My jaw was literally on the floor the entire time on my first trip to the newly opened Time Zone Toys in Boise. I am so happy to report about a new toy store in the area that buys sells and trades toys. I was shocked to see such a huge amount of inventory for a store that just opened.
Not just packed with packaged toys from current to classic, unpackaged toys are abundantly found, many that I have never seen in the wild. A huge, solid GI Joe display case is happening, with a store goal on having the largest GI Joe selection in the great Northwest (Unless I empty that case out on my next visit).
So many classic toys to send you time traveling; Karate Kid, Batman Forever, 90210 Dolls, Skeleton Warriors, Bill and Ted toys, and SeaQuest to name just a tiny percentage. I am looking forward to getting the opportunity to do some trading with some of the boxed and open stuff I have hoarded over the years, and probably some buying too (prices were very fair). Seeing all this great stuff gives me some good perspective on keeping collections in control too.
WELL WHAT DID I GET, YOU ASK???
I traded a few old things for; that nice reissue Mego Batman (Yeah, can't believe I missed that in stores). A shiny bluuuuuuue Power Ranger from the first movie (scratch that off my list). And Captain Bridger from SeaQuest (I have a Darwin that needs his master).
I am already excited for my next visit, with inventory moving around, there should be new stuff to see every visit. The store is a clean and vibrant place to be, and I hope they add a "Norm's Bar Stool" for me to sit in, as that guy who never leaves.
