Yabba Dabba Doo! Vintage Flintstones

So it's been a while since I've written a post but I haven't really had many thrifty finds to share until now.
Recently I've begun a small collection of vintage Flintstones memorabilia. The Flintstones were one of my favourite childhood cartoons.

Vintage Flintstone Collection in the making

I was delighted to find this Paperback Flintstones mini flip book titled "Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Meet Santa Clause" by Hanna-Barbera. I paid 49 cents for it which was 10 cents less then it originally cost (in Canada) in 1977!

Vintage Canada's Wonderland Dino mug made in Japan for 49 cents. If you are from Ontario, Canada chances are you've been to Canada's Wonderland and visited Hanna~Barbera Land which features characters from the Flintstones and Smurfs.

The Barney vinyl doll was produced by the Knickerbocker Toy Co. for Hanna Barbera Productions and dates from the 1960s. I picked him up for $5 from SA. I'm not really sure why he has green hair? but I love his jovial expression.
Pebbles is made by Kenner Toys and dates from 1970s. After some research I discovered she is a sip-a-long toy. She is supposed to have a tiny straw in her mouth and hang by her hands on the side of a cereal bowl. 

A couple of years ago I dressed up as Wilma Flintstone for Halloween. I bought the faux leopard coat for $25 at a NYC thrift store in the late 90s. 

What are you collecting lately?

Until we thrift again...



  1. I am still envious of that coat. That was a great costume. Nice finds, we picked up the Fintstone's Christmas on DVD this year, a Dickension version. It is very good.

  2. I don't know if I've ever seen anything Flintstones when I'm out and about, but I'll surely be watching now!! The figures are so cute!!

  3. Oh...I love the Flintstones! Your collection is wonderful and your costume rocks! Super fun stuff here lady...Have a great week!

  4. Awwe! Wish I knew, last week there were 2 pretty old (looked never worn) Canada's Wonderland aprons! If they're there next time... want?

    I love that jacket.

    My new collection is key chains.

  5. Great Barney, even with the green hair (and matching toenails!) I'm pretty sure all 4 of the characters (Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty) sported odd colors for hair and clothes. I have a picture of them somewhere around here...

  6. LOve the Flintstones Finds and that pic of you as Wilma is Priceless!
