The Spring 2014 theme is online, & LPSC is celebrating turtles!
I'm so thankful for all the support this site receives - so many Littlest Pet Shop collectors have sent in photos and information that are helping to build our knowledge of this wonderful toy line from our childhood.  Since Joey started actively collecting LPS, he has been such an amazing friend to LPSC, providing countless photos and scans as well as helping with fact checking...and just recently, he sent me some never-before-seen images and descriptions of the prototype Country Fun Pets turtle family!!

Collecting / Prototypes & Limited Release
I am incredibly excited to share some fantastic new prototype information with you...photos & info on the unreleased Country Fun Pets turtle family have been posted, including the set's "official" name!  Many thanks to Joey for sharing these wonderful scans.  Also, photos and info related to the Sea World Mini Assortment have been added - thanks to Joey for the images and loves toys for the workbook information!

Spring cleaning! The Paper Accessory Index has been removed...paper accessories are now listed with their respective sets in the ID Reference rather than in a separate index.  Promotional pamphlets and mail-in offers have been moved to the Advertisements page.

ID Reference / Assortment
I think I can safely promise that this is the last bit of renaming/reorganizing that I will do for the ID Reference! ;)  The "Series" menu has been renamed the "Assortment" menu - after looking through various Kenner toy catalogs and seeing that they always referred to the Ready to Go Pets, Pet Presents, etc. as "Assortments", I decided I should follow suit and do the same here.  Many apologies for any confusion this causes...like I said, I'm going to stop tinkering!

Updated April 22, 2012

ID Reference
The ID Reference has been reorganized a bit, and hopefully that won't make things too confusing. ;)  I've renamed a few terms to make the organization of the LPS toy line a bit clearer and to give you more options for identifying pets/sets...I'm now referring to larger groupings of sets within the LPS toy line as "Collections" (which I previously called "Assortment") - i.e., the Zoo Collection, Country Fun Pets Collection, etc.  I'm using the term "Assortment" to identify smaller groups of sets that are within a Collection (I previously referred to these smaller groups as "Sub-Assortment") - i.e., the Newborn Families Assortment within the Country Fun Pets Collection.  Then there are individual Sets within each Assortment. 

I've accordingly added a Sort by Assortment menu, which lists all of the various LPS Assortment (Pet Presents, Ready to Go Pets, etc.) in alphabetical order, and I've renamed the old Assortment menu "Sort by Collection".  Is that confusing enough?? ;)  Explanations of the sorting method for each menu are on the main ID Reference page.  Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments!

Updated February 28, 2012

New layout for Spring 2012 is up!  
In an effort to make LPSC easier to use for more people, I've removed the inline-frame that was previously used for navigating the ID pages.  Also, the Jump 'n Splash Frogs are welcoming the spring season in this new design!  It's a little early, but the sun is out, and I'm ready for spring. :)

ID Reference 
The ID reference guide has been moved to its own section and has gone through some remodeling...besides adding two new sorting options for navigation (more on that below), I've reformatted all of the information sections to make them easier to read.  Also, credits for photos, etc. are now listed at the bottom of each set's information rather than directly underneath every photo.

ID Reference / Sort by Species
This is a new menu for identifying your pets and sets!  All of the Littlest Pet Shop sets have been organized according to the species of animals in each set.  

ID Reference / Visual ID
Yet another new menu to aid in set identification.  The Visual ID guide features thumbnail photos of all of the LPS sets, sorted by species.  If you have a particular pet and aren't sure what year it was released, what Assortment it was in, or what the name of its set was, this is a great way to identify it.

ID Reference / Sparkling Ponies
Courtesy of Strawberry Fair, frontcard and backcard photos have been added for all four Sparkling Ponies.

Collecting / Prototypes & Limited Release and Development 
Photos of a pre-production prototype of the Swimming Ducklings have been added!

Site / Site Map
Since I've rearranged some pages, I thought it would be helpful to provide a Site Map.

Updated June 23, 2011
- The Summer 2011 layout is up, and the whole site has been redesigned!  I got rid of the frames in order to make navigation a bit less cumbersome (hopefully).  The G1 LPS collection - organized by year and by Assortment - now features an inline frame for navigation; this will allow for you to more easily link to information on a specific LPS set without losing the rest of the menu.  Please let me know if you encounter any design or content errors in the site - and any feedback on the new layout (especially the collection navigation menu) would be greatly appreciated! :)
