scooby's and the original brown and brown flocked Scooby, is number 149. The back of the box is indented a little under Scooby's nose.


Here is a picture of Green Scooby that shows off his collar.


Green Scooby is super cute!


Even from the sides, he's adorable.


This is a close-up of Scooby in the box.


The top of the box has the top of Scooby's head and the Pop and Funko logos.


The bottom of the box has the warnings and other info. The Green Scooby Funko Pop figure is copyright 2017.

ScoobyAddicts Turns 13!!


I can't even believe that ScoobyAddicts.com is 13 today!! On this day in 2007, I made ScoobyAddicts.com live. I created the site for myself so I could try to keep all of the information I learned about Scooby-Doo in one place. The added benefit was that it could be seen by anyone else that loves Scooby-Doo!

I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of the ScoobyAddicts community! I started the website for me, but it is really cool that Scooby fans are enjoying it as well! It's nice to have people to talk to and share news with.

When I started the website, I had no idea what was in store for Scooby's future! Thankfully, he's been going strong all this time. 2019/2020 has been a great time for Scooby-Doo!

I'm excited for what the future holds for Scooby and the gang!

My Scooby Stuff - Item 403 - Scooby Phone Case

Item 403 - Scooby Phone Case


I've had a pretty rough week, so when I got this Scooby-Doo phone case I ordered last week in the mail, it made me a little happy. I chose this one because it is bright and fun.

I  don't think the case is very protective. If I drop my phone, this case probably will not do much to keep it from getting damaged, however, I really like the way it looks.

I purchased this case on Amazon for $10.99 and free shipping. The case is copyright 2019.
