Welcome to Toy Land

“Welcome to Toy Land!” This is the one place where I can finally relax and catch up on the events of the day. I like to surround myself with some of my latest finds … how many can you recognize from your childhood?” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

Digging Through Boxes

Digging Through Boxes

“This is what I love doing most -- digging deep through boxes of old toys. I just can’t wait to see what’s waiting inside an old toy chest or forgotten closet. If it’s filled with old toys, I am sooo there!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

Hasbro Toys

Hasbro Toys

“I love the way Hasbro [Toys] reused many of their old molds and box art to reintroduce the line for collectors. Here I check out one of my favorite toys from the GI Joe line: the Locust!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

Collecting in Volume

Collecting in Volume

“Pete shows me the finer points of collecting in volume! He has mastered the tricky art of displaying loose items with great finesse. What the cameras didn’t pick up: me knocking into the shelf after filming and watching them all come crashing down. Sorry, Pete!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

One of the Coolest Toys

One of the Coolest Toys

“‘Go-Go-Gadget!’ This was one of the coolest toys on the market at the time. While the [1999] movie starring Matthew Broderick may have been forgotten, the toys weren’t! I played with this even after the cameras stopped rolling!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

“Taking a minute to check out an awesome vintage helicopter from the [1984] TV show Blue Thunder. I used to watch that when it was on!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

Meeting Toy Dealers

Meeting Toy Dealers

“My hunts also lead me to some fantastic dealers as well. I love meeting people who deal in the same genre as I do. Here I take a break at Fly Creek Pickers in North Carolina. You see that stuffed raccoon in the front? I seriously wanted it, but could not figure out how to check it on the plane as a carry-on!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280

  

Talking Toys

Talking Toys

“This is what it’s all about -- just hanging out with new friends, talking about toys. I think Rennie and I spent like 2 hours up in that room, just digging through boxes!” - Jordan Hembrough 960 1280
