- Who are you?
My name is Dave Ralph and I live in Cleveland, Ohio with my wife and kiddo. I love collecting video games and am a firm believer that Iron Man is better than Batman. The Back To The Future movies are my favorite but Pump Up The Volume did more for me than any other single piece of art. I’ll watch Newsies at any time and Saved By The Bell is the best tv show in existence; Breaking Bad and The Wire are a close second. Amityville Horror is the scariest movie of all time but Rosemary’s Baby is perfect. My favorite video game is Super Mario Brothers but I dig Lemmings, Sunset Riders, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors too.
But really I’m just a dude who has a family, a Peter Pan complex and a bunch of old toys.
I have an ever growing collection of Nintendo cartridge and movies on most formats. I want to get my hands on anything Back To The Future or Freddy Krueger. I really like finding toys that I once played with and giving them to my daughter. It’s a total blast seeing that circle of events.
I’ll post nonsense about being a nostalgia collector and a father. But I’m also going to show off my collection and post articles related to what’s on my mind.
- What’s with the stuff I sell?
Through my travels in toy collecting I come across bunches of old toys that were once craved and cried over, some still are. I’ll pick ‘em up and unload them to you through my store or direct contact on social media and here. I enjoy trades when it comes to toys & movies so always feel free to offer up a barter.
I make Buttons and other tacky items too. Not only can I offer custom stuff but I make my own creations.
- What’s the actual point of it all?
I’m just writing up my thoughts and opinions in hopes that people will enjoy it enough to purchase things from me. If I some how make enough money through all this hoopla to live my life raising my daughter and playing with my wife I will be a very happy human.
