Welcome to TOYHEM 2022!

Our fourth annual holiday season celebration of the toys of yore…

Happy holidays, folks — and welcome to the fourth annual TOYHEM!, our salute to your favorite playthings of yesteryear.

Now, what exactly is TOYHEM? 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!

There are links to the previous years’ TOYHEM indexes below. Plus, you should bookmark this 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 23 now, has his own place — and keeps his figs nice and tidy. A chip off the ol’ block it turns out.)

Anyway, we’re already under way, so dig these LINKS
