Our annual holiday season celebration of the toys of yore returns…
Happy holidays, folks — and welcome back to TOYHEM!, our salute to your favorite playthings of yesteryear.
TOYHEM! debuted in 2019 and it was such a success that we’ve made it an annual event.
Now, what exactly is TOYHEM? Well, it’s a series of features and remembrances about all those cool Megos, Captain Actions, G.I. Joes, etc., that we loved as kids — and love today!
You can click here to see what 2019 brought and click here for the 2020 edition. Plus, you should bookmark this new post because we’ll be regularly updating with links as we hurtle toward the finale on Christmas Day.
(By the way, the name TOYHEM! came from my family’s term for when my son used to overwhelm the living room with his voluminous action figures, playsets and Legos. He’s 22 now, has his own place — and keeps his figs nice and tidy. A chip off the ol’ block it turns out.)
