The Collecting Hobby
People have been collecting since the beginning of recorded history. In ancient times collecting objects was a way of showing wealth and power, and to some extent, this is still true today.
I have watched a lot of Youtube videos over the past few months, where so-called baseball card collectors are opening up packs, boxes, or cases of new cards; going through cards purchased at flea markets just to find the valuable cards. They are not doing it to complete a base set or to find that one chase or final insert card they need to finish a master set. They are doing it primarily to find valuable cards to make money. This is perpetuating the investor mentality and driving the price of new card boxes or packs up and out of the reach of real collectors, which means that the hobby is being pushed out of reach of the average hobbyist.
If You Were Obsessed With The Bratz Franchise Growing Up; You’re a Baddie, Period.
First off, let me start by saying that I played with many other dolls while growing up that weren’t Bratz; for example, I played with Barbie dolls, Liv Dolls, Moxie dolls, Polly Pocket dolls, and even MyScene dolls. However, I would like to shine some light on the Bratz because they have paved the way for many girls who were my age, and they have shaped me into who I am today.
Still need more
the As you can see from the photo above, this is one of the many ideas for Funko's. But despite the fact that Funko's are the most popular product, there are many ideas that have not been considered.
World of Figures: Izuku
I'm usually not a very proud person; despite my blended family background, I've always kept that feeling hidden away even when I felt accomplished. In this case however, this shot of my Izuku figure is perhaps one of my favorites. I love that I managed to capture his raw emotion and the level of detail to the figure. Izuku Midoriya is from the hit anime Boku no Hero, or My Hero Academia in English.
World of Figures: The Twin Wardens
Collecting anime figures is still a very new and enjoyable hobby for me. It started off small with pop figures, but eventually I started to crave something with a little more detail. I figured that since I had a well-paying job and didn't have a lot of major responsibilities like the traditional adults, I might as well splurge a little.
Mark's Favorite Power Rangers Toys
I started collecting Power Rangers toys back in 2013 and did so until late 2016. A majority of those purchases were from Toys "R" Us. Overall, I've spent over $300 worth of action figures and other toys during that time frame. In this article, I'll be counting down some of my favorite toys that I've chosen from my photo album on Facebook. I hope that you'll like my selections, so let's get started. I didn't have a shelf to display my action figures and other toys, so I used the top of my closet to display them.
Side Hustle to Side Hustle
My spouse still had a hard time with the concept of less products more advertising. What she came up with was a side hustle to her already existing side hustle.
The Demise of Toys 'R' Us: One Year Later
Everyone knows the Toys 'R' Us jingle by heart. We all sang it when all of us were kids—and as adults. Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the day that broke our hearts: the closing of all Toys 'R' Us stores. However, there is some good news that the beloved toy store is gearing up for a comeback. The question that came in my mind the other day: will it have the same nostalgic feel like before and be the same as I remembered as a child? According to multiple news articles, Toys 'R' Us is expected to return, just in time for the holiday season. Richard Barry, a former Toys 'R' Us executive, revealed plans for a relaunch. The new locations will be 10,000 square feet, as opposed to the 40,000 that was once proposed. As far as how many stores it'll open in the United States, those details are limited. Once more details are known, I'll be sure to update everyone.
