Weekly Watch: National Museum of Play, #familytime, #toyhalloffame, #strongmuseum #vintagetoys, #gijoe

Over this past weekend I took my family to the National Museum of Play, formerly the Strong National Museum of Play, in Rochester, NY. It’s about an hour and 45 minutes from where I live. This was the second time I have been. The place is an amazing place filled with everything a kid and a a big kid love.

Gi Joe Adventure Team- “Just Joe-In”, #gijoe, #adventureteam, #justjoe-in,

At least once a week I am going to create a post featuring Gi Joe. I am calling it “Just Joe-In” That kind of came about from my wife asking me one day what I was doing and as I was cleaning a vintage Joe, I said “Oh, I’m just Joe-in around.” I just wanted to upload a few pics of a new GiJoe Adventure Team figure I put [contentblock id=1 img=code.png]together.

The Adventure Team and reignited life into the Gi Joe line after the Vietnam War had slowed the sales of the military versions of Joe. Joe became a Jungle Explorer , a Desert Survivalist, a Treasure Hunter, and had many run ins with often undersized vicious animals! In the mid 70s due to the increase popularity of Bionics, thanks to the Six Million Dollar Man…

For anyone who grew up through the 60s, 70s, and 80s in the lower North Eastern part of the US should have fond memories of the Hills Department Store. They had the best Christmas commercials! Every year at this time I always remember them and going to Hills and seeing their Christmas and toy displays. Oh what joyful times that was.

Hey, Hey I wanna be a Flock Star, Re-Flocking Vintage Gi Joes, #GiJoe, #AdventureTeam, #flockedheads

Have ya ever thought about reflocking an old Gi Joe Adventure Team Figure? Well if you answered yes, then read on my friend!!
