The Hardy Boys. And all of the times Frank Hardy hooked up with Nancy Drew even though she was dating Ned Nickerson!

Well, they only kinda sorta hooked up, but, from vague memory as I haven’t read the books in decades, I do believe they shared a kiss or two.

My Hardy Boys collection is larger than my Dana Girls and Trixie collections, but nowhere near as large as my Nancy collection. There are still lots of things to buy, and I do limit the books to collectables only. The only series I’ve collected are the US Files with their pics from the 90s tv show on the cover, and I still have a couple to go. The rest are odds and ends of series where Nancy is mentioned or they’re a tv tie-in.

I’ve also made a lot of goodies, and ALL of the pics, as there’s only some of them here, will be on my Pinterest board (LINK HERE) to follow and peruse the full collection.

So here’s the best bits of my Hardy collection…



Still trying to find the final book in the next set.

    Scandal alert! Nancy two-timing Ned with Frank Hardy?! I will say this; I always thought it was weird when Nancy would sometimes, however casually, date other guys throughout the series. I would think, what about Ned?! Then again, despite being an established couple, Nancy and Ned clearly had a very PG relationship, which made these so-called betrayals seem less serious. Oh well. As always, cool stuff. I had no idea there were Hardy Boys dolls. But they had New Kids on the Block dolls, and, I think, ‘N Sync dolls, so why not? Apparently, the Hardy duo set this trend. 🙂

      Lol, Tote. Yes, Nancy certainly had no issue kissing hot boys in the early Files series. It’s no wonder Nancy and Ned broke up a few books later. They also broke up in the On Campus series.
