  • E16: A Panda, a Giraffe, and Ken O'Brien Walk into a Toy Store...

    Dec 2 2021

    One of the greatest catchphrases of the 1980s has to be, “I don’t wanna grow up because if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys R Us kid!”  If that was your motto as a kid in the eighties, or still is today then this is the episode for you! 

    In this hour the guys discuss, in detail, some of the bigger toy stores of the era alongside some of the smaller regional shops. They also talk about which stores were their favorites, and the everlasting magic of a great toy store visit.

    In addition, T&J discuss how the disappearance of brick and mortar toy stores is affecting our favorite xennial hosts, plus they share what the toy buying experience is like now with their kids. 

    So grab your birthday money and break open the piggy bank because just in time for Christmas Jay and Tony are unwrapping everything you want to know about classic toy stores!

    Nov 4 2021

    If you're a xennial like us, what other toyline, movie franchise, cartoon, or comic book screams late 80’s more than The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
