Your Childhood Toys Might be Worth Big Bucks…

According to another site in which I found this information, your childhood toys could be worth a fortune! My guess is that the people who desire to pay these crazy prices obviously didn’t have as good a childhood as you did. My parents had the best plan for raising us, they wouldn’t buy us anything but instead made friends with rich parents so we could play with their kid’s toys. It was a flawless plan which I intend to pass on to my kids…as soon as I acknowledge their existence…which may take a while. In the mean time enjoy the frustration you will no doubt get from seeing how valuable these toys are now. Thanks for selling those super-soakers at a garage sale for $2 mom! Great call! *These are listed prices on eBay, they don’t necessarily reflect the actual value of these toys. I mean, I sold myself on eBay for $32 and I’m worth $29.50 tops.   Super Soaker: $549 on eBay   Tamagotchi: $460 on eBay   Yong T-Rex Jurassic Park Toy: …

Wear your childhood!: Nostalgia inspired clothing

Little Mermaid and Star Wars inspired scarves? Skirts and dresses inspired by Goosebumps and Power Rangers? Where do I sign up? Also, where do I find out if it is socially acceptable for a grown man to wear a dress? ANSWER ME! Sorry about that, I just got so excited about these clothes. I’m almost as excited as my girlfriend…would be…if she existed… Anywho, Catherine McDermott over at CANDYPANTS Clothing has taken vintage bedsheets and pillowcases (apparently it is possible to make a pillowcase into something other than a candy bag at Halloween, who knew?) and turned them into some pretty sweet clothing and accessories. And get this, they are all for sale! YAY! Check out below to see some of the sweet items you can find at CANDYPANTS and if anyone has me for Secret Santa this year, I’m a size…I dunno…let’s say 36?

Voltron vs Power Rangers

As far back as I can remember (which is pretty far. Impressed?), the first cartoon I remember loving was Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The show only lasted like a year, but I still loved and talked about it for years after. So imagine my delight when I saw a live-action version of the the show like 10 years later, only now the show was called Power Rangers and instead of Lions coming together to form Voltron, it was a bunch of dinosaur zords coming together to form Megazord. The shows were clearly the exact same, even down to the colours of the Lions and Zords. So naturally I loved Power Rangers just as much. But the question remains: who would win in a chili cook off? Let the battle begin! Voltron Power Rangers   *Update* Here is a video of a guy comparing the two. At least I assume it’s what he is doing, i didn’t watch it but I used is photo image for this post so I figure I should give him …
