As a product of the late 70s, 80s, and 90s - and like many others - the pop culture from
this time period is what fed my soul and filled my days with adventures and wonder
ever since I stumbled into the movie theater in 1977 wearing nothing but a diaper and a raggedy Superman tee to checkout the original Star Wars.
Now, back in the day we didn't have a lot money which made most of these toys
out of reach for me and the other kids in my hood. (Yep, I said hood.) So, when I
decided to reconnect and have my own TOY REUNION with my childhood,
these were the things I went hunting for. It was like jumping into the
DeLorean and setting the clock back to FUN and hunting down
all these things I missed out on as a kid made me feel like
Indiana Jones out on the hunt for ancient artifacts.
So, in 2011, with $25 bucks in hand I headed out determined
to see what toys I could rescue and reunite with others like me.
Fast forward to today, where I'm on this continued mission to be a genuine local ambassador and micro-influencer in my local community of Kingman, Arizona while also looking to add to this incredible global, nostalgic conversation about toys, food, and fun in my own geeky way with my web series' focused on bringing you along with me on on my mini-adventures connecting all the nerdy, vintage toy goodness I curate with the food and fun memories we all love to share.
History Channel's Pawn Stars meets
Netflix/Slobby Robbie's, "Slobby's World" meets
MTV/Rob Dyrdek's, "Fantasy Factory"
BUT, with my own BIG MIKE twist!
(Yeah, I think that works?)
Watch the shows. Buy (or sell) some toys. Then, let's get our grub on!
(Sounds like a win-win-win to me!)
I guess I want to be a source of cool nostalgic entertainment along with
running my own vintage toy store that answers your Google search,
"Vintage Toy Store Near Me" no matter where you are!
