Forgotten Friday, Paper Football, #geekdad, #football, #tabletopgames

This past Sunday we had my Daughter’s 12th birthday party at my in law’s house. My daughter had a few friends over, of course, and my son had a friend over as well. After the party’s festivities were done, candles blown out, cake eaten, and presents opened, my son and his friend wanted the girls to play hide and seek. The girls wanted no part of this as they were busy with, uh…whatever little girls do…. I was sitting at the big oak dining room table digesting birthday cake that…

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. There is a mini Wegman’s Grocery store, kids get to fill their mini carts up with groceries and then cash out at the mini registers. It’s all fake food but…

Forgotten Friday! The awesome MEGO company. #mego, #Forgotten Friday #DC, #marvel

Man, do I remember how awesome the MEGO company was. That company had licenses to more characters than any other I think. They had Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Marvel, DC, Tarzan, Planet of the Apes, Dukes of Hazzard, Star Trek, the list could go and on. I grew up playing with the Pocket Size Super Heroes And the other DC and Marvel figures from their World’s Greatest Super Heroes line:  I loved my HULK figure! Star Trek, was popular line and is still wanted by the Trekkies! I remember…

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. This figure is a Hasbro 40th Anniversary head (repro of original), a super poseable GiJoe modern body, and…

Forgotten Friday: Kenner Super Powers Collection #superpowers, #justiceleagueofamerica, #superfriends

Well, now that the holidays are over, it’s back to business. This week’s Forgotten Friday is all about one of the coolest toy lines from my childhood: Kenner’s Super Powers Collection.   I remember seeing an advertisement on the back cover of a comic book I had as a kid and immediately had to have the whole collection, especially Flash! The line consisted of all of the major DC Comics heroes and villians as well as a few hardly known characters. There were three series released all over the period…

Happy Honda Days Vintage Toy Commercials, who’s best? #heman, #JEM, #gijoe, #gumby, #hondadays

So we have linked these Honda Commercial before but after watching them again a few more times and really enjoying them, it is a hard decision which I like best. I am kind of biased as I am a huge Gi Joe Adventure Team fan, so GI Joe and Jem are awesome together, but then the Heman Skeletor Bromance is absolutely hilarious. I have no idea which Honda car they are even showcasing in any of these, I don’t remember, but I do know Honda is doing it and they…
