We live in the age of remakes and reboots. Have you ever wondered why? It's most likely because things were just better when you were younger. The television shows were better, the movies were better and the toys were definitely better. Nostalgia is one of those feelings that people are constantly trying to recapture and experience. I have learned that toys and board games is one of the easiest ways to go back to a much more simple and fun time. These things are great little time machines and reminders of the good moments from our childhood.

There is big money in collecting toys if you find the right ones. Globe Newswire reports that the toy market sees about a steady 10% increase every year and it is expected to be an $18 billion industry in another 10 years. There is good money in nostalgia.

Toy collecting is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the last 3 years. Since the COVID pandemic there has been a huge surge in people collecting. Maybe people have more time on their hands. Or maybe people have more disposable income to spend on things that they used to love.
