I went to the dollar store recently and went around looking for the ten most interesting (and hopefully useful!) photo props that I could see that were listed at only $1 each and here’s what I came up with:

  1. Paper drink umbrellas
  2. Food-shaped erasers
  3. Dolly chair (bright yellow plastic but probably easily painted over with the right type of paint)
  4. Small stuffed animals (~3″ tall)
  5. Fabric butterflies (supposed to be used as room decorations, I think)
  6. Party streamers (2 packages for $1)
  7. Plastic martini glasses (supposed to be for wedding favours)
  8. Mini bells (supposed to be Christmas tree decorations)
  9. Earrings (replace your doll’s earrings or use the charms as a holdable item?)
  10. Mini playing cards keychain (don’t your girls want to engage a little poker game?)

While all dollar stores are different and they offer different products all the time and might not even have the same item in stock from one day to the next – it’s always fun to do some exploring and go through all the aisles and see what there is to see. Go into the store with just enough cash for one or two items to keep without your monthly dolly budget!

    Dollar stores are the best! I have also gotten little fake grass mats, lily pads, fake flowers, jewelry boxes for little dressers, holiday decorations and so many little toys. The ones here sometimes have bratz clothes that work for monster high.
