When I started developing this website the biggest thing that stood out to me is that it’s been 8 years since the first podcast episode of Too Old to Grow Up! Too Old to Grow Up! was one of the coolest names I’ve managed to come up with over the years and it helped launch a fantastic podcast that has many episodes that still mean something even today, because we often talked about the past. So it’s perfect here to keep that alive in a way that it represents so much of my history with my collectibles. Some people collect art or sports memorabilia, I collect toys. Many of the toys in my collection are the actual toys that I played with as a kid, some of them are new collectibles and some were repurchased with nostalgia. I also collect many other things like video games, movies and comic books. These days I don’t collect as much and my purchases have slowed way down but the collection that I have is so much fun to enjoy.
Recently I have enjoyed getting on board with the Table Top/ Board Gaming craze. As much fun as it is to play video games I have realized that getting together with people and playing games has been a blast. Games range from classics like Monopoly to brand new games like Munchkin and One Night Ultimate Werewolf. This year my collection starting growing a bit so I decided to build a nice board game shelf to store them. Currently the shelf has lot of room to add new games so it’s been decorated with other collectibles from around the room.
From toys to games I’ll always be a big kid at heart. I also enjoy reading fiction books, watching comic book movies and TV shows and visiting Comics on the Green for new comic books. It’s all just a part of being Too Old to Grow Up! It keeps me young and it’s given me a lot to share with my kids.
