5.0 out of 5 stars all the classic Toy Dolls songs 18 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
After ten more or less successful years of hard and great work, the Toy Dolls released this Best-Of-Album with 16 (now even more professional) re-recorded tracks including their very first single "Tommy Kowey's Car" and all the best songs of the past ten years. If you like the incomparable punky style of the Toy Dolls you will love this album, which is a bit quieter than the newer explosive ones. But this absolutely doesn't make it a boring release. Buy it and Enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars So catchy it should be illegal!! 25 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ten years of toys is a wonderful toy dolls album,if you like the toy dolls. It includes such classics as "She goes to Finos" and "Harry Cross"(The catchiest song in the world!!) Another plus is that, if you ever wanted to hear Olga pretending to take a bath(I definitly have!), your prayers have finally been answered(Track 1- Florence is deaf). Warning: the toy dolls are not for everyone. Some people are kind of surprised at the music. Don't buy the cd unless you have heard their music first.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing mix of punk/pop w/ a killer attitude! 21 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely one of the best CD's in my 400 cd collection which contains everything from Air to Led Zeppelin,etc. Lead Singer Olga has a strong, charismatic personality with his accent and attitude. The songs are great punk/pop songs- a little on the silly side at times but only in the best of ways. The guitar is also amazing. Buy this, and venture into the Toy Dolls' world.
4.0 out of 5 stars Toy Dolls Early Greatest HIts 14 May 2014
By Robert W. Gomez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I got this back when it came out and it was about the only way to get Toy Dolls on CD here in the States (I only had the first LP on vinyl at the time). I absolutely loved it at the time. Now, more than 20 years later, I still like the compilation but I can hear its flaws.

First and foremost these are not the original versions of the songs (in the case of songs from the Idle Gossip, it's an improvement over that LP's terrible production). I imagine this was just a way for the new record label to cash in on the band's early hits without securing the rights to the original recordings (The tracks from Bare Faced Cheek are all the LP versions). For the most part, Toy Dolls are a consistent and professional band so new renditions aren't going to differ much from the originals. However, listen closely... they are using a drum machine on 90% of the tracks! When I finally noticed this it almost killed this record for me. The drums are just so perfect and sterile sounding, especially when compared to skilled playing on their later records.

That said, it took me a decade to realize that those weren't real drums. So, if you want a good overview of some of the bands finest songs this is a nice place to start.

The Toy Dolls are a great punk band. I admit if you havent ever heard them listen before you buy cuz you might be surprised. Their lyrics are silly similar to a NoFx song, This is a great cd. Also awesome guitar.
