M.A.S.H. Model Kits

Remember the hit 70s TV Show? MASH was one of my favorites! Although the setting was a bit depressing, the characters were brilliant! They all managed to make the show humorous yet poignant. Celebrate one of the greatest TV shows of all time with these Revell model kits!

General Hospital's Beauty & The Geek

Holly's favorite TV Show is General Hospital, especially because of character Damian Spinelli aka "The Jackal". He's a geeky comic book loving computer hacker who won the heart of the show's sexy bad girl, Maxie Jones. Today was Spinelli and Maxie's wedding day on the show and it was absolutely brilliant! Everything a soap opera should be! GH had been sucking over the last couple of years, but they hit gold with this unlikely couple. And just to win the hearts of we toy fanatics, Spinelli's girl bought him Superman Christmas ornaments last year! Here he sits stunned as he holds up his Maximista's special gift. She truly understands him.

Spinelli and Maxie may have made it to the altar, but the groom halted the ceremony. In a moment of maturity Spinelli realized that the love of his life was not ready to get married. But the quirky couple are more in love than ever!

RARE Donkey Kong Figure

Remember Donkey Kong??? It was one of the most popular video games of all time! It first became an arcade hit in 1981, where kids dropped in their quarters in order to help Mario (yeah, THAT Mario!) rescue the damsel from the giant gorilla. Over 20 years later and kids of all ages are playing it on their Nintendo at home. To celebrate this beloved game a line of toys was created by Toy Site in 1999 featuring the various characters. We have a VERY RARE Cranky Kong figure up for auction this week!  BID NOW! Go HERE first to save $$$ On ALL your future eBay Purchases!!!

We went to see Tim Burton's 9 last night to surprise Genevieve, who had been dying to see it! She loved it, although said it was very loud. Mick and I both enjoyed it. We agreed that the ending should've gone in a different direction, but despite that it's one of the most beautifully animated fims we've ever seen! While we were at Comic Con this year we managed to get those awesome 9 promo cards! We currently have a complete set up for auction! BID NOW!

Yakky Doodle Came To Town

According to The Cartoon Scrapbook, Hanna-Barbera's cartoon duck Yakky Doodle made his first appearance in 1960 in an episode of Augie Doggie & Doggie Daddy, which led to his own segment on The Yogi Bear Show. He was never quite a huge superstar like Yogi, but he did later appear in Wacky Races and Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics.

We currently have this very rare Warner Bros. Studio Store Yakky Doodle plushie up for auction! BID ON YAKKY! Go HERE first to save $$$ On ALL your future eBay Purchases!!!

We will draw one lucky name out of a hat on or around September 30th. To enter the contest simply join our Facebook Group and send us a PM with any suggestions you may have to spruce it up! We want to create a fun and interactive community of toy lovers!

Why eBay?

With all the griping and complaining going on it's probably surprising to find some people still sticking it out with the giant auction site. We've been ebayers since the late 1990s and we still love it. Yeah, there have been problems and irritations, but where else can you have a storefront, a ready clientele, free accounting services and a brand name for much less than it would cost to have a physical store??? I still have a complaint about the final value fee structure, but for now I'm content to write the expenses off on my tax return. It is a real business after all.

In the weeks to come I'll throw out my insights about the various eBay pros and cons, for those wanting to buy or sell with them. Stay tuned!

Why Toys?

What is it about toys that makes people just light up from the inside out? Perhaps it calls up a fond remembrance of childhood when things were so much simpler. Or maybe it's the bright cheerful colors, the crazy characters, the silly names? No matter the reason, we sell toys and have been making people happy all over the world! We hope you'll visit our store and see the many different collectibles we have to offer. From Disney to DC and Marvel superheroes to long lost TV shows, we've got the toys you've been searching for!

The once a year blog post!

OMG! I cannot believe it has been over a year since we posted on this blog!!! I think I'm only keeping it open until we change Mick's website. I am not going to update every single page just to change the link to the blog. So let's get an update going...

Mick finally printed his first ever Al B. Mouse book! It's called Al B. Mouse's Abecedarium and it's a wacky ABC book. It's gotten rave reviews from the kids in Gen's class, as well as people at Comic Con. We only printed 200, but we're not heavily promoting it so you might be able to get a copy. Go to: Al B. Mouse's Abecedarium to buy your copy.

Genevieve just started THIRD GRADE!!! She's still loving school. Yaayyy!

Holly is still running the family store, Mick and Holly's Stuff. She is trying various marketing strategies, including starting a blog for toy fans.

We are currently saving up for a trip to Disney World. If you would like to contribute $5 or $10 to make our vacation a reality, you may do so with our blessing...
