We all remember our favorite toy

Did you grow up with toys? I did too. Sometimes nostalgia can be a little dramatic and frankly boring. Richard has reminded me of the value in a walk down memory lane. Because of this show (which I listen to on my lunchbreaks at work) I decided to start collecting some of my favorite childhood toys. Very rare that a podcast crosses the line between entertainment and real life. Toys Were Us did that for me.

A Nostalgia Fest of Joy!

Richard and Brian take you down memory lane to a much simpler time when toys ruled! Not only will you learn something about your favorite toys but you will also be wildly entertained by Richard and Brian’s commentary! A great show for ages 3 and up and I would even recommend it to you wild two year olds who don’t mind learning new words! Keep up the awesomeness guys!!!

Unexpected!

Came in thinking this was some old dude talking about the history of toys, for some reason, then heard two funny trolls discuss the intricate details and history of the game operation. Extremely fascinating discussion. Didn't actually see coming how entetained I'd be, but it was a pretty pleasant surprise. Highly recommend anyone check this out, and the game 'Operation' is a great start!
